JAMB likely to release 2024 UTME results Monday

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has concluded plan to release the results of the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, is to address a press conference in Abuja, on Monday, on the release of the results and other things around it.

However, there are indications that results that would be released on Monday are, perhaps, for the candidates that participated in the UTME in the first few days, while others would be released after “due diligence” is completed.

The board earlier explained that it chose to delay the release of the results by some days because it needed some time to scrutinize the results to ensure the credibility and integrity of the results, ensuring that there’s no questions or any form of unclarity concerning the results particularly as regards the issue of impersonation, mixed biometrics, and other forms of malpractices.

The 2024 UTME exercise which started on Friday 19th April, 2024, is expected to end on Monday, 29th April, 2024.

Over 1.9 million candidates participated in the 2024 UTME in over 700 Computer-Based Test (CBT) centres across the country in the past one week.

Before now, JAMB released results of the UTME a day or two after the examination until few years ago when it realised that some contentious issues often accompany early release of the UTME results.

The board, however, took the decision to take some days to carefully scrutinise the result before release, and also withheld others found wanting.
