The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has said that the over 1.8 million candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination would be able to check their results in their mobile phones and should not “allow any Computer-Based Test centre to exploit them.”
The board added that the examination results were, however, still undergoing screening for malpractices and would be released any time “next week.”
The 2019 UTME held between April 11 and April 17 in 698 CBT centres nationwide with technical issues and faulty computers slowing down the exercise in some centres as reported in Lagos and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, particularly.
The JAMB Head of Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Sunday, said the board has designed a process, which would be announced shortly, to enable candidates to access their results through their mobile phones, without having to go through a CBT centre or a cyber cafe. He stressed the need for candidates to shun reports concerning results.
