“Please head teachers, mobilize all the registered Candidates to come to sit for exams, whether pregnant or married, they have a right to sit for exams, that was COVID 19’s problem,” ojangole said.
Ojangole said Pallisa has registered a total of 6196 P.7 candidates to face P.L.E due on the 30/03/2021 to 31/03/2021. She added that out of these, 4409 candidates got registered on government UPE scheme while 1787 registered as Private (non UPE) candidates.
