These results are not only essential for gauging academic progress but also serve as a prerequisite for registering for the Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) exams.

Checking UCE Results via SMS

For individuals with mobile phones, regardless of internet connectivity, checking UCE results via SMS offers a convenient option. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Compose SMS:

Open your messaging app and initiate a new message. Type “UCE” followed by your index number, ensuring the inclusion of a space between “UCE” and your index number (e.g., “UCE U008876/003”).

Send Message:

Once you’ve verified the accuracy of your index number, send the message to the shortcode 6600.

Receive Results:

Upon processing, you’ll receive a reply message containing your subject-wise performance.

It’s important to note that standard SMS charges apply to this service.
