The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has released no fewer than 1.3 million results of candidates that sat for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination on Monday. The Results were released after a thorough security check.
1 million Out of the 1.3 that sat for the exam were said to have failed the exam below admission margins. The hundred thousand students that made it scored points that were 200 and above.
About 200 thousand results were being withheld for further scrutiny to determine if they merit to be included as credible results from JAMB.
The board said the CCTV showed “strange things” such as CBT centre owners collecting money from candidates to engage in malpractices and also threatening JAMB officials at the centres.
The JAMB spokesman said, “We are presently viewing the CCTV to ensure that results are not released in several batches. On Monday, we will release over 1.3 million results. These are the results of the CBT centres that have been screened. We cannot say how many cases of malpractice we have yet, because we are still viewing the CCTV to discover more cases.
“Some strange findings that the CCTV has showed us include a situation where the CBT owners were collecting money from UTME candidates and seeing to how they could assist them. Our officials at the centres raised the alarm but they were also afraid so that their lives would not be endangered.
