JAMB directs UTME candidates to check results online
THE Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has directed candidates who have taken the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) to visit the board’s website for their results.
The Head of Media of the Board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, gave the directive at a news conference on Tuesday in Bwari, Abuja.
Benjamin said that the results had been scrutinised and released on its website, www.jamb.org.ng, adding that such candidates were free to visit the Board’s website for their results.
He also explained that the results would be released in batches to enable candidates who have already taken the examination to check them.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that JAMB Registrar, Professor Is’haq Oloyede, recently said that unlike the 2017 exercise, the Board would not release the results of the 2018 examinations immediately until after two or three days.
This, he stated, was not because the Board was incapable of releasing them immediately but that results must undergo review and total scrutiny to avoid multiple cancellations of candidates’ results.
The 2018 UTME began on Friday and is scheduled to finish on Saturday.
