The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Tuesday night explained why candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examinations (UTME) are yet to see their results.
According to JAMB, the delay was to ensure that no candidate involved in any form of examination malpractice would go unpunished.
JAMB gave the explanation in tweets posted on its Twitter account.
It read: “JAMB wishes to refute claims being credited to it on the release of the 2019 UTME. Candidates are advised that the results of the 2019 UTME would be released shortly.
“Results of the 2019 UTME are being delayed as the Board seeks to ensure that NO candidate involved in any form of examination malpractice is allowed to go unpunished.
“Candidates are, by this, advised to guard their profile code and registration details jealously as unscrupulous individuals are on the prowl to dupe unsuspecting candidates.
“The Board counsels all candidates to disregard messages and calls from any source claiming to have access to the Board’s classified information. Any information would be passed across via media outlets or the Board’s website http://www.jamb.gov.ng
Candidates are anxiously waiting to know how they performed.
Once the results are out, JAMB will send the results to candidates email and mobile phones.
