2018 UTME Results Will Not Be Released Immediately - JAMB

The Joint Admission Matriculation Board, [JAMB] Gives Reasons Why the 2018 UTME Results Will Not Be Released Immediately After Examinations.

 The registrar of the Joint Admission Matriculation Board, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, during a press conference titled “Conduct of the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination” in Abuja on Wednesday has disclosed why the board will not be releasing the 2018 UTME results immediately unlike it did in 2017.

According to the registrar, the reason for the delay in releasing the results is to review the activities of the candidates and to minimise the number of cancellations.

“We want to monitor everything that happens through our CCT cameras. Last year, we proved a point that there is nothing extraordinary in the immediate release of results but we had to cancel some results when we found out what happened in some centres. So, if we have to take two or three days to look at the conduct of the candidates before releasing the result so as to minimise cancellation, then we will do so”, he said

Mr. Oloyede said no computer-based centre is allowed to collect any cash from the candidates adding that the board will release the agreed sum of N600 per candidate due to the centres to them.

He also said the board will not relent in its effort to tackle examination irregularities.

“It is fraudulent to engage in multiple registrations, although the new system of capturing live pictures through cameras instead of scanning of pictures, biometrics capturing of fingers and the order of arrangement of names has curtailed incidences of multiple registration”, he said

The registrar urged candidates to adhere strictly to the date and time allocated to them for examination.
