The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has explained why the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results have yet to be released.
Prof Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar, stated that the examination body had yet to disclose results owing to internal review. He added that the body would not release results until it received reports of examination malpractices and that just 60% of the results were received after the exams.
“We have no reason not to reveal the results,” Oloyede said, “but we are conducting an internal review.” We don’t want to end up in a position where you release some results and then start withdrawing others; therefore, we’ve urged individuals to submit reports, particularly of malpractices.
“And for the first day after the result was ready, we now scrutinized and saw that about 40 percent of the report were not in. So, why release 60 percent and create confusion? We have insisted that this year, we will not release jamb results until we have all the reports of examination malpractices. The results are ready but we believe we need to have all the reports; we have about 70 percent of reports now updated but we want 100 percent.
For the 2022 exam, over 1.7 million candidates applied. Oloyede also stated that as the exercise progressed, it had no major problems. It did, however, emphasize its zero-tolerance policy for exam irregularities and advised applicants to conduct themselves professionally and adhere to the guidelines.
Some CBT center operators have sought the government for financial assistance, despite the fact that the examination was usually successful.
Banjo Adekunle, the administrator of the Bafuto Institute of Management and Information Technology, described the rise in diesel prices as a major concern.
Mrs. Esther Oriyomi, of the Classic International CBT center, stated that the body has greatly improved in the assessment process. She stated that network and malpractice issues had decreased.
