The JAMB Head of Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said in a statement that the 321 cancelled results belonged to candidates, whose “culpability has been firmly established, thus necessitating the cancellation of their results. The candidates are being notified.”
Benjamin said, “In consonance with the promise made by the board that it would further probe the identities and involvement of some candidates who were suspected of being involved in one examination infraction or the other, the board has further cleared and released the results of 15,490 candidates in this category.
The release followed the expert review of the cases of this category of candidates who were requested to upload certain credentials for scrutiny.
“Furthermore, four additional Computer-Based Test centres were found culpable and were delisted.”
The board noted that it was saddened by the discovery of examination syndicates and the depth of their nefarious activities across the country, adding that it had renewed its commitment to end UTME malpractices.
