October, 2012 - Earlier this year the Kishanje Learning Advancement Center (KLAC) was approved by the Uganda Ministry of Education as a testing facility for secondary school students. This is a major achievement for the school as it means our students will not have to incur travel expenses and fees to undergo tests at other locations. It also means students from around the district will now pay fees to KLAC for their testing.
In Uganda, it is necessary to pass a national exam in order to advance grade levels beyond primary school. The testing also determines whether a student will follow "O" level (ordinary) education or "A" level (advanced). Students feel enormous pressure and study for weeks before exam time.
