JAMB also plans to conduct a mop-up exam for three categories of candidates who could not sit for the exam within their scheduled time.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it'll begin to release the results of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
The exam body made this known in the minutes of its emergency management meeting over the weekend.
In the minutes, the board said the delay in the release of results was to ensure that all necessary screenings were concluded.
“The Board would be releasing the results of candidates, who have taken the examination so far on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023. The Board had delayed the release to ensure that all necessary screening are concluded besides ensuring that the mean and standard deviation are reasonably obtained before releasing these results.
“As candidates check their results on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023, those who sat the examination but had challenges without being aware of such, would not see their results but would instead see their notification for rescheduled examination,” the minute read.
The exam body also plans to conduct a mop-up exam for three categories of candidates who could not sit for the exam within their scheduled time.
“All candidates who could not sit the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time owing to no fault of theirs would be rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, May 6, 2023.
“Candidates under these categories are principally those who were verified at their centers but could not sit the examination; those who could not be biometrically verified; and those with mismatched data,” JAMB said.
The 2023 UTME, which commenced on Tuesday, April 25, 2023, will end on Tuesday, May 2, 2023. About 1.6 million candidates sat for the exam.
