Finally JAMB Cancels 59,698 UTME Results

JAMB Cancels Results of Some 2017 UTME Candidates.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has finally cancelled the results of 59,698 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates over examination malpractices.

According to the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, who made this known on Wednesday in Abuja at a news conference at the end of an enlarged meeting with external examiners and other stakeholders in the conduct of the 2017 UTME, the cancellation was inevitable.

He said 1,386 candidates have their results cancelled over examination malpractice; 57,646 results were also affected as a result of centres-induced malpractices while the results of 666 candidates were cancelled due to multiple examinations.

The cancelled results were fewer than the 76,923 initially withheld by the examination body when the results of the 2017 UTME were announced on 31 May.

Oloyede had said the final figure of annulled results would be announced after a thorough investigation.

The JAMB boss lamented the widespread examination malpractices across the country aided by parents, teachers and Computer Based Aptitude Test (CBT) centres.
