These are examinations done by students who join vocational institutions after completing primary school level. The certificates they receive after a three year period are equivalent to Uganda Certificate of Education "O'level" certificate.

The vocational courses done at this level include; welding and fabrication, wood work technology, agriculture, plumbing, automotive mechanics, bricklaying, among others. UBTEB last year started releasing this set of examination results to enable students to enroll for advanced certificates with those who join vocational institutions after completing senior four.
