JAMB To Release UTME 2023 Results May 2
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the results of candidates who have sat for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, will be released on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
Naijanewshub.com.ng gathered that Fabian Benjamin, the Head of Protocol and Public Affairs, JAMB, in a statement issued on Monday, urged candidates to check their results.
He, however, explained that those who sat the examination but had challenges without being aware of such, would not see their results but instead see their notification for rescheduled examination.
The statement reads: “JAMB would be releasing the results of candidates, who have taken the examination so far on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023.
“The Board had delayed the release to ensure that all necessary screening are concluded besides ensuring that the mean and standard deviation are reasonably obtained before releasing these results.
“As candidates check their results on Tuesday, 2nd May, 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 rescheduled examination.
“Consequently, all candidates who sat the examination are urged to check their results on or before Thursday, 8th May 2023.”
“As part of the decisions reached at the end of an emergency management meeting held on Sunday, 30th April, 2023, the Board has fixed Saturday, 6th May, 2023, for all categories of candidates who have not sat their examination, as listed below, to take their examination.
“These are candidates, who were registered for the 2023 UTME without manifesting any biometric difficulty but who could not be verified on the day of the examination.
“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, 6th May, 2023.
“The rescheduling of all the candidates, who missed the examination is a result of the mistake made in the address of the centre, which had led to some candidates missing their examination.
“As a responsible organisation, the Board would not abdicate its responsibilities and has consequently, 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”.
JAMB said other candidates that will retake the examination include candidates who rescheduled to take the examination on thursday, 27th april, 2023, but who could not receive the notification, candidates in centres with reduced capacity and candidates with data mismatch.
