He was impressed by the performance and commended the students and the Heads of examination centers together with the staff for the big improvement.

The Board highlighted the following areas that needs improvement;

a) Admission of students with foreign awards who do not bather to have their qualifications equated to the Ugandan system in time.

b) Registration of students with wrong/mismatching biodata details should be avoided.

c) Admission of students for courses that are not accredited to their centre by the Board.

d) Delay and non-submission of Continuous Assessment marks by heads of centers have remained their norm.

e) Encouragement of students retaking previous papers to attend classes

The Board has has many platforms ranging from a website (www.ubteb.go.ug), to social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp accounts for passing information about UBTEB activities.

The Board has done what it takes within its means to modularize Technical Certificate assessment syllabi. It will soon expand the same for other remaining programs as it waits for fully modularized national training curricula. The heads of centers are therefore advised to prepare the instructors, students, equipment and all other resources required to facilitate this initiative.
