Education minister Janet Museveni has released her first results.
On Thursday, Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) released Primary Leaving Examinations in which examination results of at least 1,886 candidates were withheld.
The event took place at Office of the Prime Minister in Kampala.
UNEB chairperson, Prof Mary Okwakol said the results were withheld over examination malpractice.
According to Prof Okwakol, non-Universal Primary Education (UPE) candidates performed better than UPE candidates.
Candidates in 2016 performed better than last year, particularly in English language and social studies subjects.
A total of 63,400 candidates passed in Division One of the 640,833 candidates who sat from 12,391 registered centres.
