Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB Supplementary Exam Date for 2017 UTME Candidates Has Been Announced. The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, will hold a supplementary computer based exam for 2017/2018 UTME candidates on Saturday, 1st July, 2017.
The JAMB’s Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, who made the disclosure at a news conference on Wednesday, said the exam is a second chance for some candidates who were deemed innocent of centre-induced exam cheating.
The supplementary exam, he said is mostly for candidates who registered late for this year’s UTME.
Oloyede added that some of the candidates whose results were cancelled, would also take part in the rescheduled exam.
He listed the categories of candidates whose results were cancelled but would take part in the rescheduled examination to include candidates of centres with mass malpractices but who are deemed innocent, biometric non-verification machine related issues.
Others include technical and log out issues, late registration, incomplete results and candidates who lost examination sessions due to malfunctioning of servers at the affected centre.
The JAMB boss said the decision to allow the candidates sit for the rescheduled examination was reached after a thorough review of all the reports that emanated from their centres.
