The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says about 1.4 million candidates have so far sat for its 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).


According to NAN, the board, in its weekly bulletin on Tuesday, said their results will be released soon.

JAMB said the results for its ongoing UTME were undergoing a form of scrutiny before being released to candidates.

“About 1.4 million candidates have so far taken the examination across the country with some examination towns and centres completing their own allotted number of candidates for the year,” it said.


“The results of sessions already taken will be released soon.

“However, the release of these results is with the caveat that after previewing the CCTV footage of the conduct of the examination, the result of any candidate found wanting would be withdrawn if already released.

“If not yet released, such result would be withheld.”


NAN reports that over 1.7 million candidates registered for the 2022 exercise and were expected to sit for the ongoing exercise across the country.

JAMB also said that it had no significant concerns as the exercise progressed.

It reiterated its zero-tolerance for exam infractions and urged candidates to conduct themselves properly.

The board also warned computer-based tests (CBT) centre owners not to engage in any form of infraction against its operational code that might negatively impact the exercise.


“The board is not here to subordinate the interest of Nigeria to any other interests. JAMB would, therefore, not tolerate any infraction, no matter how small,” the board added.

“If the tempo of JAMB activities is too high for any centre, they are to, at liberty, seek other areas of engagement as there are so many things people can do outside partnering with JAMB.”

The 2022 UTME commenced on May 6 and is scheduled to end on May 16.
