According to Odongo, they took the drastic decision because some students never pay their school dues after receiving the results on phone, which leaves schools with financial losses.

Uganda National Examinations Board-UNEB has withheld the Uganda Certificate of Education-UCE results of unspecified number of candidates with fees balances in their former schools.
 

The UNEB Executive Secretary, Dan Odongo disclosed this during the release of the 2018 UCE examination results at Uganda Bureau of Statistics on Thursday afternoon.  

 
He explained that the examination body withheld the results of the fees defaulters at the request of their former schools. 

"Students who owed school dues will not be able to access their results via the mobile phone application. These results will only be available at their schools but not on phone," he said.

Odongo advises parents to pay up and avoid inconveniences. "As you pay, only pay what you owe the schools. Schools are not allowed to make you pay for anything outside of the fees balance you owe," he said.

Meanwhile UNEB  advises parents not to pay extra charges to schools while picking the results.
