JAMB has fixed 1st July for 62,140 Candidates to Rewrite the 2017 UTME.
The former results of these candidates have therefore been cancelled due to examination malpractice.
This was confirmed by JAMB boss in person of Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, at a press briefing after the board’s management meeting in Abuja.
The 62,140 cancelled results include 57,646 candidates in centres-induced malpractice, 3,811 late registration, and 683 candidates who had biometric challenges.
Oloyede also explained that the rescheduled examination was for candidates of centres with mass examination malpractice while the candidates are being deemed innocent due to the centers owners whom want to make money in a dubious way.

48 accredited centres earlier have therefore been banned from conducting any future JAMB exam, as a result of gross technical deficiencies, extortion from candidates, organised examination malpractice and other damaging infractions, as concluded by JAMB.
24 other centres were suspended from next year’s JAMB for not meeting expectations required for the success of the exam in their centres.
We believe the candidates to re-write their exams will be duly notified via email, and may be required to reprint their JAMB Exam Slip in due time.
Congrats to all those who now have their results, as we await the 2017/2018 Admission Screening Process.
And also congrats to those whom will be allowed to Rewrite the 2017 UTME exam.
