The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB,  announced on Monday that it will begin publishing the results of the Uniform College Admissions Council on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
This is the minutes of the meeting held at the end of the emergency management meeting held over the weekend in Abuja.

In the minutes provided to our reporters on Monday morning, the board noted that the delay in releasing the results was because it wanted to ensure that all the necessary tests were completed.

“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,” it said.

Similarly, the examination body also noted that three categories of candidates who missed their examinations had been rescheduled for mop-up examinations.

“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, 6th May, 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,”

According to the Punch report, JAMB rescheduled the conduct of the 2023 UTME from Tuesday, April 25, 2023, to Tuesday, May 2, 2023.

The board had informed Nigerians that it would be using some novel innovative methods in conducting the exercise with the aim of completely arresting incidences of examination infractions.

“This has been largely achieved as the exercise recorded the lowest reported cases of infractions but with equally emerging challenges on account of human negligence which led to some candidates not being able to sit the examination on the first day. This notwithstanding, out of the 1,586,765 candidates that indicated an interest in sitting the examination, only 80,166 are now outstanding.

“On the first day of the 2023 UTME, a number of candidates in some centers could not sit the examination as well as in some centers in subsequent days due to diverse reasons. Though a reasonable number of them have been rescheduled and have taken the examination, some are yet to take their examination.

“As part of the decisions reached at the end of an emergency management meeting held on Sunday, 31st April 2023, the Board has fixed Saturday, 6th May 2023, for all categories of candidates who have not sat their examination, as listed below, to take their examination,” the board said.
