We are still screening 111,981 withheld UTME results –JAMB
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said on Monday that 111,981 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination results withheld by the board were still undergoing screening.
The JAMB Head of Public Affairs, Dr Fabian Benjamin, stated this in a brief interview with our correspondent, noting that the board would communicate its findings at the appropriate time.
JAMB in a statement last Tuesday had said that the results of 111,981 candidates who sat for the 2018 UTME were withheld for “further screening” while it had released 1,502,978 results.
“After viewing all CCTV footages during the conduct of the 2018 UTME and considering reports from our supervisors, monitors and other independent Nigerians, JAMB has released the results of 1,502,978 candidates. Also, 112,331 results have yet to be released out of which 350 are the results of visually impaired candidates which will be released soon and 111,981 results withheld for further screening. The figure above excludes foreign candidates whose examination will be conducted in April,” the release had said.
On Monday, Benjamin told our correspondent that the about 112,000 UTME results remained withheld as further screening was still ongoing.
