132 Jamb Results Remarked..failure Still Derived!..how Come?? by phemmyjohnson: 8:30am On Jun 11, 2013
Bwari (FCT) - The Joint Admission and Matriculation
Board (JAMB) on Monday reacted to the 192
complaints received from candidates who sat for the
2013 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination
The Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, at a meeting in
Abuja with some of the candidates who filed the
complaints, said it was imperative to clear the doubt
of the public about the UTME. Ojerinde said that
there was an open complaint from the media which
amounted to a threat to the integrity of the
organisation. He said that out of the 192 candidates
who filed their complaints, 132 candidates requested
that their examination scripts be remarked, while 63
requested to see their examination scripts. “We are
sure of what they scored, we are sure of the situation
and we are sure of the true position of things, even
with those who claimed that we did not release their
results. “But in the final analysis, you can see that
they did not shade their subjects correctly, how can
we release a result that is not known to us?. “That
was why we told the candidates to come on June 10
to see their papers and here we are, together with
the complainants. “We have been showing them
their papers and so far, nobody has won. I can bet
you, the damage done to our integrity is what we
have come to protect.’’
The registrar, who reiterated JAMB’s determination to
ensure transparency and accountability in the
conduct of its examinations, added that “we have to
be able to tell the people how we conducted the
exams and how we scored them.
The JAMB boss said the organisation was not
responsible for the failure of any candidate in the
2013 UTME, stressing that rather, the failure was due
to double shedding and not following proper
instructions as required. He commended the
aggrieved candidates for their boldness in writing
their complaints to JAMB. He directed that any
complainant who must have paid the requested
amount for the verification should be refunded.
Meanwhile, some of the complainants told the News
Agency of Nigeria (NAN) after the meeting that they
were not pleased with the way and manner the UTME
was conducted. A complainant, Miss Chiamaka
Nnadika, said she was not satisfied even after seeing
her examination script. Nnadika, however,
commended JAMB for the steps taken to call for such
an exercise. “Such a meeting should also be held in
the states, instead of people travelling from the east
and the north to come to Abuja. “It will be better if
JAMB will organise such meetings in the 36 states of
the federation so that people will understand their
issues better.’’ Another complainant, Mrs Queen
Wuhu, said she was not happy about the turnout of
things. “I was wondering why I failed my JAMB, that
was why I wrote a complaint letter to JAMB that I
wish to see my answer script but I was shocked with
the findings that I was actually the one who made
the mistake by double shedding. “That means I am
going to lose this year again, I will work harder next
Also present at the meeting were representatives of
the Public Complaints Commission and the
Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC).
