MALPRACTICES: JAMB screens 1.3 million UTME results over impersonation, others [SEE STEPS ON HOW TO CHECK RESULTS]

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said on Tuesday that it had begun the screening of the results of over 1. 3 million candidates who had written the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, so as to fish out impersonation, multiple registrations and other forms of malpractices.

The board said it had therefore not yet released any UTME result, noting that candidates should “ expect their results soon . ”

The Head of Information , JAMB , Dr Fabian Benjamin, stated this in an interview , adding that the case of candidates who could not write the UTME due to biometric challenges was being deliberated upon with a view to finding a solution .

He said , “ The suspension of some CBT centres for technical defects has not affected our candidates. Also , we have to screen the UTME results because there are lots of issues we discovered, such as multiple registrations , impersonation and the likes . So , we are still fishing them out.
“ Some persons have been arrested and there are those who are yet to be arrested; we have their records . We will fish them out. However, candidates should expect their results very soon .”

Benjamin said the examination has so far been successful , adding that the board was addressing some of the challenges that came up during the exercise.

In its weekly bulletin , the board said a total of 389 visually -impaired candidates were taking the 2019 UTME, as against 367, who took the exams in 2018.

“This category of UTME candidates will be adequately taken care by the Equal Opportunity Group headed by Prof Peter Okebukola. The board will also provide the necessary support to the physically- challenged candidates to achieve their educational goals . In the 2019 UTME, a total of 398 prison inmates registered for the examination in three towns, ” JAMB added .
