Candidates That Had System Failure And Those That Missed The Examination Will Re-take It - JAMB

Also JAMB Candidates who had system failure during the UTME Examination would be given the opportunity to retake it, once it is proven by the board that their complaints are genuine.

On the issue of students with conflicting results, Prof. Dibu said, “Let me use this opportunity to offer explanation on the issue of the much-publicized two results. The process of our marking involves transformation and other qualitative programming.

In the process of these configurations, we had a little challenge which we quickly corrected and ensured that this never happened in subsequent results.

This challenge was only associated with the candidates that sat for this examination on Saturday, 27, February and some candidates of Monday, 29th February, 2016.”

He also disclosed that out of the 1,546,633 candidates that sat for the 2016 UTME, 145,704 had issues of multiple results which have been resolved by the JAMB board.

He however stated that results of Uromi approved UTME Centre in Edo State, were being withheld as a result of massive malpractice and invasion of the centre by armed hoodlums.

He blamed the technical hitches experienced in some of the centres on the operators of the centers as some of them hired equipment just to pass the accreditation process only to be found wanting on the examination day.

He further stated that reverting to Pencil-Paper Test as directed by the House of Representatives will invariably amount to taking one step forward and two steps backwards.

“Even the physically challenged are taking the CBT examination. One of the blind candidates scored 286, so why should others complain? He queried.

More information on the New date for JAMB UTME 2016 Examination will be announced soon.

This led to my few operation in system before i was logged out without submiting my work.
