The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has stated the reason the agency has yet to release the results of the exam that had commenced on Friday.



The REgistrar of the agency said that it is because of internal regulation and appraisal of the exam to determine if there is any case of malpractice or not, this was disclosed by its Registrar/Chief Executive, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said on Tuesday.

According to him, JAMB wouldn’t want to release results because it had asked people to submit reports, particularly of malpractices.

Oloyede stated this in Abuja during a meeting of the National Youth Service Corps management and with Registrars of Corps Producing Institutions in Nigeria.

He said, “Yes, we have no reason not to release the results but we are also doing some internal appraisal. One, we don’t want this situation where you release results and you start to withdraw some; so we have asked people to submit reports, particularly of malpractices.

And for the first day after the result was ready, we now scrutinized and we saw that about 40 per cent of the report were not in. So, why release 60 per cent and create confusion? We have insisted that this year, we will not release the results until we have all the reports of examination malpractices.

“So, the issue of releasing results and now coming, they will be very few rather than the large number that we had. The results are ready but we believe we need to have all the reports; we have about 70 per cent of reports now updated but we want 100 per cent.

“The result will be out; for instance, I was told that the exam of Saturday is completed now. The results are in; when I get to the office today I will append my signature and it will go out.”
