Breaking News: JAMB Reschedules 2023 UTME for Candidates Who Miss Examination
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that it has rescheduled the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for candidates who could not take the exam on the first day, April 25, 2023, due to technical difficulties. In a statement released by the Board’s Spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, JAMB stated that all affected candidates would be rescheduled to take the examination at a later date.
The statement further revealed that candidates who missed the exam due to technical reasons should print a new examination notification on Wednesday, April 26, 2023, to know their new scheduled session. The board also noted that about 100 out of the 708 centres participating in the examination across the country experienced technical challenges, which prevented their allotted candidates from taking the examination.
JAMB expressed its commitment to providing world-class assessment in line with global best practices to deliver quality assessment, and regretted any inconvenience experienced by candidates and their parents. The statement further explained that the technical challenges encountered were on account of some novel features deployed by the Board to safeguard the sanctity of the examination by checkmating all incidences of examination misconduct being perpetrated and perpetuated by vested interests.
The Board reassured Nigerians that no candidate would be denied the right to take the examination, as candidates experiencing any challenges would be rescheduled to take the examination on the next available date and space. JAMB emphasized that its technical team is working round the clock to ensure that the next day’s exercise is devoid of any hitches.
