The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has stated why the results of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination have not yet been released (UTME).
The examination body has yet to release results, according to the Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, due to internal appraisal. He added that the body would not release results until it received reports of examination malpractices, and that only 60% of results were received after the exams.
“We have no reason not to release the results,” Oloyede said, “but we are also conducting internal evaluation.” One, we don’t want to end up in a situation where you release some results and then start withdrawing others; thus, we’ve asked people to submit reports, particularly of malpractices.
“And the first day after the results were ready, we examined the report and discovered that about 40% of it was missing.” So what’s the point of releasing 60% and causing havoc? We have stated that we will not release results this year until we have received all reports of examination malpractice. The results are ready, but we believe we still need all of the reports; we’ve updated about 70% of them so far, but we’d like to get to 100%.
For the 2022 election, over 1.7 million candidates applied. As the exercise progressed, Oloyede also stated that it had no major concerns. It did, however, reiterate its zero tolerance policy for exam infractions and urged candidates to conduct themselves appropriately while adhering to the rules.
Meanwhile, some CBT centre operators have appealed to the government for financial assistance, despite describing the exam as a success overall.
Banjo Adekunle, the administrator of the Bafuto Institute of Management and Information Technology, said the rising cost of diesel is a major challenge.
Mrs Esther Oriyomi, of the Classic International CBT centre, stated that the body has vastly improved in the examination’s conduct. Network and malpractice issues, she said, have diminished.
Longa Olusegun, the administrator of the Rising Sun CBT centre, said the facility has been operational for five years and has overcome some challenges. He claimed that the body’s network system has improved, and that they only use generators during the examination period.
Candidates, on the other hand, had mixed feelings about whether the exams were successful or not. While some candidates said the exams went well and the networks improved, others said the questions, particularly in English, were difficult to understand.
Adewole Suliat and Tijani Sumayya said the exam was one of the easiest they’d ever taken, and they predicted a score of 300 or higher. Tolu Jimoh and Ololade Ganiyu, on the other hand, said they experienced delays while taking the exam, while others complained about a slow internet connection.
