The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that plans are underway to release no fewer than 1.3 million results of candidates that wrote the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Monday (today).
This is after the results had gone through security checks and found to be without malpractice.
This disclosure was made by the JAMB Head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, on Sunday in an interview with The Punch.
According to him, the UTME results of Computer-Based Test centres where the CCTV showed malpractices had been cancelled.
The board said the CCTV showed “strange things” such as CBT centre owners collecting money from candidates to engage in malpractices and also threatening JAMB officials at the centres.
Benjamin said, “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.
“Some strange findings that the CCTV has showed 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.”
