Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has given reasons why some results of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination may not be released.
Head, Public Affairs and Protocol in JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, listed reasons that could lead to a candidate’s result being withheld.
Among the reasons stated by Benjamin are malpractice, misconduct, breach of procedural processes, and incomplete review of centre.
He also urged candidates to check their results properly.
Benjamin said, “We have released results for this batch. There are many factors that can lead to a result being withheld. It could be as a result of examination malpractice, the candidate’s inability to conduct himself or herself properly, a breach in procedural process or a review of the centre.”
Earlier, JAMB in a bulletin vowed to withhold the results of candidates found guilty of malpractices.
The bulletin read in part, “About 1.4 million candidates have so far taken the examination across the nation, with some examination towns and centres completing their own allotted number of candidates for the year while the results of sessions already taken will be released to the respective candidates.
“However, the release of these results is with a caveat that after previewing the Closed Circuit Television footage of the conduct of the examination, the result of any candidate found wanting would be withdrawn if it had been released or withheld if not yet released.”
About 1.7 million candidates took part in the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination nationwide in 755 registered computer-based centres.
Zamfara, according to the statistics made available to our correspondent in Abuja, has the least number of candidates while Lagos has the highest number of candidates in Nigeria and the South West.
