The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of all candidates who sat for the rescheduled mock-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) held yesterday, April 18.
In a statement today, April 19, the JAMB spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin said that with the successful conduct of the mock examination, all the challenges encountered which had led to the rescheduled mock examination had been tackled.
He said that JAMB has now consolidated the software and is ready to give Nigerians the best.
It would be recalled that the mock examination was introduced by the Board to test the preparedness of its facilities as well as give candidates the opportunity to have hands-on experience of the Computer-Based Test (CBT) centres.
JAMB had earlier conducted the mock examination on Thursday, March 30, 2023, but some candidates could not sit for the exercise on account of some technical challenges occasioned by some new features being trialled by the Board.
It was these set of candidates, who sat the rescheduled examination in 387 centres across the country on Tuesday, April 18.
Benjamin said that the prompt release of results for the mock examination would not be replicated during the forthcoming UTME scheduled to commence from April 25, 2023.
The JAMB spokesman said that for the main UTME, the results would be released holistically, saying that the results of the entire eight-day exercise would be collated before they would be released to candidates.
“It is to be noted that the Board embarked on the screening of results to ensure that any UTME results obtained by any candidate is not a product of infractions and other unwholesome practices.
“This measure ensures that the Board would not have to release any particular result and then recall same on account of established case of malpractice.
“In the same vein, assessing the entire results enables the Board to obtain the overall standard deviation and the mean of the performance of all the candidates who sat the examination.
“By doing this, the Board is able to aggregate the general performance of all candidates who sat the examination and factor same into the national education planning template.”
