The Education minister, Namirembe Bitamazire, has asked the Uganda National Examinations Board to tighten its grip on schools and students
Involved in examination Malpractice.
The minister said this shortly after the UNEB secretary Mathew Bukenya announced that A-Level examination results of 128 candidates have been cancelled.
During the released of the 2006 A-level examination results, Bukenya said the affected students had either received external assistance or smuggled notes to the examination halls.
Bitamazire said she is concerned about some students and teachers who have continued to abet examination malpractices with impunity.
Bukenya told the minister that UNEB is introducing photographic academic certificates as one of the measures aimed at curbing impersonation.
Bukenya said the measure follows concerns that many people have continued to forge UNEB certificates.
Meanwhile 16, 809 out of the more than 90,000 students who sat for the A-Level examinations in 2006 scored four principal passes.
