Every one that intended to do a Bachelor of Laws at Makerere University may already know their fate now. Are you safe or you are going to try else where? Makerere University has released the results from the Law Pre Entry exam that was sat earlier this month on 13th.
From the 2058 candidates that sat the exam, only 460 were able to score 50% and above that is the usual pass-mark for the entry exam. These are divided across the four categories that they sat the exam in, to include; 27 that passed among the Diploma Holders, 378 from the A-Level leavers, 13 among the Mature entrants and 42 from the Degree Holders.
Contrary to last year’s batch that passed exceedingly, this year over 78% failed. The overall best student is Taremwa Victor Andrew from St. Mary’s College Kisubi who led the pack with 75%. The worst mark came in among the A-Level leavers also with a lady only managing to score 18%.
The exam is set covering areas like reading and comprehension skills; language skills; numerical skills and logic; general knowledge and analytical writing skills.
The academic registrar Alfred Namoah Masikye in a statement while releasing the results said that students who attained 50 and above qualify to join Law School in the new academic year which starts in August.
“The candidates who scored 50 per cent and above passed the examinations. The successful candidates who may be interested in studying Bachelor of Laws under private sponsorship should apply for Day or evening before the deadline of 30th April 2019,” Masikye said.
He went on to call upon those that are not satisfied with their results to appeal within two weeks from the date of release.
