JAMB Releases 2024 UTME Results, 76% Scores Below 200

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), with 64,624 results currently under investigation. This was disclosed by the Board Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, during a press briefing in Bwari.

A total of 1,989,668 candidates registered for the examinations across 774 Computer Based Test Centres (CBT) in 118 towns. Out of these, 1,904,109 candidates sat for the exam, while 80,810 were absent.

Regarding the investigation of results, 64,624 results are being probed for various reasons, including verification (2,896 cases), procedural investigations (4,594 cases), and exam misconduct (78 cases). Center-based investigations are also ongoing, involving 57,056 candidates across 18 centers in Edo (12 centers), Akwa Ibom (3 centers), Delta (2 centers), and Kwara (1 center).

Prof. Oloyede highlighted a significant reduction in infractions compared to previous years, with only a few isolated cases reported. Notably, 8,401 candidates (0.5%) scored 300 and above, while 77,070 candidates (4.2%) scored 250 and above. Additionally, 439,974 candidates (24%) scored 200 and above, while 1,402,490 candidates (76%) scored below 200.

Withheld Results

JAMB’s registrar highlighted that 78 withheld results are under investigation for alleged examination misconduct, 4,594 for procedural issues, 2,896 for verification, and 57,056 for centre-based investigations across 18 centres in Edo, Akwa Ibom, Delta, and Kwara.

The registrar noted a decline in examination infractions since the introduction of computer-based tests almost a decade ago, with only 78 cases of misconduct reported in the recent UTME. He emphasized that these cases mainly involved impersonation and smuggling of devices into the examination hall.

JAMB remains committed to maintaining this trend through the automation of its processes, starting from registration and examination to admission. The registrar expressed optimism about achieving minimal infractions in the future based on the encouraging results observed in the 2024 UTME.

Fractions Affected by Hitches & Glitches

Mr. Oloyede noted that out of 9,156 examination sessions, only 25 had issues, affecting 150 sessions across 95 of the 774 centers. The disrupted sessions were rescheduled promptly. Makama School of Technology in Kano State was delisted due to substandard performance.
