By John Eremu SENIOR one entry points for girls have this year been relaxed but those of boys maintained last year's level despite a decline in overall performance. Entry to leading schools is stiffer than last year, particularly in girls' schools. The chairman of the selection committee, Mr. Moses Otyek, told headteachers yesterday that girls with up to aggregate 28 could be admitted but boys had to have a maximum of 24. Last year, the cut-off aggregate for girls was 26 and 24 for boys. "At aggregate 26, we found we were not getting them (girls) so we pushed it to 28," Otyek said. Mt. St. Mary's College Namagunga and Gayaza, however, only took candidates with aggregate five, up from last year's six. King's College Budo also took boys with only aggregate five but lowered the entry points for girls from last year's six to seven. Cut offs for the other schools were: Namilyango 6, Mary Hill High 7, Trinity College Nabbingo 7, Makerere College 7 boys and girls 8. Iganga SS, Busoga College Mwiri, Bweranyangi Girls, Wanyange and Kiira College Butiki took candidates with aggregates eight while Lubiri, Jinja College, Kigezi High and Nabumali stopped at nine. Kigezi and Nabumali being mixed schools absorbed girls with aggregate 10 and 11 respectively. Kitante Hill, Kyebambe Girls and Wairaka admitted those with aggregate 10 but Wairaka took girls with 11 as well. Kyambogo College, Teso College Aloet, Ibanda and Makobore High stopped at 11, Entebbe SS, St. Charles Lwanga Koboko and Bukedi College Kachonga stopped at 13 while Manjasi, Comboni College Lira and Bubulo Girls stopped at 14. Sir Tito Winyi admitted those with up to aggregate 15, Dr. Obote's College, 16 and Sacred Heart Gulu, 16 and St. Catherine Lira and Nkoma SS stopped at 19. Otyek said the re-admission of repeaters to senior one or year one in technical schools were officially not allowed. "Where this is done, it should not block the admission of fresh students," Otyek said. He said the 10% places normally reserved in boarding schools should be filled in consultation with the chairman of the selection committee. Ends
