JAMB To Release 2023/2024 UTME Results Today
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the results of candidates who sat for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will be released on Tuesday, May 2, 2023. In a statement issued by the Board’s Head Public Affairs and Protocol in Abuja, the Board advised candidates who may not see their results not to worry, as they may have been rescheduled to retake the exam due to certain challenges they may not have been aware of.
The Board explained that it had delayed the release of the results to ensure that all necessary screenings were concluded, and that the mean and standard deviation were reasonably obtained before releasing the results. As candidates check their results on Tuesday, May 2, 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 a rescheduled examination.
Therefore, all candidates who sat the examination are urged to check their results on or before Thursday, May 8, 2023. The Board further disclosed that candidates who could not sit for the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time due to no fault of theirs, would be rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, May 6, 2023. These candidates include those who were verified at their centres but could not sit for the examination, those who could not be biometrically verified, those with mismatched data, candidates who had been rescheduled to retake their examination on Thursday, April 27, 2023, but received their notification late on Thursday night, and candidates in centres with reduced capacity.
In addition, all candidates who were scheduled to sit the 2023 UTME at the Beautiful Beginning CBT Centre, Apo, Abuja, but missed the examination for whatever reason, have been rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, May 6, 2023. The rescheduling of all the candidates who missed the examination is as a result of the mistake made in the address of the centre, which had led to some candidates missing their examination. The name of the centre, Beautiful Beginning CBT Centre, Apo, Abuja, featured “Gwagwalada” rather than “Apo”, which misled the candidates. As a responsible organisation, the Board has rescheduled all candidates posted to the centre, who could not sit their examination on account of the wrong address or any other reason, to ensure that no candidate misses the examination.
The Board also informed Nigerians that it would be using some novel innovative methods in conducting the exercise with the aim of completely arresting incidences of examination infractions. The exercise recorded the lowest reported cases of infractions but with emerging challenges on account of human negligence which led to some candidates not being able to sit the examination on the first day. Out of the 1,586,765 candidates that indicated an interest in sitting the examination, only 80,166 are now outstanding.
