The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has released the result statistics of the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The Board Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed that 1,989,668 candidates registered for the examinations held in 118 towns in 774 Computer-Based Test Centres (CBT).

According to the registrar, out of the registered candidates, 1,904,109 sat for the examination, while 80,810 were absent. 64,624 results were under investigation for various reasons, such as verification (2,896), procedural investigations (4,594), and prima facie established exam misconduct (78).

Other results under investigation were centre-based investigations involving 57,056 candidates in 18 centres across the country. The 18 centres listed for the investigation were 12 in Edo, three in Akwa Ibom, two in Delta, and one in Kwara State.

The Board witnessed a near-zero infraction situation in the 2024 UTME except for a few cases, which represent just a tiny fraction of what was reported last year. This is encouraging, and the board is poised to consolidate on the successes recorded.

Further statistics of the 2024 examination, showed that 8,401 candidates representing 0.5 per cent scored 300 and above; 77,070 candidates representing 4.2 per cent scored 250 and above. While 439,974 candidates, representing 24 per cent scored 200 and above, and 1,402,490 candidates, representing 76 per cent scored below 200.

A total of 1,989,668 candidates registered for the examination, 24.7 per cent higher than the figure for the year 2023. Of the 1,989,668 registered, 1,904,189 were present and verified, 2,899 were present but unverified, and 80,810 were absent.

There was a significant improvement in the enrolment of females, with over 1 million girls registering for the examination which is the first time in three years that the number of females will be more than that of their male counterparts.

Out of the total registration, 3,164 were persons living with disabilities. There is a 36.2 per cent increase in the enrolment of PLWDs as compared to last year.

The Board released the results of 1,842,464 candidates with 64, 624 results still under investigation and restricted the publishing of names of the best candidates, noting that this was to guide against the saga in its examination in 2023.

The registrar explained that in the course of the examination, 25 sessions experienced hiccups disrupting only 150 of the total 9, 156 sessions in 95 of the 774 centres.

The affected sessions were promptly rescheduled, and only one centre, Makama School of Technology, Old Motor Park, along FCCE Road, Bichi, Kano State, was delisted for substandard performance.

Candidates are urged to check their results starting at 7 am on Tuesday, 30th April 2024 by sending UTMERESULT to 55019 or 66019.
