The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Tuesday released results of 200,000 candidates who had written the examination even as the test continued.
The Registrar/Chief Executive Officer of JAMB, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, disclosed this during the monitoring of the exercise in Abuja and its environs.
He explained that over 200,000 candidates’ results had been released since the examination commenced on Saturday.
Ojerinde urged candidates who had sat for the examination to visit the JAMB’s website and check their respective results.
According to him, “More than one million, eight hundred and fifty thousand candidates applied to take the examination nationwide in 2016.
“The figures however recorded a slight increase of 113,673 candidates who applied for the examination in 2015.”
JAMB kick-started full Computer Based Testing (CBT) in 2014 after eliminating the Paper Pencil Testing (PPT) system within that same period.
Prof. Ojerinde further informed journalists that government had reached out to the National Communications Commission (NCC) to produce at least four new CBT centres annually.
“National Communications Commission has been mandated to give us at least four centres every year.
Meanwhile, the first four are fully completed, the next four would soon be built and with time every nook and crannies of the country will have functional CBT centres,” Ojerinde said.
