JAMB releases first 2020 UTME results

JUST IN: JAMB, stakeholders settle for 160 as cut-off mark for admission

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday released the results of 312,000 candidates who sat for 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Saturday.

The Board’s Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this to journalists in Lagos.

He urged all concerned candidates to check their profiles for the results.

Benjamin said: “The Board is optimistic that the entire exercise will be hitch-free, as it has worked assiduously to ensure that this year’s examination process will be one of the best ever conducted in recent times.

“I want to say that the Board is happy with the conduct of the examination on its first day, Saturday, March 14.

“This is not to say that we did not register one or two technical hitches.

“There is no way anyone can embark on such massive exercise without a few hitches.

“However, the good thing is that, as soon as our attention is drawn to such hitches, we tackle them immediately.

“So, the Board is fully on ground to take on these hitches as they come, but in all, I must tell you, that we are happy with the conduct of the examination so far.”
