Reactions have continued to trail the reports of the release of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that was earlier conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
This is as the examination board says it is set to release the much-awaited UTME results on Saturday, May 11.
Naija News reports that the news of the release of the result was disclosed on Friday, May 10 by Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the Registrar of JAMB.
“We had a meeting on Friday. And so, we are releasing our results tomorrow,” Oloyede said on Friday, affirming that the results would be released on Saturday.
This online news platform 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.
“In the course of our biometric examination, over 100 centres are discovered to be involved in acts, not in tandem with JAMB rules and have been banned from participating in examinations,” the JAMB Head of Media and Information, Fabian Benjamin had said.
Apparently displeased with the indecisions of the examination board on whether to release the results or still withhold it, Nigerians have taken to the internet to express their reactions over the delay in the results.
As some lamented that the examination board is “unserious with the academic lives” of those who partook in the examinations, some are also of the opinion that the board should consult the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to learn how to postpone examinations.
Some who reacted also said that the 2019 UTME examination is the worst ever in the history of JAMB while some opined that the board should learn from it sister examination boards on how to effectively conduct examinations.
Below are some of the reactions as captured by Naija News; as all fingers are still crossed, awaiting the release of the results today.
