Hope For UTME Candidates Who Had 'Technical Issues'
If you registered for the 2018 UTME and could not finish or write the exam due to technical issues from the computer you were given, there is some good news.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has embarked on a mop-up exercise for candidates with biometric issues and other related issues that was no fault of theirs during the conduct of the examination.
“Apart from the biometric issues, some candidates innocently found themselves in some centres that colluded with candidates to cheat in the examination.
“In such cases, it will be wrong to cancel the entire results of the candidates. All such innocent candidates will be singled out and be given the opportunity of re-taking the exam.
“As a responsive organisation, we will continue to ensure that every candidate is given a right to access higher education,” the board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin said.
The JAMB spokesman promised that the board would continue to deploy cutting edge technology in the conduct of its examinations in a bid to protect the integrity of its tests.
