The Ministry of Education has released National examination results for Advanced level (senior six), Year-3 teachers training colleges, and Level-5 for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) schools.

“There is no secret to good performance apart from working hard, seeking advice from the teacher and focusing on always being the best. I revised my books with much concentration and my parents always made sure that I do all things at the right time,” Mugisha said.

“This milestone and champion goes to beloved teachers who taught with courage and always made sure that I understood everything,” he added.

Mugisha wants to pursue Mechanical engineering at the University. For Umuhuza, she will study Aerospace Engineering in the undergraduate.
