JAMB 2023: 80,000 Candidates Sit for Rescheduled UTME

JAMB 2023: 80,000 Candidates Sit for Rescheduled UTME

On Saturday, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, expressed his satisfaction with the rescheduled 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, alongside the registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Ishaq Oloyede. The two monitored the exam at the Computer Based Test Centre located in Mambilla Barracks, Asokoro, Abuja, and were pleased with the smooth conduct of the exercise. Adamu was particularly impressed with the temporary holding room for candidates and the arrangement of the examination.

JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, who was also present at the venue, revealed in an interview with journalists that approximately 80,000 candidates, who could not sit for the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time owing to no fault of theirs, sat for the rescheduled UTME across the country. The affected candidates included those who were verified at their centres but could not sit the examination, those who could not be biometrically verified, and those with mismatched data, among others.

Dr Benjamin further stated that the deployment of innovations in the conduct of the exam paid off bountifully, as the exercise recorded the lowest reported cases of infractions. He also highlighted that the issue of examination malpractice was reduced to almost zero levels in this year’s UTME.

As for the release of the results of the rescheduled UTME, Benjamin stated that the board’s management will analyze the conduct of the exercise after its conclusion before it will make a decision on that. However, on Tuesday, JAMB had released the results of candidates who had earlier taken part in the exam, which commenced on April 25, 2023. A total of 1,586,765 candidates registered for the 2023 UTME. Overall, the rescheduled UTME was conducted smoothly, with measures in place to ensure the integrity of the exam.
