JAMB Holds Mop-Up UTME August 6




The Joint Admissions And Matriculation Board (JAMB) is to hold mop-up examination on Saturday, August 6 for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates who were unable to turn-up during the period of the exercise for verified reasons.

JAMB said the decision on the mop-up was its way of giving equal opportunity to all candidates desirous of tertiary education in the country.

The move for the mop-up examination was disclosed in its weekly bulletin issued by the JAMB head of media and information, Dr Fabian Benjamin on Monday in Abuja.

The board said: “JAMB, after every UTME exercise, reviews various reports from officials in the field and video footage of the examination. The reviews are done by a team of experts, with a view to detecting activities subversive of the examination process.

 “It’s after all the reports have been collated and considered that the management would take critical decisions as to the necessity or otherwise of a mop-up examination for affected candidates.

“So, after a thorough analysis of the conduct of the 2022 UTME in 10 centres spread across five states of the federation where examination malpractice was established to have taken place, it became necessary to cancel the results of all the candidates who sat the examination in the affected 10 centres.

Why JAMB Is Offering Mop-Up UTME

“The board took cognisance of the fact that some innocent candidates unfortunately sat their examination at these centres. Consequently, all candidates who sat the UTME in the affected centres have been rescheduled for the mop-up UTME.

“It should be noted that candidates who, for whatever reasons, were absent at those centres are not eligible for the mop-up examination. Other categories of candidates rescheduled for the mop-up utme are; 142 candidates who could not take the UTME due to finger-print peculiarities; 28 candidates who could not take the UTME due to technical problems in some centres; and 1,799 candidates with BVN failure who were recaptured at the centres.”
