Jamb Utme 2017: Thousands Of Candidates Yet To Get Their Results

It is almost fabulous to anyone that two
months after the conduct of the 2017 UTME,
more than 85000 candidates are still
awaiting their results.

The different hitches and various sharp
practices by CBT centres, employed by
JAMB, for the conduct of the UTME marred
the examination that was conducted
between 13th to 20th May. These
necessitated the re-scheduling of no less
than 75000 candidates to re-write the
examination on the first of July.

Worrisome for the candidates at present is
the media silence JAMB has maintained
since JAMB message proclaiming the
successful conduct of the mop up exam on
July 1. For all the candidates who
participated in this mop up exam, they have
no way of knowing when their results will be
released or knowing whether they are not
back on the track that led them into re-
writing the examination in the first place.
It is to be noted that JAMB remained silent
as to the reason why the results were being
withheld for more than a month before
announcing the re-scheduling of examination
for barely two weeks from the time of the
announcement. Candidates who have spent
months preparing for the first UTME are
forced to repeat such feat in less than two
weeks if they are to secure a place in the
tertiary institutions this year.

Those hailing JAMB for its successful
conduct of the UTME should note that the
exam cannot be seen as successful until all
innocent candidates’ results are released. In
one of such congratulatory messages, the
writer commended the JAMB registrar for
rescheduling the exam of the affected
candidates. Everyone must note that re-
scheduling is not in anyway a favour in the
least to these candidates as the candidates
did not choose the erring CBT centres
themselves. JAMB placed everyone in the
centres that it wished.

It should be recalled that the international
standard practice for CBT examination is for
the results of such exam to be released
within 24 hours of the end of the
examination
The question every stakeholder has been
asking with regards to the MOP UP
examination conducted on July 1st across
the nation is:
WHY IS THE RESULT YET TO BE RELEASED,
ALMOST TWO WEEKS AFTER THE EXAM?

and

WHY IS JAMB NOT GIVING REASONS FOR
THE DELAY?
