JAMB: UTME Rescheduled In 100 Centres Over Glitches


Due to technical difficulties on Tuesday, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has delayed the current 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for candidates in 100 Computer Based Test (CBT) centers.

JAMB made the announcement in a statement by its Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin on Tuesday night in Abuja.

AllNews Nigeria reports that of the 1.6 million candidates expected to take the examination, some of them sat for the exam successfully while others were delayed especially due to technical issues experienced.

“Following the announcement, candidates, who for technical reasons could not take the examination, are to print a new examination notification early tomorrow morning, Wednesday, 26th April 2023, to know their new scheduled sessions.

“It is to be noted that about 100 centres out of the 708 centres participating in the 2023 UTME exercise across the country, experienced technical challenges that prevented their allotted candidates from successfully taking their examination,” the statement read.

The Board’s statement further noted that the glitches experienced were due to the new features it deployed to guide against examination misconduct, reiterating its commitment to deploy world-class assessments in line with global best practices.
