SIR— Paul Okello’s letter in Tuesday’s edition challenged my previous letter by saying: if UNEB sets two different PLE exams for rural and urban schools, it means that different examinations for O and A-level will have to be set and a separate university be established for them! I would like to inform Okello that the example he gave that if a pupil from say Bwindi joins King’s College Budo, he/she will be disadvantaged is false. For Okello’s information, some students from poor schools located in deep rural areas always join schools of good standard and perform far much better than students in urban schools. There are even students from urban schools who get discontinued at the end of Senior One due to academic inadequacy. On the other hand, there are brilliant pupils from village schools. For instance, recently, a friend of mine whose name I will not mention joined St Joseph’s Vocational School in Mbarara with aggregate 38 in six subjects after O-level. You may not believe it but this boy was the best in the school at the end of Senior Six with AAB and went to Makerere University without any doubts being raised. When I advised UNEB to set two different PLE exams for pupils in rural and urban primary schools, I was not against a national, balanced education. I was merely trying to advise UNEB to look for a way of improving their conditions like they are in urban schools. Ebenezer Ten Bifubyeka, Mbarara tenbifubyeka@yahoo.com
