By John Eremu and Charles Wendo THE 2000 Ordinary Level examinations results were released yesterday with St. Mary's College Kisubi and Mt. St. Mary's College Namagunga fielding 10 candidates among the 14 who got aggregate eight for the best eight subjects. The results listed basing on old districts, showed general improvement in overall performance, but the traditional schools in central region still dominated the show. Kisubi topped Mpigi district by producing all the five best students and likewise Namagunga in Mukono. St. Henry's College Kitovu and Ndejje SS swept Masaka and Luweero respectively. In Kampala, Makerere College School produced the top three candidates followed by Kyambogo College and Kibuli SS. The best students in Kisubi were Joseph Kaggwa Kakande, Brian Baingana, John Baptist Nkanga, Louis Okema and Isaac Kimaze Semakadde, all with aggregate eight in the best eight subjects. In Namagunga, Ruth Namazzi, Olivia Kim Kamarebe, Regina Mwenyango, Hilda Koburunga and Paula Okumu Wengi also scored aggregate eight for the best eight subjects. The other four candidates who got aggregate eight were Sezi Mubezi from Kiira College Butiki, Stephen Twinomugisha from Ntare School, Anthony Rucukye from St. Joseph's Vocational School Mbarara and Haria Dhruv of Makerere College School. The secretary Uganda National Examinations Board Mr. Matthew Bukenya, said there were no cases of examination leakages just like last year, but the number of results cancelled over malpractices totalled 1,538 up from 258 the previous year. He said the malpractices were mainly in form of external assistance, impersonation, colluding and smuggling notes into the examination halls. Schools with the worst cases of malpractices, some of whose results were cancelled, included Ssaku SS in Luweero, Kilembe and Rwenzori High in Kasese, Bukulula in Masaka, Tunyi in Mbale, Burambagira in Bundibugyo and Nakanyonyi in Mukono. They are all government-aided schools. The others are St. Martin's Narozari Masaka, Springfield College Mukono, St. Johns SS Buyambi and Mitandi and Ibaale SS in Kabarole, all private schools. State Minister for Primary Education, Ms. Geraldine Bitamazire, warned of stern measures particularly against education officials abetting malpractices, which she said, undermines the examination system. The number of candidates who registered for the examinations rose by 8.09%, from 84,803 the previous year to 91,666, Bukenya said. He said performance level at Grade One rose by 36.23% with 16,121 candidates passing in Division One up from 11,832 in 1999. The overall pass rate also improved from 88.50% in 1999 to 92.58%. Mathematics remained the worst done subject with a failure rate of 51.95% although this was better than 1999. Ends
