JAMB Seizes 80,889 UTME results over exam malpractices

Accordingto him, “So far we have released the results of 1,606,901 leaving us with 80,889, out of this 80,889 we have deliberately withheld 76,923 because of alleged malpractices in the centres where the examinations were held. “The remaining have issues like those ‎whose thumbs or biometrics couldn’t be verified and would not be allowed to do the examination because it would require further investigation.

As of today 640 candidates could not do biometrics. “We have investigated why and found various reasons. Some are d‎ue to fraudsters, some candidates did registration in unacredited centres. “We are not saying all the 80,889 committed alleged infraction , in fact, those who committed the infraction would be less than 10 percent but when something happens in a centre pending the result of investigation, the best thing is to withhold the results.

“We released the results within 24 hours to make a point, if we have wanted we could have allowed candidates to get their results immediately but if we had delayed, people would have said we couldn’t deliver.
