The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of 14, 620 candidates for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) after investigation but withheld those of 93 candidates.
The board also withdrew the results earlier issued to 14 candidates on the ground of malpractice.
In a statement by JAMB’s Head of Media, Fabian Benjamin yesterday in Abuja, the board said the decision to release the results followed the consideration and further approval of the recommendations of the investigators by the board’ management at a meeting on Tuesday, 27, 2021.
According to the statement, the results of 332 blind candidates whose examination was conducted this month have also been released.
“You will recall that the Board, in its earlier release, stated it would still review the results of the 2021 UTME exercise and any candidate found wanting would have his/her result withheld.
“Out of the withheld results thirteen were discovered to have been involved in examination infractions after they were released and the one earlier withdrawn bringing the total of the results that have been withdrawn to fourteen.”
The affected candidates whose results have been withdrawn include: Gabriel Micheal; Lawson Ruth Joy; Sadiq Mahbub Auwal; Attama Lawrence Ikedichukwu; Tambaya Yahaya; Anowa Anointing and Ogbonna Joseph Dibia.
