The objectives were: to ascertain the variation in discipline levels amongst the students from Central and Northern Uganda; the extent to which student disciplines influence students’ performances in UCE examinations in schools in Uganda and the strength of influence of the students’ disciplines on students’ performances in UCE examinations. Data was collected from school leaders, teachers, students and Key informants using interviews, questionnaires and Informal Conversations and analysed using, frequency counts, percentages and t-test. The results showed that students studying in schools in Central Uganda are better disciplined, than the students in Northern Uganda. The students’ discipline has the strongest influence on their academic performances.
