CANDIDATES WHO WOULD PARTICIPATE IN THE JAMB SUPPLEMENTARY EXAM
The JAMB Supplementary exam will take place 1 July, mostly for candidates who registered late for this year’s UTME. Oloyede added that some of the candidates whose results were cancelled, would also take part in the JAMB Supplementary exam.
He listed the categories of candidates whose results were cancelled but would take part in the JAMB Supplementary exam to include candidates of centres with mass malpractices but who are deemed innocent, biometric non-verification machine related issues.
Others include technical and log out issues, late registration, incomplete results and candidates who lost examination sessions due to malfunctioning of servers at the affected centre.
The JAMB boss said the decision to allow the candidates sit for the JAMB Supplementary exam was reached after a thorough review of all the reports that emanated from their centres. Oloyede announced the blacklisting of 48 CBT centres found culpable of aiding cheating.
He said another 24 CBT centres had been suspended for one year for failing to live up to expectations. “The (24 CBT) centres will not participate in the 2018 UTME, but they can be reconsidered for 2019 and above.
