The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has disclosed a plan to further screen 27,105 results of candidates who sat the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
While disclosing this via it’s Twitter handle on Thursday May 26, 2022, the board also noted that it had withheld 69 results so far.
In the statistics made available via the official twitter handle of the board, @jAMBHQ, the board noted that 1,761,338 candidates registered for the 2022 UTME.
“Only 1,671,203 results out of the 1,707,626 candidates who sat for the examinations were released,” the statistics reveals.
The statistics also indicated that 27,105 results would be subjected to further screening.
The board said 69 results were withheld while 1,783 candidates are to be rescheduled to write as a result of biometric challenges.
“For effective delivery of its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination at the various CBT centres nationwide, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has concluded plans to phase out the use of zero thin-client computers from the conduct of its UTME.
“Hence, the major drawback against a zero thin-client configuration is that once the memory of the server is exhausted, or if there is any network disruption, all connected users are simultaneously affected, thereby impacting multiple candidates at once in the centre,” the Board said.
It added, “This policy direction is one of the measures being contemplated to address the issue of examination disruptions holistically.
“Consequently, the board, in consideration of the immense benefits to candidates and centres alike, is requesting its partnering centres to begin to plan for obtaining mini PCs that are cheap to procure, easy to operate, and more efficient in power consumption.”
