2024 UTME: JAMB reschedules exams for 24,535 candidates, releases 3,921 more results


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says a supplementary 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for 24,535 candidates has been scheduled for Saturday, June 22, 2024, for some candidates.

In a statement signed by the board’s spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, said the rescheduled examination would give affected candidates adequate time to prepare for the exercise.

“The board has painstakingly analysed the process and conduct of the 2024 UTME in some centres where there are strong proofs of substantial non-compliance with the board’s standards.

“Consequently, 24,535 candidates have been rescheduled to retake the examination in their chosen examination towns on Saturday, June 22, 2024,” said Mr Benjamin.

He said the candidates include those from Kwara State College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies (CAILS) and Kwara State University (KWASU) on the CAILS-KWASU Diploma programme.

Others are some 20,550 candidates whose results were up until now under investigation and 2,702 candidates whose fingers could not be verified who were given the benefit of the doubt to sit for the 2024 UTME.

He said the remaining 322 had been migrated to the category of candidates under examination misconduct as a prima facie case had been established that those who had registered were not those who appeared for the examination.

Mr Benjamin said examination misconduct had also increased by 322 to 431, and the board had released an additional 3,921 outstanding 2024 UTME results.

“Therefore, concerned candidates are urged to check their results from Saturday, June 1, 2024, by sending RESULT to 55019 or 66019 to ascertain their status, as those cleared would have their results while those rescheduled would be told that they had been rescheduled,” he said.

He urged the rescheduled candidates to print their supplementary examination notification slip from Tuesday, June 4, 2024, to ascertain their designated examination centres.

The JAMB spokesperson said the additional 3,921 released results brought the total results released so far to 1,883,350.

He added that candidates with prima facie case(s) of examination misconduct would be further interrogated to establish their culpability, after which appropriate measures would be taken and announced.

He also said the board, after yielding to the pleas of many stakeholders and authorities for the extension of the 2024 Direct Entry (DE) registration, had decided to bring the DE registration to a close on Monday, June 17, 2024.

Mr Benjamin said that to facilitate the registration wrap-up, it had expanded the DE registration points beyond the Professional Registration Centres (PRCs) owned by JAMB.

“The states where there is an upsurge of prospective DE candidates as Lagos State: -(a) JAMB PRC, No 11, Ojora Road, Ikoyi Lagos; (b) JAMB PRC, No 35-37, Isheri Road, Ogba, Ikeja Lagos, (c) ETC Nig. Ltd, 229, JKK House Ikorodu, Road, Ilupeju.

“Oyo State:- (a) JAMB PTC, JAMB Zonal Office, Quarters 845, Agodi G.R.A, Ibadan, Oyo State; (b) Federal College of Education (FCE) Special, CBT Centre, Oyo; (c) JAMB PTC, Igboho.

“Kwara State: (a) JAMB PTC, National Headquarters Annex, After Oyun Bridge, Old Jebba Road, Ilorin, Kwara State; (b) University of Ilorin CBT Centre, Mini Campus.

“Osun State: (a) JAMB PTC, behind Technical College WAEC Road, Alekuwodo, Osogbo, Osun State; (b) JAMB PTC, Block Y (Commercial) OSPDC, Oroki Estate, Service Area, Ilobu Road, Osogbo, Osun State; (c) JAMB PTC, Gbongon.

“It is our belief that all eligible candidates would take advantage of this opportunity to register as no further extension would be entertained,” he explained.

He, therefore, said that the previously announced criteria for DE registration remained unchanged.

On CAILS-KWASU Diploma, he said the board had agreed to conduct a special registration exercise for the 3,633 prospective candidates who did not participate in the 2024 UTME.
