The Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede has announced in Abuja earlier today, Wednesday 14th June, that 57,000 out of the 1,722,236 candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) but were involved in malpractices would have to rewrite the exam.
Professor Oloyede who made the announcement to journalists after said disclosed that 48 centers where exam malpractice took place would not participate in future exams conducted by the board.
The Registrar announced that the 62,140 candidates affected would rewrite the exam next month.
Controversies have trailed this years’ conduct of the tertiary matriculation exam organized by JAMB as complaints right from registration to allocation of exam venues have trailed the exerciser.
Some distraught candidates and their parents have even called for the sack of the Registrar and a reversal to the old ‘effective’ method used by the board in the past.
