JAMB Releases 15,490 More Withheld UTME Results

Latest: JAMB Releases 15,490 More Withheld UTME Results

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has further cleared and released the results of 15,490 candidates withheld during the just concluded 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

I’ve Never Collected Bribe – JAMB Registrar

Dr Fabian Benjamin, Spokesman of the Board, in a statement on Monday in Abuja said JAMB had withheld some results, during the release of the 2019 UTME result on Saturday, 11th May, 2019, to further probe the identity and involvement of some candidates who were suspected of being involved in one examination infraction or another.

He explained that the release followed the expert review of the cases of this category of candidates who were requested to upload certain credentials for scrutiny. He added that at the conclusion of the review exercise, this category of candidates were further classified into five groups as follows; those who have sufficiently proved their innocence; those with inconclusive evidence of culpability and were given the benefit of the doubt because of the guiding principles of the Board that it is better for many criminals to go free than to punish one innocent candidate.

 “Therefore, the results of categories (i)and (ii) were part of the 15,490  released on Saturday, 8th June 2019. They are to send RESULT to 55019 for their result.

“Those whose upload of evidence necessitated further interrogation.  They have been notified and invited (through a phone call, their profile, text message and email) to designated centres across the country for further clarification of the evidence against them.

“It is in their interest to attend otherwise the evidence will be taken as conclusive.

“Those whose culpability has been firmly established thus necessitating the cancellation of their results. A total of additional 321 results were therefore conclusively cancelled and the candidates are being notified.

“Those who did not heed the advice to upload evidence of their identity vis-a-vis the other impersonators and there are incontrovertible evidence of their culpability.  They also have their results cancelled along with category (iv) above. Furthermore, four additional CBT centres were found culpable and were also delisted,” JAMB said.

Earlier: JAMB Releases 4,536 Withheld UTME Results

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released 4,536 results of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination that were withheld for various irregularities such as multiple identities of candidates and other infractions. According to JAMB, the release of the 4,536 results out of a total the 4,760 that were initially withheld followed the decision of a committee set up to examine the multiple facial identities.

The board revealed that the facial match recognition was carried out by its specialised software and Information Technology experts

The board equally revealed that the results of 231 candidates who sat for the examination at one of its centres, the Nigerian Navy Secondary School, Abeokuta, Ogun State have been released, however, the centre has been suspended for acts not acceptable by the board.

Out of the remaining 224 results which are still being withheld, the board has directed that the results of 127 candidates be subjected to further physical examination while the results of 97 candidates established to have involved in infractions remain withheld.

“Those to be subjected to further physical examination will be contacted. They must appear before an inspection team to clarify other likely areas of multiplicity. The 127 have been grouped in zones for convenience and easy accessibility.” Dr Fabian stated.

The candidates in South West would converge in Lagos at the West African Examination Council (WAEC) office, Yaba, Lagos, while those from Ibadan and Ekiti respectively are to converge at the JAMB office in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Those in the South East Zone are to converge in Owerri, Imo State, while those in the North East would be screened in Gombe JAMB Office, the North West would be held in Kaduna. Some candidates from North Central states such as Kwara would converge in Ilorin, while those from Plateau, Nasarawa and the Federal Capital Territory Abuja would converge at JAMB National Headquarters, Bwari, Abuja.

Candidates whose results were initially withheld are hereby advised to proceed to check their results.
