The release of the Primary Leaving Examination (PLE) results in Uganda is a highly anticipated event for thousands of pupils and their families. These results determine the eligibility of students to move on to secondary school and ultimately pave the way for them to pursue their desired careers. The Ministry of Education and Sports is set to release the PLE results today, marking a pivotal moment for students as they prepare to embark on the next phase of their educational journey.
For students and their families, the PLE results are a crucial marker of academic achievement and a determining factor in their future education and career opportunities. The pass rate for the PLE is typically high. According to UNEB, a total of 832,809 candidates registered for the examination last year, making a percentage increase of 11.1% from the registration numbers of the previous examination year.
To ensure that students and their families have quick and secure access to the PLE results, we have created a step-by-step guide on how to check the results online.
How to Check Your PLE 2022 Results
There are two options for checking your results. The first option is to send an SMS to the shortcode 6600, which has a cost associated with it. The second option is to check your results through the UNEB online portal, which is not very dependable (seems the site was last updated in 2018).
To check for your kid’s results via SMS;
- Step 1: Open your message pad on your phone and type PLE <space> INDEX NUMBER of your kid and send to 6600.
- Step 2: The cost for each SMS is 500UGX and the service is available on both MTN and Airtel networks.

To check for your kid’s results via the UNEB’s e-registration online platform;
- Step 1: Visit the UNEB eReg Portal, and select Results https://ereg.uneb.ac.ug/results.
- Step 2: You will be redirected to a page that has a UNEB Results header. From here, enter your Index Number and tap Search.
It is important to keep in mind that the online portal may not be dependable, so we recommend checking the results via SMS as an alternative. For pupils who may have lost or forgotten their index number, we recommend contacting your school for assistance.
With this in mind, we hope that our guide will make the process of checking the PLE results as smooth and stress-free as possible.
