JAMB Conducts Supplimentary Exam For 67 Candidates

The joint admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has scheduled Saturday, September 24, 2022, for Supplimentary Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

JAMB Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Fabian Benjamin, in a statement says the test is for 67 candidates, who had registered for the 2022 UTME, but could neither sit for the examination nor take the just-concluded Mop-Up UTME, owing to one challenge or another.

The statement said after the 2022 UTME, the Board had reviewed the entire exercise and those candidates with biometric challenges were given the opportunity of sitting for a mop-up examination.

JAMB however clarified that since the conduct of a mop-up examination is a stopgap measure, it would not be allowed to be a permanent feature of its calendar, stressing that any candidate presenting any strange challenge(s) would have to indicate or declare such peculiarities at the point of registration for them to be given special consideration and allocated centres within its National Headquarters, Abuja, for close monitoring.

JAMB Said in spite of the discovery of series of suspicious challenges presented by some candidates, the Board has, on account of its avowed commitment to equity and fairness, scheduled another set of 67 candidates to sit for the examination at designated centres, under close scrutiny.

It noted that the decision to give these set of candidates this unusual opportunity is to ensure that no single innocent candidate is punished unjustly.

JAMB urged the 67 candidates to print their supplementary examination notification slips from Monday, September 19, 2022, to know the centres where they would be sitting for the examination.
