Invigilator, headteacher, lab technician & 34 students in trouble for examination malpractice

The police of Kamuli are investigating allegations of examination malpractice against a UNEB examination invigilator, the headteacher, a laboratory technician and 34 students of Verona College in Kamuli district.

It’s alleged that on Tuesday 18/10/2022 at around 1200/c while waiting for their turn to do examinations, 34 students were found discussing suspected examination materials.

According to ASP Kasadha Micheal Regional PRO, Busoga North, preliminary investigations indicate that 64 candidates were to sit for the chemistry practical examinations at the centre.

However, given the limited space, candidates were divided into two groups of which one was in the examination room and another of 34 candidates in the waiting room.

It is during monitoring that the UNEB scout found the ones in the waiting room sharing suspected examination materials.

Kasadha adds that it is suspected that, there was no thorough check of students prior to entering the examination room.

Exhibits of evidential value were recovered and statements of the suspects were recorded as further inquiries are ongoing.

Last week, UNEB warned students and the school authorities in all centres to avoid engaging in malpractice. “Candidates and all concerned must note that involvement in malpractice in one paper shall lead to the cancellation of results of the whole examination,” warned UNEB.
