Spokesperson of JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, who made this known in a statement, on Thursday, in Abuja, said this was coming after a detailed investigation and careful analysis of the “highly successful” 2021 UTME, with due consultation with relevant stakeholders.

He said the consultation led to gracious concession given by the National Examination Council (NECO) concerning the timetable of the council’s ongoing Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE), for the UTME mop-up to hold.

“About 18,000 candidates slated for the examination are being notified through both text messages on their designated phone numbers and their JAMB profiles,” Benjamin said.

He said in addition that the affected candidate could check using their registration number on Jamb Mop-up

The statement read in part: “For the avoidance of doubt, no candidate whose result has been duly released will be rescheduled for another examination contrary to the sponsored fake news being circulated on the social (and few mischievous conventional) media.

“The rescheduled candidates are in the following categories: Candidates who could not be initially scheduled for examination owing to their inability to timely procure and supply their mandatory NINs or profile codes until after the close of the registration exercise and, therefore, had to purchase bank drafts ( as against the usual vending of PINs) after the scheduled period for the examination and were later registered.

peculiar biometric verification problem, or who failed biometric verification on the examination date (and were recaptured) but were not allowed to partake in the examination.

“Adequate screening arrangements have been made to reverify such claims and any candidate found to be involved in any form of impersonation will be identified for prosecution.

“Candidates who were unable to sit for the UTME owing to the clash of timetables of the UTME and the then ongoing National Business and Technical Education Board examinations and whose particulars have been verified and supplied directly to JAMB by NABTEB, and

“Candidates who have been ascertained by JAMB to have experienced genuine rescheduling/technical problems as was the case in 30 of the 760 centres used for the examination.

“The rescheduled candidates are to print fresh examination notification slips containing the venue and time of the examination. The slips are to be printed from the JAMB website using the candidates’ registration number from Sunday, 1st August 2021”.

The board advised candidates to avoid supplying their vital information including registration numbers to fraudsters who are abound especially in a cybercafe(s), tutorial centres springing up almost everywhere in the nation as a result of the illicit activities of examination syndicates.

Benjamin said the Computer Based Test (CBT) centres approved by JAMB which are consistently monitored are relatively more secured for printing examination notification slips by candidates who could not print such on their own.
