This was revealed in the minutes of a meeting conducted at the conclusion of an emergency management meeting held in Abuja over the weekend.
The meeting’s minutes, however, were made accessible to the press on Monday by JAMB spokesperson Dr Fabian Benjamin.
The delay in the distribution of results was due to JAMB wanting to guarantee that all relevant checks were completed.
“On Tuesday, May 2, 2023, the Board will release the results of candidates who have taken the examination thus far.
“The Board had delayed the release to ensure that all necessary screening was completed, as well as that the mean and standard deviation were reasonably obtained before disclosing these results.”
“As candidates check their results on Tuesday, May 2nd, 2023, those who sat the examination but had challenges without being aware of such, will not see their results but will instead see their notification for rescheduled examination,” the statement added.
Similarly, the examination authority observed that three groups of students who skipped their exams had their exams rescheduled for mop-ups.
“All candidates who were unable to sit the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time due to no fault of their own will be rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, May 6, 2023,” it read.
