The results of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) was said to be released on Wednesday 23, 2021.
This was disclosed by the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, who spoke at a news conference in Enugu on Wednesday.
Oloyede said he has no reason whatsoever to withhold the results of the 2021 UTME.
“The result ought to be out by now, but because I am not at the headquarters and I do not want to approve it while on the field.
“But as soon as I get to Abuja today all the examinations up to the one being taken today will be approved and released because we have no reason to continue to hold on to it,” he said.
The registrar said his team was at the Southeast to access what was going on with the conduct of the examinations as well as to visit new university in Ebonyi.
He noted that JAMB registered 1,415,501 candidates in the UTME 2021 and 1,122, 095 had taken the examinations so far while 66,111 had yet to take it.
According to him, the board has some 650 examination centres across the country, out of which, 30 centres have been delisted for performing below standard.
“53 centres are currently under watch while 600 of them performed excellently.
“It is our wish and desire that the board will continue to ensure that such non performing centres with ulterior motive will not be allowed to participate in the exercise,” he said.
