Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has informed three categories of candidates who couldn’t not sit for their exams due to technical glitch, mismatched data, biometric failure.
This information was included in the meeting minutes from the emergency management meeting that took place over the weekend in Abuja.
The examination body also noted that three categories of candidates who missed their examinations had been rescheduled for mop-up examinations.
“All candidates, who could not sit the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time owing to no fault of theirs, would be rescheduled to take the examination on Saturday, 6th May, 2023.
Candidates under these categories are principally those who were verified at their centres but could not sit the examination; those who could not be biometrically verified, and those with mismatched data,”
“On the first day of the 2023 UTME, a number of candidates in some centres could not sit the examination as well as in some centres in subsequent days due to diverse reasons. Though a reasonable number of them have been rescheduled and have taken the examination, some are yet to take their examination.
“As part of the decisions reached at the end of an emergency management meeting held on Sunday, 31st April 2023, the Board has fixed Saturday, 6th May 2023, for all categories of candidates who have not sat their examination, as listed below, to take their examination,” the board said,”
