As the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is perfecting plan to release results of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) which commenced on Thursday 11th of April, some candidates may be stunned by changes in their scores.
Checks by Concise News reveal that in the past two editions of UTME, some candidates have had to complain about their score changing. For example, you check your UTME result today, and you see your score is say 252. You check again moments later, and you discover your score has decreased to say 233. In some instances, the score increases and some candidate feel it’s their luck.
Well, you do not have to panic. How do you determine your authentic result?
JAMB seems well-prepared to address the problem that reduced candidates’ scores or performance in the past years, according to information obtained by this news medium from the exam body’s past Twitter live chat.
Khadijah Adebola, a candidate in the 2018 exam explains to Concise News: “I wrote my JAMB early. Those that wrote theirs late are the ones their result is interchanging. They will check it in the afternoon, it will bring a score. They will check it like an hour later, it will bring out another score. It was those people that wrote it late that the error is affecting them. But as for me, I wrote mine early, so I don’t have that error.
“I think it was the first score that it brought out, that is the original score. It was the very first score that when they first checked that is accepted by JAMB.”
Hence, the result JAMB and the institutions you picked recognise is the score that appeared when you first checked. That is the result registered on JAMB’s database. That is your genuine UTME result.
