Determined to give equal opportunity to all candidates desirous of tertiary education, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has scheduled Saturday, 6th August 2022, for its Mop-up UTME.
It should be noted that, as is the custom with the Board after every Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), the various reports from its officials in the field and video footage of the examination are reviewed by its team of experts, with a view to detecting activities subversive of the examination process.
It is after all the reports have been collated and considered that the Management would take critical decisions as to the necessity or otherwise of a mop-up examination for which category of candidates.
After a thorough analysis of the conduct of the 2022 UTME in 10 centres spread across five states of the federation (as listed below), where examination malpractice was established to have taken place, it became necessary to cancel the results of all the candidates who sat the examination in the ten centres.
The Board also took cognizance of the fact that some innocent candidates unfortunately sat their examination at these centres. Consequently, all candidates who sat the UTME in the centres listed below have been rescheduled for the 6th of August 2022 Mop-up UTME.
It should be noted that candidates who, for whatever reasons, were absent at those centres are NOT eligible for the mop-up examination. The Centres are:
