JAMB Releases 2023 UTME Results

…By Jack Sylva for TDPel Media. The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Candidates who took part in the examination are urged to check their results as soon as possible.

The board made the announcement on its official website.

Reasons for Delayed Release and Statistics

According to JAMB, the delay in releasing the results was due to ensuring that all necessary screenings were concluded and that the mean and standard deviation were reasonably obtained before releasing the results.

A total of 2,112,546 candidates registered for the examination, out of which 2,097,184 sat for the test.

The results of 59,662 candidates were withheld due to various infractions.

Ensuring Fairness for All Candidates

The UTME results were expected to be released on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.

Candidates who experienced technical difficulties during the examination without realizing it would not see their results but would instead be notified of a rescheduled examination.

This measure ensured that all candidates had an equal opportunity to take the examination and that any technical problems that may have arisen during the examination were resolved before the results were released.

Printing of Results and Warnings

Candidates are advised to print out their results as they may be required for admission screening exercises.

JAMB also warned candidates to beware of fraudulent individuals or websites claiming to be able to upgrade their results, noting that such claims are false and should be disregarded.
