JAMB Result 2019; parents, candidates beg JAMB to release results

Some 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations candidates have appealed to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to release their results.

The candidates spoke in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Bwari.

The 2019 UTME commenced on April 11 to April 18 with 1.8 million registered candidates.

The Board has repeatedly said that it would take its time to screen the results because of the several infractions discovered during the exercise.

Madueke John, a candidate, said that the long wait for the results has held some of the candidates back, while also causing a lot of tension.

“With everything we are hearing from JAMB and other media reports we are getting, we are tense.

“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 the Board was, undoubtedly, doing what it deemed best for the country.

She, however, added that it would also do a lot of good if some of the results are released.

Adam added that the long wait has caused some of the candidates to be unsure of what might happen at the end of the day.

She 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 whether one’s result would be held for mere turning his or her head during the examination.

“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.”

Mr. Joseph Onimisi, a candidate’s parent, commended the Board for exposing some of the corruption in the system, but advised that parts of the results be released too.

This, he said would reduce the criticism of the Board by those skeptical of its intention, adding that the entire process may take longer than the Board had expected.

The Board had continued to assure that it would release the results of the 2019 UTME as soon as it was done screening the entire results, to cut out those who were involved in one malpractice or the other during the exercise.
