The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said on Sunday the over 1.8 million candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination would be able to check their results in their mobile phones and should not “allow any Computer-Based Test centre to exploit them.”
The 2019 UTME held between April 11 and April 17 in 698 CBT centres nationwide with technical issues and faulty computers slowing down the exercise in some centres as reported in Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, particularly.
He said, “We are working round the clock to ensure the release of UTME results. Most likely, it will be at the upper week. We will use this week to conclude on screening of the results.
“So, candidates should disregard the processes of checking results being peddled around presently. We also did not deduct 100 marks for examination malpractices. If any candidate is found to have indulged in malpractices, such results will be cancelled, not by deduction of marks.”
He stressed the need for candidates to shun reports concerning results, saying, “I repeat that candidates will check their examination results from their phones; not from any cyber café. But the full process will be announced to the candidates as soon as the results are released.”
