The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has reason why result of the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) was yet to be released.
The Board told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview that the delay was because each result had to undergo total scrutiny before being posted on its website to avoid cancellations later.
The Head of Media of the Board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, therefore urged its candidates to patiently await the release of the results.
He said the board was working diligently to ensure that the results are processed and posted on the board’s website soonest.
Benjamin said that modalities were being put in place to ensure all the results are transparent and accurate.
He reiterated that the board was delaying some of the results because each has to undergo total scrutiny before being posted on its website to avoid cancellations later.
According to him, some of the results would be ready by Monday, March 19.
He also assured that all technical difficulties encountered to access the website were being addressed.
Some of candidates who sat for the examinations earlier, were yet to receive their results.
While some said that they received the reply of “your results are not ready yet”, others complained that the site says “you did not register for this examination.’’
The examination, which was scheduled to end on Saturday, March 17, ended on Friday, March 16.
