JAMB RELEASES RESULTS OF 1.7M CANDIDATES, BLACKLISTS 116 CENTRES FOR MALPRACTICES

JAMBThe Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has released the results of 1,792,719 candidates out of the 1,886,508 who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examinations in April.

 

Announcing the results in Abuja on Saturday, the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said 34,120 results were withheld, including the results of 15,145 candidates which were being further clarified as ‘identical twins and siblings.’

 
He explained further that 59,667 candidates were absent during the exams.

 
Oloyede stated, “A total of 1,826,839 sat for the UTME. Today, we are releasing the results of 1,792,719 candidates.

 

“Some 34,120 results are being withheld, including the results of 15,145 candidates being further clarified as identical twins and siblings.”

 

The board stated that the UTME, which was conducted between April 11 and 17, 2019 across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, was painstaking, describing it as a success story.

 

The JAMB registrar disclosed that 116 exam centres had been blacklisted, including a Computer-based Test centre in Akokwa in Delta State which bribed exam officers with N1.7m.

 

“We have recovered the payment voucher and the concerned staff are being investigated, but they claimed that they received the bribe because their lives were in danger,” Oloyede stated.

 

He noted that the exams recorded multiple registrations, pointing out that a candidate, for instance, registered 23 times for the examination.

 

Oloyede said, “A total of 116 centres have been de-listed or suspended. Out of this number, 18 have been sanctioned by the Governing Board of JAMB with suspension for between one and three years for registration-related misconduct.”

 
He directed candidates to send ‘RESULT’ to the short code, 55019, on their handsets, adding that they did not need to patronise a cyber cafe to check their results.
