The Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has reported that three candidates from different primary schools have given birth during the Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) period in Serere District,.
According to UNEB spokesperson Ms. Jennifer Kalule, one of the candidates went into labor yesterday afternoon. Despite writing the morning paper, she experienced labor pains in the afternoon, leading to isolation and the subsequent delivery of her baby.
Ms. Kalule stated that the candidate, post-delivery, was granted an additional 45 minutes due to circumstantial impairment and successfully completed her paper.
Additionally, another candidate had given birth approximately six days prior, and she was permitted to attend school with her mother to care for the newborn. The third incident involved a candidate who delivered a month ago in Serere.
