The 2018 unified tertiary and matriculation examination started about two weeks ago, and while many have already seen their score, there are still some students that are yet to see their results. This can be very unnerving as the anxiety that the students use to wait for their result keep building. A lot of students have already started calling friends and family that they know to have any association to the jamb.
If you are one of this people, you need to be calm as this has always been the case every single year. Some of the results have to be properly scrutinized by JAMB before it can be released and sometimes this problem is even common to a whole center.
Also according to the meeting held by JAMB on Monday about the delay of the result, the board head’s of information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said in his statement that;
“The Board is working diligently to ensure that the results are processed and posted on the board’s website soonest.
“The board was delaying some of the results because each has to undergo total scrutiny before being posted on its website to avoid cancellations later.
“Modalities were being put in place to ensure all the results are transparent and accurate.
“Tuesday’s result will be the second batch of the recently concluded UTME, which a total of 1,662,762 candidates registered for,” Benjamin said.
What this means is that if you haven’t seen your result yet, just make sure to be patient and keep checking the official jamb website for your result. Make sure you are also careful as there are a lot of fraudsters who will capitalize on the innocence of candidate and try to defraud them.
You can keep checking the result at the jamb portal, and hopefully, you will soon see yours. the exam which ended on Saturday had over 1.6 million candidates.
