Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that results of candidates, who took the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), will be released today.
A statement by the organisation said those who took the test but encountered challenges without knowing, would not get results, but notifications for rescheduled examination.
JAMB clarified: “Candidates under these categories are principally those who were verified at their centres but could not sit for the examination, and those who could not be biometrically verified, as well as those with mismatched data. You will recall that the Board scheduled the conduct of the 2023 UTME for April 25 to May 2.”
The examination body added that: “It is equally noteworthy that the Board had informed Nigerians that it would be using some novel innovative methods in conducting the exercise with the aim of completely arresting incidence of examination infractions.”
“This has been largely achieved as the exercise recorded the lowest reported cases of infractions, but with equally emerging challenges on account of human negligence, which led to some candidates not being able to sit for the examination on the first day. This notwithstanding, out of the 1,586,765 candidates that indicated interest in sitting for the examination, only 80,166 are now outstanding.
“As part of the decisions reached at the end of an emergency management meeting held on April 30, the Board has fixed May 6 for all categories of candidates, who have not sat for their examination.”
