The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has explained why some candidates failed to receive their notification. According to JAMB Director of Press, Dr Benjamin, in a statement made available recently, some schools held their channels of receiving messages such as their SIM cards, e-mail addresses and profile codes despite repeated warnings by the Board that the University Tertiary Matriculation Examination was never a school-based exercise.
Benjamin added that some candidates whose centres could not carry their full capacity of 250 had to be matched with some of the centres taking 150 candidates, rather than the 250 allotted to them per session.
He disclosed further that while some of the remaining candidates in the batched sessions have been rescheduled, and have taken their examination as some were not yet to do so.
He confirmed that some candidates who had sat for the examination would not see their result, but see their notification for rescheduled examination.
He said the result were delayed deliberately to ensure all necessary screening were concluded, besides ensuring the mean and standard deviation were reasonably obtained before releasing the result.
