JAMB Releases 2023 UTME Results | How to Check from your phone now?
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that it will commence the release of results of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) from Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
This was contained in the minutes of a meeting held at the end of an emergency management meeting held over the weekend in Abuja.
The minutes of the meeting was, however, made available to journalists on Monday by JAMB spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin.
JAMB noted that the delay in the release of results was due to the fact that it wanted to ensure that all necessary screenings were concluded.
The Board would be releasing the results of candidates, who have taken the examination so far on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023.
“The Board had delayed the release to ensure that all necessary screening are concluded besides ensuring that the mean and standard deviation are reasonably obtained before releasing these results.
“As candidates check their results on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023, those who sat the examination but had challenges without being aware of such, would not see their results but would instead see their notification for rescheduled examination,” it said.
Similarly, the examination body also noted that three categories of candidates who missed their examinations had been rescheduled for mop-up examinations.
“All candidates, who could not sit the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time owing to no fault of theirs, would be rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, 6th May, 2023,” it stated.
The examination body went on: “It is equally noteworthy that the Board had informed Nigerians that it would be using some novel innovative methods in conducting the exercise with the aim of completely arresting incidence of examination infractions.”
“This has been largely achieved as the exercise recorded the lowest reported cases of infractions, but with equally emerging challenges on account of human negligence, which led to some candidates not being able to sit for the examination on the first day. This notwithstanding, out of the 1,586,765 candidates that indicated interest in sitting for the examination, only 80,166 are now outstanding.
“As part of the decisions reached at the end of an emergency management meeting held on April 30, the Board has fixed May 6 for all categories of candidates, who have not sat for their examination.”
