JAMB Fixes 1st July for 62,140 Candidates to Rewrite 2017 UTME

The joint admission and matriculation board Jamb has fixed 1st July for 62,140 Candidates to Rewrite 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB
JAMB registrar Professor Ishaq Oloyede at a press briefing after the board’s management meeting in Abuja has disclose that about 62,140 candidates with Issues like Biometric verification will rewrite the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The 62,140 cancelled results include 57,646 candidates in centres-induced malpractice, 3,811 late registration, and 683 candidates who had biometric challenges.

He also explained that the rescheduled examination was for candidates of centres with mass malpractice, but the candidates were deemed innocent.

48 centres have therefore been banned from conducting any future JAMB exam, as a result of gross technical deficiencies, extortion from candidates, organised examination malpractice and other damaging infractions, as concluded by JAMB.

24 other centres were suspended from next year’s JAMB for not meeting expectations required for the success of the exam in their centres.

We believe the candidates to re-write their exams will be duly notified via email, and may be required to reprint their JAMB Exam Slip in due time.

Congrats to all those who now have their results, as we await the 2017/2018 Admission Screening Process.
