The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has announced that candidates would be able to access results of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Board, UTME, beginning from Tuesday, May 2.

According to the board, the announcement followed an emergency meeting within its top hierarchy over the weekend in Abuja.

The management, in the minutes obtained by this medium, disclosed that it deliberately delayed the release of results in order to carry out all necessary screenings.

The minutes of the meeting read, “The Board would be releasing the results of candidates, who have taken the examination so far on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023. The Board had delayed the release to ensure that all necessary screening are concluded besides ensuring that the mean and standard deviation are reasonably obtained before releasing these results.

The board furthered that candidates who has technical issues while taking their papers would not see their results but would only notified of their rescheduled examinations.

In the same vein, JAMB also revealed that make-up examinations had been set for three set of candidates who missed their examinations last week.

“All candidates, who could not sit the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time owing to no fault of theirs, would be rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, 6th May, 2023.

“Candidates under these categories are principally those who were verified at their centres but could not sit the examination; those who could not be biometrically verified, and those with mismatched data.”

However, JAMB announced it would be employing innovative technologies in conducting the exercise in attempt to stem the tide of examination malpractices.

“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 the examination on the first day. This notwithstanding, out of the 1,586,765 candidates that indicated an interest in sitting the examination, only 80,166 are now outstanding.

“On the first day of the 2023 UTME, a number of candidates in some centres could not sit the examination as well as in some centres in subsequent days due to diverse reasons. Though a reasonable number of them have been rescheduled and have taken the examination, some are yet to take their examination.

“As part of the decisions reached at the end of an emergency management meeting held on Sunday, 31st April 2023, the Board has fixed Saturday, 6th May 2023, for all categories of candidates who have not sat their examination, as listed below, to take their examination,” the board said.
