According to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), 67 individuals who enrolled for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) but were unable to sit for the exam or take the recently ended Mop-Up UTME have a date set for Saturday, September 24, 2022.
Eko Hot Blog reports that in a statement issued on Monday by the Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Fabian Benjamin, said those affected would take the examination at specially-designated centres.
Recall that after the 2022 UTME, the Board reviewed the entire exercise and those candidates with biometric challenges were provided the opportunity of sitting a mop-up examination.
The board also stated that any candidate presenting any challenge(s) would have to indicate or declare such peculiarities during registration for them to be given special consideration and allocated to centres within its National Headquarters, Abuja.
The board, however, said on Monday that in spite of the discovery of a series of suspicious challenges presented by some candidates, it has, “on account of its avowed commitment to equity and fairness, scheduled another set of 67 candidates to sit the examination at designated centres, under close scrutiny of the Board”.
The statement said the decision to give the affected candidates an unusual opportunity was to ensure that no innocent candidate is punished unjustly.
“These 67 candidates are, therefore, urged to print their supplementary examination notification slips from Monday, 19th September, 2022, to know the centres where they would be sitting for the examination, ” it added.
