The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, says it has released the results of 1,502,978 candidates who sat for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, TOPNAIJA.NG can confirm.
The board disclosed this in a statement signed by its Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin in Abuja on Tuesday.
According to the statement, the board released the results after viewing all CCTV footage during the conduct of the examination and also after considering reports from its supervisors who monitored the exercise.
The board stated that a total of 1,652,825 candidates registered for the 2018 examination, adding that the results of 112,331 candidates were yet to be released.
It noted that “out of the number yet to be released, 350 are results of blind candidates which would be released soon, while 111,981 results were being withheld for further screening.”
The board stated that the figure excluded foreign candidates whose examination was scheduled for April.
NAN reports that the 2018 UTME commenced on March 9 and ended on March 19.
The board said that unlike the 2017 exercise, release of results would not be immediate, adding that JAMB would scrutinise candidates’ results before releasing them to avoid multiple cancellations later.
