The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has assured all the candidates who participated in the 2019’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that the results would be ready from Monday, 29th April, 2019.
The JAMB Board’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dr Fabian Benjamin, disclosed in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, 27th April in Bwari, that the 2019′ UTME Results will be ready from Monday, 29th April, 2019.
Dr. Fabian said that screening of the 2019 UTME results would soon be over and the result will be made available to all the candidates.
“We are still screening the results but hopefully, anytime from next week, we are certain that the JAMB results will be ready,” Benjamin said.
Speaking also on the JAMB board’s readiness to screen results of UTME candidates from 2009 to 2018, Benjamin said this would begin after the release of the 2019 results.
He said this was part of the board’s effort to address the issues of malpractice in the system.
The board had stated that it would only release the 2019 UTME results after undergoing thorough screening to identify and apprehend examination cheats.
The process would identify those involved in multiple registrations through biometric capturing and also address group registration by some elite schools, who end up mixing candidate’s data.
The board said: “Usually, JAMB results are expected to be released within 24 to 48 hours as obtained in previous examinations held in 2017 & 2018. However, the board does not want this to be business as usual.
The board has made it a point of duty to screen all activities at all JAMB accredited centres via CCTV recordings, to ensure that it does not release results of compromised examinations.”
The board, while regretting all inconvenience caused in the process, reaffirmed its commitment to providing equal opportunity to all candidates in order to articulate their aspirations.
The board urges all the candidates to ignore all messages in circulation on how to check the results as they were all products of deceit.
The JAMB 2019 Examination was conducted from April 11 to April 18th and over 1.8 million candidates registered for the examination. (NAN).
