JAMB is out.Go check yours

The Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Board (JAMB) has
released the 2013 Unified
Tertiary Matriculation
Examination (UTME) results. The
board, however, withheld 12,110 results for possible disciplinary
action. The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Dibu
Ojerinde, announced this at a
news conference on the release
of the results in Bwari, FCT,
today Friday May 3rd. The registrar said after
thorough processing of answer
scripts of the candidates who
sat for the examination, the
board discovered some forms of
malpractice perpetuated during the conduct of the examination. “However, the results of 68,309
candidates from various centres
are undergoing further
screening to ascertain the
culpability of 12,110 candidates’
results. A total of 1,629,102 candidates
applied to sit for the Paper
Pencil Test (PPT), while 15,008
candidates applied for the Dual
Based Test, bringing the number
of candidates to 1,644,110. “The general performance of
candidates in this year’s
examination shows remarkable
improvement compared with last
year. “Ten candidates scored 300
marks and above, while 127,017
candidates scored between
1-159 marks.
“About 40,692 candidates’
results were invalid due to either multiple shading or no
shading at all. After processing
all the results, the board also
discovered that about 47,974
candidates were absent.“
The registrar assured the candidates that their results
could be accessed on the JAMB
using their registration numbers. He said about 40 centres would
be screened to ascertain their
culpability and warned the public
against Internet fraudsters. “Information reaching JAMB
shows Internet fraudsters are
already telling candidates that
their results could be upgraded
in one form or the other. This is
pure deceit, the public and candidates are hereby advised
to disregard these fraudsters
since they do not have access to
our data. “Let me once again state that
candidates are allowed to
change their choices of
institutions and courses once
only, this change has to be
effected within two weeks from today. Ojerinde said the Computer
Based Test (CBT) is scheduled to
take place from May 18 to June
1 and appealed to candidates to
reprint their e-registration slips
afresh to further ascertain their CBT centres.
