Primary Leaving Exam Passing Rate 
 
 
 

In 2011, HVU launched the Enrichment Program, a weekly tutoring program designed to give Primary 7th-grade schoolchildren the educational support they needed to pass the Primary Leaving Exam (PLE) and become eligible for secondary school.

The results have been dramatic. As of March 2018, 100% of the children who attended the Enrichment Program passed the PLE, comparing favorably with the PLE passing rate of 85% in their local schools, 87% in the Rubanda District, and 92% nationally among children who were not beneficiaries of the program.

Primary Leaving Exam -- Passing RatesSignificantly, of the Enrichment Program graduates, 96% have enrolled in secondary school, far exceeding the national matriculation rate of 24%. The Enrichment Program's strong results imply that its combination of academic support, practice drills and individual mentoring result in consistently high standards of performance from the girls and boys.
