The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that at least 1.3 million of the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results will be released today.
The results are from CBT centres that have been screened for examination malpractices.
According to JAMB Head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, who stated this on Sunday in an interview, the UTME results of Computer-Based Test centres where the CCTV showed malpractices had been cancelled.
The JAMB spokesman said, “We are presently viewing the CCTV to ensure that results are not released in several batches. On Monday, we will release over 1.3 million results. These are the results of the CBT centres that have been screened. We cannot say how many cases of malpractice we have yet, because we are still viewing the CCTV to discover more cases.
Regarding candidates whose bimetric details could not be verified, Benjamin said such candidates would not be allowed to retake the examination, as the biometric verification had already disqualified them.
