The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed its readiness to conduct fresh examinations for some of the candidates who sat its 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) but whose results were withheld over alleged cases of examination malpractices.
JAMB had on March 20 while announcing the release of the results of the examination declared that the results of a total of 111,981 candidates were being withheld over cases of malpractices and would not rush to release the results.
But in an exclusive interview with New Telegraph on Monday, the Head of Media and Public Relations of JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin disclosed that as part of efforts to ensure fairness and justice, the examination body was prepared to reschedule some of the candidates whose results had been withheld due to their alleged involvement in malpractices.
