UTME 2019: JAMB Releases 3,736 Withheld Results

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results of 3736 candidates after physical verification by the candidates.

The JAMB Head of Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Wednesday said the board would identify and sanction any candidate who attempted to falsify UTME.

He said, “It may be recalled that during the release of the 2019 UTME results on Saturday, 11th May 2019, the Board had explained among others that; one, the post-examination discovery of serious infractions may lead to the withdrawal of any released result.

“Two, a number of candidates’ results were withheld for further verification and anyone not deeply implicated would have his or her result processed.

“There were, however, some that needed further direct interaction and interview to establish clearly whether they were culpable or not. Candidates in this category were invited to appear in eight centres across the country.

“Consequently, 3,736 candidates who were found to be either free of any blame or entitled to the benefit of the doubt, have their results processed for release. The 3,736 results are now released.”
