At least 100 candidates were said to have missed writing the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in Adamawa.
The Adamawa Zonal Coordinator of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Mr. Danladi Aliyu, confirmed the development to Newsmen in an interview on today in Yola.
Aliyu, noted that there has been no official complaint from candidates who hadnt even showed up since the commencement of the examination last Friday.
“Since the examination commenced last Friday, a total of 3,115 candidates sat for the examination in five designated centres in the state.
“Also, according to our records, about 100 candidates did not show up to write the examination,” Aliyu said.
He noted that the examination exercise has been going on well in the five centres of the state with no problem with the network.
Aliyu said that the centres were located in Federal Polytechnic Mubi; Federal College of Education, Yola; American University of Nigeria, Yola; Aliyu Mustapha College Yola and the Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Yola.
He however said the atmosphere at American University of Nigeria centre was not conducive, as candidates were writing the examination under excessive weather condition.
“The excessive hot condition at the centre will likely affect the performance of the candidates,” Aliyu said.
