JAMB Latest News: ‘Anticipated’ UTME 2019 Results Out?
The question on the lips of most Nigerian students is if the results of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is out.
Naija News recalls that the Board conducted the 2019 UTME between April 11 and 18, with massive malpractice recorded during the UTME, a situation which JAMB officials regretted.
