Since the commencement of the on-going 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Saturday, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released results of over 200,000 candidates who had written the examination.
This was brought to light by the Registrar/Chief Executive Officer of JAMB, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, on Tuesday during the monitoring of the exercise in Abuja and its environs.
The Registrar said that over 200,000 candidates’ results had been released since the examination commenced on Saturday, just as the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, expressed concern over the plight and difficulties faced by non-computer literate students sitting for the examination.
The minister expressed his dissatisfaction with the conduct of the Computer Based Test (CBT) mode of the examination.
Notwithstanding the minister’s reservation, Ojerinde urged candidates who had sat for the examination to visit the JAMB’s website and check their respective results.
Meanwhile, some candidates, aside the lateness in starting the examination, expressed their displeasure with the English Language paper as answers to some of the questions were not made available.
When contacted, the Public Relations Officer, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said the portion in question is the comprehension part whereby they have to fill in the gaps.
