62,140 candidates will have to dust their books and get ready to rewrite the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination after their centres were found guilty.

JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, who disclosed this on Wednesday noted that a total of 59,698 UTME results were also cancelled by the board.

A breakdown of the cancelled results showed that 57,646 candidates wrote in centres, which were fraudulent; 1,386 candidates were caught cheating, while 666 candidates did multiple registrations.

It was learnt that only the first group of 57,646 would be allowed to rewrite the UTME. This group would be joined by 3,811 candidates, who did late registration and 683 who had biometric-related issues, to make a total of 62,140 candidates.

Oloyede said the board has slated Saturday, July 1, for the examination.

The registrar noted that 48 centres have also been delisted from participating in the exercise for violating regulations.

All the best as you check your scores.
