Some 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) candidates have begged the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to release their results.
JAMB had revealed severally that it would not release the results in a haste into to detect malpractice in the 2019 UTME which held from April 11 to 18, with 1.8 million registered candidates.
Some of the candidates that spoke with NAN in Abuja said that wasting time to release the result has caused many candidates tension.
Madueke John, a candidate said: “With everything we are hearing from JAMB and other media reports, we are tensed. ”
“I know I did not do anything that will incriminate me during the exams but the entire process this time around has really changed.
“If JAMB, while screening, discovers those who are innocent, why don’t they release those ones and continue screening others, seriously, this is taking forever.
“I really don’t know what to expect again, but please, they should just focus on this year’s exercise and release at least parts of the results to reduce the tension. ”
Another candidate, Henrietta Adams said: “Even if you are sure you did not commit any malpractice during the exercise, with the way the entire process is going, one is forced to start thinking if one’s result will be held for mere turning his or her head during the examination,” she said.
“I truly don’t know what to say or expect again, I am just confused if at least some results were released in parts like last year, then at least, one will be hopeful but as it is, only God knows what they may come up with next.
“We will continue to wait but please JAMB, do something soonest. ”
However, JAMB has said it would release the results of the 2019 UTME immediately it completely screens all the results, to eliminate those who committed one form of malpractice or the other.
