JAMB likewise plans to lead a mop-up test for three classes of candidates who couldn’t sit for the test inside their planned time.
The results of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), will begin to be released on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
In the minutes of its weekend emergency management meeting, the exam body made this clear.
In the minutes, the board said the defer in the arrival of results was to guarantee that all essential screenings were closed.
“The Board would be releasing the results of candidates, who have taken the examination so far on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023. The Board had delayed the release to ensure that all necessary screening are concluded besides ensuring that the mean and standard deviation are reasonably obtained before releasing these results.
The minute stated that “as candidates check their results on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, those who sat the examination but had challenges without being aware of such, would not see their results but would instead see their notification for rescheduled examination.”.” This was the statement that was included in the document.
Additionally, the exam body intends to hold a make-up exam for three groups of candidates who were unable to take the test on time: “All candidates, who could not sit the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time owing to no fault of theirs, would be rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, May 6, 2023.”
“All candidates, who could not sit the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time owing to no fault of theirs, would be rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, 6th May, 2023.
“Candidates under these categories are principally those who were verified at their centres but could not sit the examination; those who could not be biometrically verified, and those with mismatched data,” JAMB said.
Beginning on Tuesday, April 25, 2023, the 2023 UTME will end on Tuesday, May 2, 2023. The examination was taken by about 1.6 million people.
