We won’t reconsider candidates who missed UTME due to personal fault -Oloyede

Registrar of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has declared that the exam body won’t take responsibility for any UTME candidate that missed their examination due to their own fault.

Speaking after monitoring the examination at Kaduna Polytechnic on Wednesday (today), Oloyede said, “JAMB cannot spend tens of millions of the nation’s resources to reorganise a session for a few candidates who missed the exams due to their personal recklessness.

“Most of those candidates who missed the UTME are students from hostels who were made to register through schools because of the money the schools wanted to collect from the parents in the name of JAMB.

“So, those who have missed the exam for reasons not caused by the examination body should forget about it.”

Oloyede disclosed tahat this year, 1.94 million candidates are writing UTME; and that by the end of today, there would be less than 100,000 candidates waiting to take their exams.

“By the end of today, what will be remaining will be Lagos, Makurdi and other few places in the country,” he enthused.

The Registrar also commended parents for their behaviour during the conduct of the ongoing 2024 UTME exercise, noting that there has been no parental intrusion, unlike the previous year when some parents flocked to the various computer-based centres during the exams.

“There is no report this year of parents intruding, except in one state. In that state, they felt that since the first session failed, their children should not continue with the second or other sessions,” he added.
