The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has sought to clarify their new law on prospective candidates awaiting results.
Initial reports seem to suggest that the examination body had barred candidates without their Ordinary Level results from sitting for the UTME exams.
However, JAMB stated on its Twitter page on Wednesday, that candidates who were awaiting results must have gotten their results at the point of admission into their institution.
The update read: “JAMB has NOT scrapped Awaiting result for prospective candidates for the forthcoming exam.
“Candidates with Awaiting results can apply. But they must have gotten their results at the point of admission into their institution.
“If you apply with Awaiting Result at the point of registration, your result must be available while u go for screening for admission.
“JAMB will not deny any Candidate the right to quality education. Please don’t be misguided. Part of the press statement was misunderstood
“That is why during registration those with results will be uploading their results,while Awaiting Result candidates will not upload anything.”
