Citing irregularities, JAMB reschedules UTME for over 24,000 candidates

AMB gives June 22 as new date for supplementary UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says 24,535 candidates who sat for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) have been rescheduled to retake the examination.

The decision according to the board was prompted by substantial non-compliance with the Board’s standards in the affected candidates examination centres.

A statement on Sunday signed by Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s spokesman, said the Board has also released additional 3,921 withheld results.

The statement reads “The Board has painstakingly analysed the process and conduct of the 2024 UTME in some centres where there are strong proofs of substantial non-compliance with the Board’s standards.

” Consequently, 24,535 candidates have been rescheduled to retake the examination in their chosen Examination Towns on Saturday, June 22, 2024.

” Meanwhile, 3,921 outstanding 2024 UTME results that had been cleared have now been released.

” Therefore, concerned candidates are urged to check their results from Saturday,1st June,2024 by sending RESULT to 55019 or 66019 to ascertain their status as those cleared would have their results while those rescheduled would be told that they had been rescheduled.”.

“The rescheduled candidates are to print their supplementary Examination Notification Slip from Tuesday, 4th June, 2024 to ascertain their designated examination centres.
” This release brings the total results released to 1,883,350.

“The rescheduled examination, which is taking place on Saturday, 22nd June,2024, two weeks from now, is to give affected candidates adequate time to prepare for the exercise. This notice does not concern candidates whose results have been released.

” Candidates with prima facie case(s) of examination misconduct, would be further interrogated to establish their culpability after which appropriate measures would be taken on them and announced.”
