Some of the candidates who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) have expressed displeasure over the non-release of the results by the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB), Concise News reports.
This online news medium understands that JAMB has said it is yet to release the 2019 UTME results due to some biometric issues it is handling.
However, this delay since the examination took place in the second week of April, has caused panic among some of the candidates.
“With everything we are hearing from JAMB and other media reports we are getting, we are tensed,” a candidate Madueke John, told NAN in Abuja on Sunday.
“I know I did not do anything that will incriminate me during the exams but the entire process this time around has really changed.
“If JAMB, while screening, discovers those who are innocent, why don’t they release those ones and continue screening others, seriously, this is taking forever.
“I really don’t know what to expect again, but please, they should just focus on this year’s exercise and release at least parts of the results to reduce the tension.”
Also speaking, another person who sat for the 2019 UTME, Henrietta Adams, said: “Even if you are sure you did not commit any malpractice during the exercise, with the way the entire process is going, one is forced to start thinking if one’s result will be held for mere turning his or her head during the examination.
“I truly don’t know what to say or expect again, I am just confused if at least some results were released in parts like last year, then at least, one will be hopeful but as it is, only God knows what they may come up with next.
“We will continue to wait but please JAMB, do something soonest.”
This is as a candidate’s parent, Joseph Onimisi, hailed JAMB for exposing corruption in the system with the 2019 UTME.
