Candidates With Awaiting Results Are Eligible To Apply For UTME- Says JAMB

By Chibuike Nwabuko

ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB), in Abuja on Thursday clarified that candidates with awaiting results can register and sit for the Universities Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The clarification became necessary following the confusion as to whether candidates with awaiting result are eligible to register for the UTME.
In a statement signed by the spokesperson of JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin and sent to Sundiata Post, JAMB said that candidates with awaiting result are eligible to register and sit for the University Tertiary Matriculation Examination. He however, said that such students have between May and August to upload their result  to be confirmed into any tertiary institution.

Benjamin who said, “This would enable JAMB grant admission to only qualified candidates who are ready to advance their educational pursuit in tertiary institutions, conserve resources and also provide credible data, added that, JAMB don’t want to be giving admissions to candidates that are not qualified to be admitted.
According to him, “All candidates who are desirous of tertiary education are to upload their O’ Level result on our site.  We don’t want to be giving admissions to candidates that are not qualified to be admitted. It has been discovered over time that most of the times when these candidates are admitted, they don’t meet the requirements. 
“ At the point of admission we would have sieved our records and any candidate who has not uploaded his or her result at that point, is not eligible for admission, said the Spokesman.
“We have a good number of candidates who have written their exams in years past and they have their results ready waiting for this process, we will factor those ones and the few ones that will get their results before August. We are not working for those that will be writing their exams. But if by chance you write your O’ Level examinations and JAMB this year and your result is ready, good for you.” 
He added that candidates, who are not computer literate, have a choice of applying for a UTME mock examination at a fee of N700. 00 nationwide. 
Benjamin explained that the UTME mock examination was optional and aimed at allowing students have a feel of the Computer Based Test (CBT), especially those ignorant of the CBT process.
