JAMB 2018 results seized: Out of about 1.6 million candidates that participated in the 2018 JAMB UTME exam, most of the results have been released. However, JAMB is currently withholding 111,981 results.
According to JAMB the reason for withholding some of the post UTME results is malpractices by some CBT centers and also by individual candidates.
In the case where the JAMB CBT center engaged in malpractice, the entire results for the center is cancelled. If on the other hand it’s individual candidates, the candidates results are seized.
JAMN boss explains why some of the 2018 JAMB results were seized
“Some of the malpractices were centre-induced,” Mr. Benjamin said. “So entire centres were cancelled. Some are individual cases. There are centres that colluded with candidates. Maybe their owners collected monies from the candidates and were dictating answers. They were caught on camera.
“There were candidates who went into the examination halls with materials that were banned. Telephone handsets and other materials were found on some of them.
