Additional 36,540 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination results, earlier withheld for further investigation, have been released by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Tuesday to a total of 1,879,437 results, adding the 531 results released in the previous week.

The board’s spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in a statement released Tuesday night.

JAMB, in the statement, denied reports circulating on social media, purporting to emanate from it that the outstanding 2024 UTME results, currently being subjected to intense scrutiny by its team of experts, had been compromised on account of a cyber security breach and that it was considering rescheduling the examination.

It asked the public to disregard the report, saying it was created by fraudsters who were out to dupe the unsuspecting members of the public.

The statement partly read, “In another development, the attention of the board was drawn to a fictitious letter concocted by a fraudster and circulated on social media purporting to emanate from the board stating that the outstanding 2024 UTME results, currently being subjected to intense scrutiny by its team of experts, had been compromised on account of a cyber security breach and that it is considering rescheduling the examination.

“This is far from the truth as the letter did not emanate from the board. A closer look at the letter, which any person did not sign, lacked every ingredient of a letter from the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board. The letter is, therefore, from those who wish to destroy the board’s integrity by compromising its unassailable operational processes to mislead hapless candidates with the sole aim of extorting them.

“The board reiterated, for the umpteenth time, that the results of its 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and other previous years are intact, not in any cloud storage, and can, therefore, not be hacked by anybody.

“It is to be recalled that at the release of the 2024 UTME, the board had announced that some results had been withheld as they were being subjected to further investigation. Out of these, 531 results were released recently. Others found to be involved in any examination misconduct are still undergoing investigation as the board would want to review all the footage of all CCTV cameras placed in all its accredited centers to ascertain the candidate’s guilt or otherwise.

“After this exercise, the board would publish its findings. Therefore, the public is urged to be wary of misleading information from sources not linked to the Board, be it religious or other sources.”
