Candidates who sat for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination (UTME) have been directed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to print their result slips.
Fabian Benjamin, the spokesperson for the JAMB, in a statement on Sunday, June 7, said the result slips which had earlier been made available through text messages to candidates, can now be printed from the board’s website on request.
He told candidates to visit the board’s site where they can print their results slips after providing registration details, New Telegraph reports.
“All a candidate needs to do after visiting the site is to click on QUICK LINKS, then on ‘E-Facility’ where the candidate would be required to provide his/her registration details and the result notification slip would be displayed for printing," Benjamin said.
“The printing of the result notification slip is free as it is different from the original result slip that comes with the candidate’s picture.
JAMB explained that candidates can print their result notification slip anywhere in the country with internet access.
Meanwhile, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) said on Sunday, June 7, that it is set to commence its activities in Nigeria.
The organisation said it would commence examination after the Nigerian government reopens schools across the country.
WAEC had suspended its examinations in March 2020 following the closure of schools in the country as the government announced lockdown of some states and Abuja.
The Nigerian Tribune quotes WAEC's spokesperson, Demianus Ojijeogu, as stating this during an interview.
He explained that the organisation was fully set to commence its operations and conduct examinations for candidates but that it is not in a hurry. He said after schools resume, the organisation would have guidelines for conducting the examinations. He expects that WAEC would not rush its candidates into the examination even though it had provided them online study materials.
Still on education, the COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria is making the various schools and tertiary institutions like the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) adopt new strategies.
The management of the institution has said it would adopt a virtual matriculation for the new intakes which it has slated for June 13.

The institution said the adopted strategy is in line with the rules against coronavirus. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that this development was made known by Ibrahim Sheme, the university's director of media and publicity.
The statement said the tertiary institution adopted the virtual matriculation in obedience to the rule in the battle against COVID-19. The report also quoted the spokesperson as saying that Abdalla Adamu, the vice-chancellor, of the university, would deliver an address.
The students would, thereafter, administer oaths on the matriculating students and this would be carried out by Felix Idoka, the registrar.
The event is going to be live using zoom and the students are not expected to be physically present.
The institution urged the proposed matriculating students to download zoom so that they can easily participate.
