The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it may start releasing results of the recently held Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) from Friday, as disclosed by the board’s spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin,in a chat with The Guardian.
The release of the 2019 UTME results have been delayed due to widely observed malpractice that tainted the examination. Due to the infractions, the registrar of the board said, “the examination will be well scrutinised before the results are released.”
Benjamin, in his chat, said the examination board has banned 100 of the 687 Computer Based Test (CBT) centres over allegation of malpractices and violation of extant regulations.
“In the course of our biometric examination, over 100 centres are discovered to be involved in acts not in tandem with JAMB rules and have been banned from participating in examinations,” he said.
