The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Is-haq Oloyede, has said that the results of 1,048,914 out of the 1,648,429 candidates writing the ongoing UTME, have been released.
He said that in addition to the 1,048,914 results that have been released, over 30,406 results are also ready for upload before midnight today.
“As at today, 1,648, 429 are taking our examination and we have released the result of 1,048,914. That is the result we have released up till yesterday.
“On the first day, we released the results of Sunday because anything you call CBT, the results are ready, but for environmental reasons, we do not release the results immediately.
“That is to ensure we go through the CCTV camera to see whether there are report of malpractice and prevent the situation whereby those who do not pass become agitated at the CBT centres.
“We have released the results of Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and we are going to release today’s result before 12 midnight. This morning, the results of 30,046 will be release,” Oloyede said.
When asked about the performances of candidates results so far, he said, “the candidates have not done badly from the results released so far. As soon as the last person finished writing the last paper today, we will upload additional over 30,406 results before 12 midnight today.”
He however explained, “we have now been able to catch those people who registered two people with the same names. The impersonator and the one being impersonated went in collaboration with the CBT centres after screening them.”
