JAMB says the 2018 UTME result will be released in Batches

AMB’s spokesman, Dr Fabian Benjamin made this known on Sunday, March 18 during an interview with newsmen in Abuja.
Benjamin said that the board wanted to ensure all results are screened before they are released.
“We are presently viewing the CCTV to ensure that results are not released in several batches. On Monday, we will release over 1.3 million results. These are the results of the CBT centres that have been screened.  We cannot say how many cases of malpractice we have yet because we are still viewing the CCTV to discover more cases.
 
The JAMB spokesman also said that the exam body found out CBT owners who collect money from candidates.
“Some strange findings that the CCTV has shown us include a situation where the CBT owners were collecting money from UTME candidates and seeing to how they could assist them. Our officials at the centres raised the alarm but they were also afraid so that their lives would not be endangered.
“What the JAMB officials did was to silently play along with them, but we were watching everything on the CCTV. We later sent operatives to the centres and caught them. Such UTME results were completely cancelled. We knew that there were some innocent candidates in such centres and we have asked them to go to other CBT centres and rewrite immediately.”
Recall that few days to the end of the 2018 UTME , JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede condemned parents who encourage their children to engage in examination malpractices.
Oloyede said parents should dissociate themselves from such ”shameful acts.”
