FG Lauds JAMB for Successful and Seamless Conduct of the 2023 UTME Exam

Federal Government Lauds JAMB for Successful and Seamless Conduct of 2023 UTME Exam

The Federal Government has expressed its satisfaction with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for the seamless and successful conduct of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Malam Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education, gave the commendation on Saturday while monitoring the rescheduled UTME at the Computer Based Test (CBT) centre located in Mambila Barrack’s, Asokoro, Abuja alongside JAMB’s Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede.

Despite some initial challenges, Adamu said he was pleased with the orderly conduct of the exercise and was delighted with what he saw at the centre. He commended the temporary holding room and arrangements made for candidates taking the examination, saying that everything was in order.

Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, disclosed in an interview that approximately 80,000 candidates who were unable to sit for the 2023 UTME at their scheduled time due to no fault of theirs were able to participate in the rescheduled exam across the country. These candidates included those who were verified at their centres but could not sit for the exam, those who could not be biometrically verified, and those with mismatched data, among others.

According to Dr Benjamin, the use of innovative measures in conducting the exam resulted in a significant reduction in the incidence of exam malpractice. He said that the exercise recorded the lowest reported cases of infractions.

When asked about the release of results for the rescheduled UTME, Dr Benjamin explained that the board’s management would analyze the conduct of the exercise before deciding when to release the results. It is worth noting that the Board had already released the results of candidates who had taken part in the exam on its scheduled date.

In total, 1,586,765 candidates indicated their interest in sitting for the 2023 UTME. The successful conduct of the exam has been widely commended and is expected to contribute to the continued improvement of the education sector in Nigeria.
