JAMB Releases 3,921 Outstanding UTME Results, Reschedules Exam for 24,535 Candidates

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announced on Sunday the release of 3,921 outstanding results from the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

In a statement by its spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, JAMB also announced that a rescheduled examination will be held for 24,535 candidates.

This decision follows an analysis of the previous exams, which revealed significant non-compliance with JAMB’s standards at certain centres.

“Rescheduled candidates are to print their supplementary Examination Notification Slip from Tuesday, June 4, 2024, to ascertain their designated examination centres,” the statement read.

The rescheduled exams will take place on Saturday, June 22, 2024, providing affected candidates with ample time to prepare.

With this release, the total number of results issued has reached 1,883,350.Candidates can check their results by sending RESULT to 55019 or 66019.

Those cleared will receive their results, while those rescheduled will be notified of the new date.

Regarding the Kwara State University diploma, JAMB stated, “After high-level meetings with the principal officers of the Kwara State College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies (CAILS) and Kwara State University (KWASU) about the CAILS-KWASU diploma programme, the board has agreed to conduct a special registration exercise for 3,633 prospective candidates.

These candidates, who did not participate in the 2024 UTME, will register at approved CBT centres in Kwara, Oyo, and Osun states within the next week, ending on Monday, June 10, 2024.”

Candidates who have already taken the 2024 UTME do not need to retake the exam. This concession aims to support and promote the aspirations of qualified candidates while maintaining standards.

The affected CAILS-KWASU candidates will have the opportunity to write the UTME on June 22, alongside 20,550 candidates whose results were previously under investigation and 2,702 candidates whose fingerprints could not be verified.

The remaining 322 candidates, implicated in examination misconduct, will undergo further interrogation to establish their culpability.

JAMB also announced that the 2024 Direct Entry registration will now close on Monday, June 17, to accommodate the increased number of prospective candidates.

Registration points have been expanded beyond the Professional Registration Centres in states with high demand.
