JAMB: Why UTME Results Of Some Candidates Will Not Be Released

Barley two days after the release of 2022 UTME results, the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has revealed some results may not be issued.

JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Fabian Benjamin in an interview with journalists on Monday enumerated reasons why a candidate’s result could be withheld.

Benjamin cited malpractice, misconduct, breach of procedural processes, and incomplete review of the centre as some of the reasons results will not be released.

Benjamin said: “We have released results for this batch. There are many factors that can lead to a result being withheld. It could be as a result of examination malpractice, the candidate’s inability to conduct himself or herself properly, a breach in procedural process or a review of the centre”.

JAMB had earlier in a statement vowed to withhold the results of candidates found guilty of malpractices.

Part of the statement read: “About 1.4 million candidates have so far taken the examination across the nation, with some examination towns and centres completing their own allotted number of candidates for the year while the results of sessions already taken will be released to the respective candidates”.

“However, the release of these results is with a caveat that after previewing the Closed Circuit Television footage of the conduct of the examination, the result of any candidate found wanting would be withdrawn if it had been released or withheld if not yet released.”
