It has been nearly a week since the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) began but no results have been released yet.
The Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Ishaq Oloyede has given reasons for the delay.
He provided the hint in Abuja on Tuesday while speaking at the meeting between officials of the JAMB, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and Registrars of Corps Producing Institutions in Nigeria.
Oloyede hinged the delay in the release of the recently taken exams on checking for examination malpractices.
“We have no reason not to release the result but we are also doing some internal appraisal. We don’t want a situation where we release result we will still withdraw some.
In his words, “We have asked people to submit reports particularly of malpractices and when we scrutinised after the first day, we noticed that about 40 per cent of the report were not in, we concluded that there is no need releasing the result and creating confusion.
“We had insisted that we will not release result this year until we have all the reports of examination malpractices. The issue of releasing result and cancelling it will be very few this year rather than the large number we had previously. We already have about 70 per cent of the reports updated but we want it 100 per cent,” he said.
EduCeleb.com earlier reported that he warned Corps Producing Institutions to stop mobilising part-time programme graduates for the mandatory one-year national service.
He said over a million admissions were illegally given to candidates outside the official channel provided by JAMB between 2017 and 2020.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
