JAMB result is out, JAMB candidates can check 2021 UTME results below.
Newsone Nigeria reports that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says the result of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) has been released.
This online news platform understands that Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, JAMB Registrar, disclosed this yesterday during a news conference in Enugu.
The JAMB Registrar said he had no reason whatsoever to withhold the results of the UTME.
“The result ought to be out by now, but because I am not at the headquarters and I do not want to approve it while on the field. But as soon as I get to Abuja today (yesterday) all the examinations up to the one being taken today will be approved and released because we have no reason to continue to hold on to it,” he said.
Oloyede said his team was at the Southeast to access what was going on with the conduct of the examinations as well as to visit new University in Ebonyi.
The JAMB Registrar noted that JAMB registered 1,415,501 candidates in the UTME 2021 and 1,122, 095 had taken the examinations so far while 66,111 had yet to take.
Oloyede said the board has some 650 examination centres across the country, out of which, 30 centres have been delisted for performing below standard.
“fifty-three centres are currently under watch while 600 of them performed excellently. It is our wish and desire that the board will continue to ensure that such non performing centres with ulterior motive will not be allowed to participate in the exercise.”
The JAMB Registrar explained that the use of National Identity Number (NIN) as directed by the Federal Government helped to reduce examination malpractice during the examinations.
“We were talking about the bogus 2.2 million candidates, but it has become clearer that more than 500,000 of such number are fake and duplication.
“And we were able to detect this through NIN and now we have realistic number of JAMB candidates,” the registrar said.
The JAMB Registrar frowned at the activities of some elements to sabotage the exercise, but they were all caught due to the system put in place.
