Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) releases UTME result

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) yesterday released the results of the first Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted last Saturday.

Of the 1,276,795 candidates that sat for the examination, results of 48,188 are still being withheld for further screening, the JAMB Registrar/Chief Executive, Prof. ‘Dibu Ojerinde disclosed at a press briefing in Abuja.

"The results are on internet as I am speaking with you. Candidates do not need to buy any scratch card, their registration numbers can be used to check the results", he added.

Imo state has the highest number of applicants (111613); followed by Delta (86955), Anambra (83612), Osun (74014), Edo (70964) and Ogun (70905).

Borno (8296), Kebbi (6194), Yobe (5463), Sokoto (4754), Zamfara (3568) and FCT (2393) recorded the lowest number of applicants.

The examination took place in Nigeria and six foreign countries:- Ghana, Cameroun, Benin, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and South Africa.

Of the 2,705 centres used for the examination in 321 towns, 38 centres were still being investigated.

"After investigation, those candidates involved in serious malpractice would have their results cancelled", Ojerinde vowed.

Forty-six centres in Abia, Akwaibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Edo, Enugu, Imo, Lagos and Rivers are also being investigated for de-recognition.

Bayelsa has the highest number of results being withheld for further screening.

On why the board failed to announce the best results, Ojerinde said "in the past, we have declared some candidates to be the best and in the final analysis we discovered cases of malpractice".
