The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Monday said it would commence the release of results of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Board on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
This was contained in the minutes of an emergency management meeting held on Sunday, April 31, 2023, in Abuja, which was made available to our correspondent on Monday.
It read, “The board would be releasing the results of candidates, who have taken the examination so far on Tuesday, May 2, 2023. The board had delayed the release to ensure that all necessary screenings are concluded besides ensuring that the mean and standard deviation are reasonably obtained before releasing these results.
“As candidates check their results on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, those who sat for the examination but had challenges without being aware of such, would not see their results but would instead see their notification for rescheduled examination.”
The board also stated that “out of the 1,586,765 candidates that indicated an interest in sitting for the examination, only 80,166 are now outstanding.”
Similarly, the examination body also noted that three categories of candidates who missed their examinations had been rescheduled for mop-up examinations.
“All candidates, who could not sit the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time owing to no fault of theirs, would be rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, May 6, 2023.
“Candidates under these categories are principally those who were verified at their centres but could not sit the examination; those who could not be biometrically verified, and those with mismatched data,” the board stated.
