The results of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will be made public on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
In a statement, JAMB spokesman Fabian Benjamin added that any candidates who were unable to take the 2023 UTME at the allotted time due to circumstances beyond their control would have the exam rescheduled for Saturday, May 6, 2023.
According to him, these candidates fall into three categories: those who were biometrically validated at their centers but were unable to take the test, and those whose data was inconsistent.
“On Tuesday, May 2, 2023, the Board will announce the results of the candidates who have already taken the examination. The Board had postponed the publication in order to guarantee that all required screening had been completed and that the mean and standard deviation had been determined in a reasonable manner.
“Those who took the exam but encountered difficulties without being aware of them would not see their results when they checked their results on Tuesday, May 2, 2023; instead, they would see a notification for a rescheduled exam.
As a result, all test takers are asked to examine their results by Thursday, May 8, 2023, at the latest, according to the announcement.
Only 80,166 candidates remain out of the 1,586,765 who expressed interest in taking the test, according to him.
Due to a variety of factors, certain candidates in some centers were unable to take the exam on the first day of the 2023 UTME as well as in some centers on subsequent days. Although a sizable portion of them had their exams rescheduled and took them, some have not yet done so.
The Board has set Saturday, May 6, 2023, for all categories of applicants who have not yet taken their examination, as indicated below, to do so, according to the decisions made at the conclusion of an emergency management meeting held on Sunday, April 31, 2023, the statement continued.
