The 2015 Primary Leaving Examinations Results have been released. UNEB Chairperson, Prof Mary Aokol confirmed that this year's results had been released ahead of schedule. The early release was attributed to the innovations in technology that have been embraced by UNEB. Here's a quick summary about the 2015 PLE Results:
