JAMB announces July 1 for exam resit with over 85,000 candidates to write supplementary UTME

Saturday, July 1 was fixed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to conduct supplementary Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination for 85 ,000 candidates .

On Tuesday Dr Fabian Benjamin  , announced the date in a statement in Abuja .

He said that the examination , which is for candidates who registered late and those with related issues , will be spread across some Computer Based Testing centres .

He added“ 85 ,000 candidates are scheduled to write the examination and  affected candidates have been notified through text messages .

He also said that they are advised to check their e - mail and profile for the schedule of their examination or visit the board ’s website for their status .

Mr Benjamin said, candidates will soon be requested to print their e - slip for details such as date , venue and time of the examination .

The board noted that candidates , who are not listed for the supplementary , would not be communicated to, while those,whose results are withheld , would reflect in their profiles , which have been updated .

The board also advised rescheduled candidates to comport themselves and be of good behaviour to avoid the circumstance that earlier necessitated the cancellation of their previous examination .

 Some Many of the candidates rescheduled for this examination enjoy this privilege because of the board ’s principles of equality and inclusiveness .

“ It is better to let 100 offenders go free than to punish one innocent person .
“ The board will enhance its monitoring of the examination as it would not compromise its sanctity. ”
1 .7 million candidates registered for the 2017 UTME in 633 centres across the country .
The examination was conducted from May 13 to May 20 but the board cancelled the results of more than 50 ,000
candidates .
It also delisted 48 Computer Based Testing centres over what was described as huge and organised malpractices .
