JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in an interview said about 80,000 candidates, who could not sit for the 2023 UTME within their scheduled time owing to no fault of theirs, sat for the rescheduled UTME across the country.
He said candidates affected included those who were verified at their centres but could not sit for the examination, those who could not be biometrically verified and those with mismatched data, among others.
He noted that the deployment of innovations in the conduct of the examination paid off bountifully as the exercise recorded the lowest reported cases of infractions.
