The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is on the brink of unveiling the results of the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), marking a pivotal moment for thousands of aspiring tertiary education students across Nigeria. Scheduled to hold a press briefing in Abuja on Monday, JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, will shed light on the outcome of the examination and address related matters, as detailed in a notice circulated to journalists in the capital city.

The notice, disseminated by the Board’s Head of Public Relations, Fabian Benjamin, signifies the imminent disclosure of examination outcomes, albeit with a caveat. There are indications that the results to be released on Monday pertain solely to candidates who participated in the UTME during its initial days, with others slated for release following the completion of “due diligence.”

JAMB’s decision to exercise caution in the release process stems from a commitment to uphold the credibility and integrity of the examination results. With a focus on mitigating concerns surrounding issues such as impersonation, mixed biometrics, and other forms of malpractice, the examination body prioritizes thorough scrutiny to avert doubts or uncertainties.

Throughout the past week, a staggering 1.9 million candidates undertook the 2024 UTME across over 700 Computer-Based Test centers nationwide, underscoring the significance of this academic milestone in Nigeria’s educational landscape. The examination, which commenced on Friday, April 19, 2024, is poised to conclude today, marking the culmination of rigorous preparations and dedicated efforts from aspirants countrywide.

As the anticipation mounts and candidates await the unveiling of their UTME results, JAMB remains steadfast in its commitment to transparency and accountability, ensuring that each outcome reflects the merit and diligence of the examinees. Prof. Oloyede’s impending briefing signals not only the culmination of an arduous examination process but also a testament to JAMB’s unwavering dedication to upholding standards of excellence in Nigeria’s tertiary education sector.
