2024 S1 Entrance Interview Results


To be admitted at St. Joseph's, a student must have successfully completed PLE (Primary Leaving Examination) to qualify for Lower/Ordinary Level entry or UCE (Uganda Certificate of Education). To qualify for Higher Level entry or UACE (Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education), a student must have successfully completed  UCE. 

Admission Information

  • Our institution is an exclusively male secondary school, thus prospective students must be male to become part of our community.

  • We are a catholic church-founded school, therefore students who join us must be Catholics. 

  • To gain admission to S1, candidates are required to successfully complete interviews conducted at the school towards the conclusion of each academic year. Typically, P7 candidates have completed their P.L.E examinations by this juncture.

  • Application forms for interviews can be obtained from designated parishes when we announce vacancies through our website, parish networks, and other public platforms. Alternatively, forms are also available for pickup at the school.

  • Students who were unable to participate in the S1 entrance interviews, particularly those residing outside the designated parishes in our catchment areas of Mbarara, Ntungamo, Bushenyi, Ibanda, and Isingiro, are also eligible to enroll in our school. However, admission requires a minimum passing of Grade One. 

  • To be Admitted in S5, one must have sat for and passed U.C.E examinations. To attain a combination of desired subjects, the candidate must have passed each subject with at least credit 4 (C4). It is important to highlight that failure to attain at least a credit 4 (C4) in a specific subject may impact the ability to fulfill the desired combination.

  • We also admit students in other classes where vacancies are available excluding candidate classes. 

  • Students joining us must be aware that we're a very competitive institution and highly keen on discipline and religion, a student who falls out of line may be asked to leave us.
