NEWS FLAKES NG gathers that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has completed plans to release the much awaited results of this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME 2019) that was concluded on earlier on Tuesday, April 16.
In a recent statement released on its verified official website [www.jamb.org.ng], the board revealed that a number of malpractices was observed during the exercise thus causing the unusual slight delay in the release of the examination results as against the previous norm of faster release of results almost immediately after a candidate writes the examination.
According to the Board, ”
We are ready and well organized to start releasing the jamb results of merited candidates.
We had scrutinized and carefully watched the conduction of this year’s exam.
We have found a lot of impersonating materials.
About 100,000 candidates came inside hall with scientific calculators, while 500,000 candidates came inside hall with mobile phones.
I am sure that candidates didn’t know that CCTV cameras were mounted inside the exam hall where they can’t imagine.
As of last year conduction, we mounted the CCTV cameras where someone can easy detect it.
So they now used a smart style in cheating inside exam hall.
We also discovered that 300,000 did system malpractices thereby inviting external bodies or machineries to write exam for them.
We detected that when we are checking the candidate’s thumbprint and pictures in the system.
We can boast of 1.2 million candidate’s results out of 1.9 million candidates that registered exam this year ( 2019 ). 600,000 candidates scored above 200 , 300,000 candidates scored above 180 and lastly 300,000 candidates scored below 180.
Those results are already available, we are now maintaining the online result checker portal . In no distant time, candidates will be able to access their results.
Jamb went further to say the condition of those that has fallen victim of the exam.
As for those that are caught in exam malpractice, we are going to have a brief meeting on that, while those cut with scientific calculators, their exams will be rescheduled or deduction of their scores.
Candidates will be updated when the portal is fixed.
They urge the candidates to print their original Jamb result ( coloured ) and online result ( either coloured or black and white ).
Candidates should not forget to upload their o’level results immediately they access their results.
