JAMB to Reschedule UTME for Candidates Who Missed Exam

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

JAMB has announced that it will reschedule the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for candidates who were unable to take the exam during their scheduled time due to reasons beyond their control.

These reasons include being verified at their centers but not being able to sit the exam, not being able to be biometrically verified, and having mismatched data.

The rescheduled exam will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2023.

JAMB had previously scheduled the UTME to take place from April 25 to May 2, 2023, and had implemented innovative methods to prevent exam infractions.

However, some candidates were unable to take the exam due to human negligence.

JAMB will release the results of candidates who have taken the exam on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, and candidates who had challenges without being aware of them will be notified of a rescheduled exam instead of seeing their results.

All candidates are urged to check their results by Thursday, May 8, 2023.

JAMB explained the category of candidates scheduled to write the examination on Saturday thus:

“A. UNVERIFIED CANDIDATES

“These are candidates, who were registered for the 2023 UTME without manifesting any biometric difficulty but who could not be verified on the day of the examination.

“These candidates had not previously manifested any fingerprint defect or experienced any biometric challenge during the 2023 UTME registration but could not be verified to sit the examination on their scheduled examination date.

“These candidates will be taking their examination in Abuja, under close supervision.

“B. CANDIDATES AT BEAUTIFUL BEGINNING CBT CENTRE, APO, ABUJA

All candidates, who were scheduled to sit the 2023 UTME at the Beautiful Beginning CBT Centre, Apo, Abuja, but missed the examination for whatever reason have been rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, 6th May, 2023.

“The rescheduling of all the candidates, who missed the examination is as a result of the mistake made in the address of the centre, which had led to some candidates missing their examination.

“It should be noted that the name of the centre which is Beautiful Beginning CBT Centre, Apo, Abuja, featured “Gwagwalada” rather than “Apo” hence misleading the candidates.

“As a responsible organisation, the Board would not abdicate its responsibilities and has consequently, rescheduled all candidates posted to the centre, who could not sit their examination on account of the wrong address or any other reason, to ensure that no candidate misses the examination.

“C. CANDIDATES RESCHEDULED TO TAKE THE EXAMINATION ON THURSDAY, 27TH APRIL, 2023, BUT WHO COULD NOT RECEIVE THE NOTIFICATION

“Also to take the examination along with the unverified candidates on Saturday, 6th May, 2023, are those candidates, who had been rescheduled to retake their examination on Thursday, 27th April, 2023, but who received their notification late on Thursday night and so missed their examination.

“Some of these candidates could not receive the notification because their school held on to their channels of receiving messages such as their SIM cards, their e-mail addresses and profile codes.

“The Board, in spite of its repeated warnings that its processes are not school-based and would not take responsibility for any of such challenge, is bending over backwards to accommodate these set of candidates, who have also been rescheduled to sit the examination on Saturday, 6th May, 2023.

“D) CANDIDATES IN CENTRES WITH REDUCED CAPACITY

Among the candidates, who have not taken their examination, are those whose centres could not carry their full capacity of 250 and, such, had to be batched with some of these centres taking 150 candidates rather than the 250 allotted to them per session. Some of these remaining candidates in the batched sessions have also been rescheduled and have taken the examination but some are yet to do so

“E) CANDIDATES WITH DATA MISMATCH

“For obvious reasons, some CBT centres mismatched the data of some candidates they registered. This was also made possible by the carelessness of these candidates who could not avail themselves of the Board’s provision of dual screens to monitor the course of their registration.

“These category of candidates could not sit the examination as their mismatched personal details could not be rectified early enough to enable them sit their examination at their scheduled time.

The process of rectifying their data is ongoing and they will also be scheduled to sit the examination on Saturday, 6th May, 2023.

“E. RELEASE OF RESULTS

The Board would be releasing the results of candidates, who have taken the examination so far on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023. The Board had delayed the release to ensure that all necessary screening are concluded besides ensuring that the mean and standard deviation are reasonably obtained before releasing these results.

“As candidates check their results on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023, those who sat the examination but had challenges without being aware of such, would not see their results but would instead see their notification for rescheduled examination.

“Consequently, all candidates who sat the examination are urged to check their results on or before Thursday, 8th May, 2023.

“F. PRINTING OF RESCHEDULED EXAMINATION NOTIFICATION SLIP

“All candidates under the categories listed above are required to print their slips on or before Thursday, 4th-5th May, 2023, so as to know the time and venue of their examination.

“Candidates are to note that they would be grouped in a central location within their respective States to sit the examination hence the need for them to print their notification slips latest by Thursday, 4th May, 2023, so as to make sufficient arrangements to sit the examination.”
