Expressing delight over what the regulatory agency described as the ‘the smooth conduct of the examination’, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) the candidates wrote recently.

ConsumerConnect reports Fabian Benjamin, Spokesman of JAMB, who announced the release of the UTME results in a statement in Abuja, FCT, Friday, June 25, said the Board was happy over the smooth conduct of the examination.

Benjamin explained that the use of the National Identification Number (NIN) was helpful in curbing malpractices during the exercise.

The statement noted: “The Board notes with satisfaction that the utilisation of NIN (National Identification Number) has helped in curbing examination malpractices as the 2021 UTME has recorded the least incidence of irregularities since the inception of the CBT examinations in Nigeria.

JAMB stated: “Nevertheless, the Board would still review all the CCTV footages and other technical gadgets for detection of possible examination misconducts.”

Some candidate’s results, were, however, not released with the examination body noting that those results are being investigated.

JAMB warned: “In addition, the Board would not hesitate to withdraw the results of any candidate subsequently found to have committed any form of examination misconduct.”
