Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released over 1,502,978 results of the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
JAMB revealed this in a statement on Tuesday where it added the results were released after viewing all CCTV footage during the conduct of the examination.
It noted that “out of the number yet to be released, 350 are results of blind candidates which would be released soon, while 111,981 results were being withheld for further screening.”
In addition, the board stated that the number excluded foreign candidates whose examination was scheduled for April.
The board said that unlike the 2017 exercise, release of results would not be immediate,
adding that JAMB would scrutinise candidates’ results before releasing them to avoid multiple cancellations later.
