He attributed the increment to modularised TVET assessment which the board started implementing last year. He says the module assessment brings flexibility which allows students to study as they also work.

UBTEB’s Manager of vocational education, jalia Nasaza said that module assessment does not require academic minimum qualifications for one to enroll hence even those who dropped out of school find themselves coming back to get a certificate.

It is against this background that the board has hired extra scouts slated to manage the examinations.
