JUST IN: JAMB releases results of 80,000 candidates who sat for rescheduled 2023 UTME (See How To Check)
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of the 80,000 candidates who participated in the mop-up Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination on Saturday, May 6, 2023.
JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, disclosed on Monday, May 8, 2023.
Recall that JAMB following an emergency board meeting held in Abuja on May 1, 2023, arranged a mop-up UTME for candidates who missed the chance to sit the examinations between the period scheduled by the board owing to “no faults of their own.”
The examination body in the minutes of the meeting cited three categories of candidates namely the candidates, “who were verified at their centres but could not sit the examination; those who could not be biometrically verified, and those with mismatched data,” the board stated.
“Results of mop-up UTME held on Saturday, May 6, 2023, released,” said Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB spokesperson.
A total of 1,586,765 candidates registered for this year’s UTME.
The exam board released the results of the UTME — between April 25 and May 3 — last Tuesday.
