The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that it will release the results of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
According to reports, the decision was made during an emergency management meeting held in Abuja over the weekend.
JAMB explained that the delay in releasing the results was due to the need to carry out necessary screenings to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the results.
“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.
Additionally, the board has scheduled mop-up examinations for three categories of candidates who missed their original exams.
“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.”
