JAMB Explains Delay in Result Release

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has said it could not release results of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Monday as earlier promised. According to its spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, the results will be released as soon as reports from the 687 Computer Based Test centres used for the conduct of the examination are reviewed.

The board said the review of reports from these centres will be concluded on Monday or Tuesday. JAMB spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said this in an interview with our reporter on Monday in Abuja.

He attributed the delay in releasing the results to fraudulent practices of some candidates who sat for the examination.

According to him, some candidates have abused some of the innovations introduced by the board leaving it to properly screen the UTME results to ensure that the board does not release the results of a compromised examination.

He said: “We are comparing reports from the field and as soon as we finish either today or tomorrow, we will commence the process of releasing the results.

“We are collecting reports from 687 centres. The results will be released as soon as we finish what we are doing". Benjamin also said the board will investigate all issues of biometric failure during the conduct of the examination.
