A few days ago, the UNEB blocked online access to Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) 2020 results after facing pressure from telecom companies MTN Uganda and Airtel Uganda which were contracted to notify students of results by mobile SMS.
To this end, UNEB advised parents and their children to utilize SMS services on mobile networks that would deliver results to their handsets immediately.
