According to the statement, the candidates will retake the examination in their chosen examination towns.

The JAMB Spokesperson said the candidates whose UTME was rescheduled include some 20,550 of candidates whose results were still under investigation and 2,702 others whose fingers could not be verified but were given the benefit of doubts to sit the 2024 UTME.

He disclosed that the exam was also rescheduled for 3,633 candidates of Kwara State College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies, CAILS, and the Kwara State University, KWASU, on the CAILS-KWASU Diploma programme, who did not participate in the 2024 UTME based on the assumption that they would be accommodated in the 2024 DE exercise.

“The remaining 322 candidates have been migrated to the category of candidates under examination misconduct as a prima-facie case has clearly been established that those who had registered were not those who appeared for the examination. Consequently, the number of examination misconduct has increased by 322 to 431,” he said.

Fabian urged the rescheduled candidates to print their supplementary Examination Notification Slip from Tuesday, 4th June, 2024 to ascertain their designated examination centres.

Meanwhile, 3,921 outstanding 2024 UTME results had been cleared by the board and have now been released, bringing the total results released to 1,883,350.

“Therefore, concerned candidates are urged to check their results from Saturday,1st June,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.

“Candidates with prima facie case(s) of examination misconduct, would be further interrogated to establish their culpability after which appropriate measures would be taken on them and announced,” he said.
