Breaking: JAMB announces date for release of 2019 UTME results

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said that it would release the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results on Saturday.

According to him, the board will meet and consider the details available to be announced to the general public.

“We are releasing our results tomorrow, we are having a meeting today to consider what to put out,” he said.

The 2019 UTME was held from April 11 to April 18 with over 1.8 million registered candidates.

Since then, the board is yet to release the results.

It explained that it would first screen the entire candidates’ results to weed out those who were involved in any form of malpractice during the examination.

Meanwhile, the Registrar has paraded a staff of the board, who allegedly collected N25, 000 from a 2018 admission seeker.

He said the suspect was reported to the JAMB management after he couldn’t meet the demand.

The registrar reiterated the board’s determination to deal decisively with anyone, including its staff, found involved in any form of infraction.

” We are not hiding anything; we are ready to deal with anybody caught and they must face the wrath of the law,” he said.

Meanwhile, JAMB on Sunday, May 5, said it had secured conviction of five persons who were involved in examination fraud and malpractice during the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
