JAMB who promised the results of the 2019 UTME would be released on Monday 29th, April have through their head of media and publicity, Fabian Benjamin said the results were not going to be released on Monday and not on Tuesday too.
According to him, the delay was because the board had not concluded the process of the exercise.
“We will not release it today, Monday (April 29) and will not release it tomorrow, Tuesday (April 30).
“What we said was anytime within this week. By implication, we are concluding the screening exercise this week and results can be released anytime within the week,” he said.
Why JAMB has not released the results
JAMB has said the results of the 2019 UTME will be released as soon as reports from the 687 Computer Based Test centres used for the conduct of the examination are reviewed.
The board said the review of reports from these centres will be concluded on Monday or Tuesday.
JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin said, “We are comparing reports from the field and as soon as we finish either today or tomorrow, we will commence the process of releasing the results.
“We are collecting reports from 687 centres. The results will be released as soon as we finish what we are doing.”
JAMB warns against fraudsters
JAMB had warned 2019 UTME candidates against fraudsters who deploy various methods to dupe them.
The JAMB board disclosed this in its Vol. 1, No 17 weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Abuja.
JAMB also advised candidates to jealously guard their Registration numbers, as well as Profile Codes to avoid falling victims to the scam.
“Candidates are to note that their Registration numbers and Profile Codes are essential data that should not be disclosed to unauthorized persons.
“What these fraudsters do is take advantage of candidates’ naivety and subsequently obtain their registration number with which they print their examination notification slips with candidate’s numbers and other vital data.
“These fraudsters then use the information to send messages to same candidates disguising as officials of the board or persons who have special information, access and capacity to inflate scores, among other things.
“We, therefore, urge candidates to see their registration numbers and profile codes as security data similar to that of the ATM pin number which admits them to make a withdrawal from their bank accounts.”
