The Bill seeks to re­peal and re­place the Ugan­da­ Na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions board. Cap 137 s,which \\’as en­acted in 1983. Since 1983. Ugan­da’s ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem has un­der­gone a num­ber of re­forms rang­ing from le-gal. in­sti­tu­tional and pol­icy frame­work cou­pled with the so­cio-eco­nomic changes which have af­fected the op­er­a­tions of the Ex­am­i­na­tions Board and im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Act.
In ad­di­tion. since the en­act­ment of the Uganda Na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions Board Act. Cap 137 in 1983 there are new emerg­ing is­sues due to the chang­ing ed­u­ca­tional and tech­no­log­i­cal rev­o­lu­tion that re­quire re­view and ad­di­tional pro­vi­sions to ad­dress them. Some of the is­sues
in­clude mat­ters deal­ing with sys­tem­atic mea­sur­ing and mon­i­tor­ing the per­for­mance of in­di­vid­ual pupils, stu­dents, schools. The na­tional ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem needs to be strength­ened and made con­sis­tent with other le­gal pro­vi­sions. It is there­fore im­per­a­tive to re­form the law as
it does not meet cur­rent needs and the long-term goals of Gov­ern­ment in the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.
