62,140 Candidates will Rewrite JAMB on July 1st. If you follow close report, Jamb recently release some 2017 withheld results. How every Jamb didn’t made clear the numbers of candidates withheld result that was released.
Some of the result were cancelled over examination malpractice. And some others were cancelled due to multiple examinations.
As you can’t really tell the reason for your result cancellations however Jamb has giving another opportunity to candidates who’s result was cancelled to rewrite their UTME exam again on the 1st July 2017. This was confirmed by The registrar of JAMB, Ishaq Oloyede, at a press briefing after the board’s management meeting in Abuja.
He also explained that the rescheduled examination was also for candidates of centres with mass malpractice, but the candidates were deemed innocent.
48 centres have therefore been banned from conducting any future JAMB exam, as a result of gross technical deficiencies, extortion from candidates, organised examination malpractice and other damaging infractions, as concluded by JAMB.
24 other centres were suspended from next year’s JAMB for not meeting expectations required for the success of the exam in their centres.
We believe the candidates to re-write their exams will be duly notified via email, and may be required to reprint their JAMB Exam Slip in due time.
However this is an opportunity for those who will be allowed for the rewriting of the exam to get serious and make it without further complaint as chances like this may not be offered again by Jamb.
