The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Thursday revealed conditions to be satisfied by some candidates before they can be admitted into the tertiary institution of their choice.
The exam body said during its 2022 policy meeting held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja that though it allowed some candidates to register for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) with an awaiting result, they will not be offered admission unless they present their O-level results on the board’s portal ahead of enlistment.
Speaking at the event, JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede said only 378,639 of the 1,761,338 who wrote the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations scored 200 and above.
This is as Oloyode mentioned that an Ekiti State indigene attained the highest score during the 2022 UTME examinations conducted by the board.
While giving further statistics of the 2022 examination, Oloyede noted that 378,639 scored above 200; a total of 520,596 candidates scored 190 and above; 704,991 scored 180 and above; 934,103 scored 170 and above; 1,192, 057 scored 160 and above.
“JAMB allowed awaiting results candidates to register and sit for the 2022 UTME. These candidates can’t be considered for admission on awaiting result status. They must present their O’level results on the board’s portal before the commencement of admissions”, Oloyede said.
