PLE was conducted on November 8 and 9, 2023 with a total of 749,254 pupils from 15,859 centres registered compared to 832,654 in 2022. Of this number, 501,602(66.9%) from 11,365 centres were UPE beneficiaries and 247,652(33%) of the pupils were non UPE.
This marks the initial batch of exams results made public by the authorities.
UNEB has conveyed parents, candidates and other interested parties to use the Short Messaging Service (SMS) on mobile networks which will post results of candidates on their mobile sets instantly.
How to check results on Phone?
You can get the 2023 PLE Results for any candidate in a few simple steps.
