A supplementary 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for 24,535 students has been planned on Saturday, June 22, 2024, according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The Board’s spokesman, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, revealed this to reporters in Abuja on Sunday.

Benjamin stated that applicants who are affected by the postponed examination would have enough time to be ready for it, as it will now take place in two weeks.

According to him, the applicants for the CAILS-KWASU Diploma program come from Kwara State University (KWASU) and the Kwara State College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies (CAILS).

The remaining applicants include around 20,550 whose results are still being investigated, and 2,702 whose fingers could not be validated but were granted permission to take the 2024 UTME anyhow.

He stated that because it was evident from the prima facie that the individuals who had registered were not the ones who took the exam, the remaining 322 applicants had been moved to the category of candidates under examination misconduct.

According to him, there have been 431 examination misconduct cases, up from 322 in the previous year.

Benjamin said that 3,921 more exceptional results from the 2024 UTME had been issued by the board.

“The Board has painstakingly analysed the process and conduct of the 2024 UTME in some centres where there are strong proofs of substantial non-compliance with the Board’s standards.

“Consequently, 24,535 candidates have been rescheduled to retake the examination in their chosen examination towns on Saturday, June 22, 2024.

“Meanwhile, 3,921 outstanding 2024 UTME results that had been cleased have now been released.

“Therefore, concerned candidates are urged to check their results from Saturday, June 1, 2024, by sending RESULT to 55019 or 66019 to ascertain their status, as those cleared would have their results while those rescheduled would be told that they had been rescheduled” he said.

In order to find out their assigned testing locations, he asked the applicants who were rescheduled to print their notification sheet for the additional exam starting on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.

He noted that with the publication of the extra 3,921 results, 1,883,350 results have been disclosed overall.

But he clarified that candidates whose results had already been made public were not covered by this warning.

He continued by saying that applicants who seemed to have engaged in examination misconduct would be subjected to additional questioning to determine their level of responsibility, following which appropriate action would be taken and made public.

Additionally, he stated that the Board has decided to cancel the Direct Entry (DE) registration on Monday, June 17, 2024, in response to several stakeholders’ and authorities’ requests for an extension of the DE registration through 2024.

Benjamin said in order to facilitate the wrap-up of the registration, it had expanded the DE registration points beyond the Professional Registration Centres (PRCs) owned by JAMB.
