The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has rescheduled the ongoing 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for candidates who could not sit for the examination on Tuesday, April 25, on account of technical challenges.
JAMB Spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, announced this in a statement after the JAMB management meeting at the close of today’s examination, which incidentally is the first day of the 2023 UTME.
The statement read, “Following the announcement, candidates, who for technical reasons could not take the examination, are to print a new examination notification early tomorrow morning, Wednesday, 26th April, 2023, to know their new scheduled sessions.
“It is to be noted that about 100 centres out of the 708 centres participating in the 2023 UTME exercise across the country, experienced technical challenges that prevented their allotted candidates from successfully taking their examination.
The Board in the statement reiterated its determination to deploy world-class assessment in line with global best practices to deliver quality assessment and regretted any inconveniences experienced by candidates and their parents.
The Board further restated that the series of challenges encountered were on account of some novel features deployed by the Board to safeguard the sanctity of the examination by checkmating all incidences of examination misconduct being perpetrated and perpetuated by vested interests.
