The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results would be released next week. Concise News learned that spokesman for the examination body, Fabian Benjamin, made this known Sunday in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial centre. Benjamin, who disclosed in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the results ‘are all ready,’ said JAMB would reach out to candidates through their phone lines as soon as all the results of the 2019 UTME were ratified. But he did not state, based on the report by NAN, the exact day the results would be released.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has begun an investigation of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). According to the Nation, the investigation, which covers 2010 to 2016, was launched over alleged N8.7billion fraud in the board. Concise News learnt that some zonal and state coordinators, as well as a female accountant, Philomena Chise, who claimed that a snake swallowed N36million from the sales of e-facility cards, are to be grilled. Chise later told EFCC operatives that the said N36milion was disbursed as an I-Owe-You advance to cash-strapped staff.
A group of candidates that sat for the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) have donated several food items to the Citadel of Grace Mission International Orphanage Home in Igando, Lagos. Concise News reports that the over 150 candidates attend Success Mandate Pre-Varsity Academy which organises an annual Mandate to Save-A-Soul Project to orphanage homes. Items donated by the candidates include bags of rice, tubers of yam, vegetable oil, noodles, custard, toiletries and baby care products.
There is a big difference between (ordinary) Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) result and the one called ORIGINAL JAMB RESULT. The original Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result is absolutely needed – especially when you have been offered provisional admission by your choice institution. Concise News reports that original JAMB result will display more information than notification of result. It will further show your passport photo and the Schools of choice and courses chosen. While candidates usually print the JAMB result for about N200 at local cafes, printing Original result will cost around N1,700. This price change is because the original result involves paying N1,000 to JAMB (excluding online/Remita charges). It is noteworthy that it has to be printed in colour which will increase a café’s service charge. Printing Original JAMB result does not have to be immediately. It will only become paramount when your Post-UTME registration and school’s admission exercise begins or after being offered admission.
