It should be noted that, as is the Board’s custom after each Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), the various reports from its officials in the field and video footage of the examination are reviewed by its team of experts in an effort to identify activities subversive to the examination process. The Management would determine the necessity of a mop-up examination for which group of candidates only after all the reports have been compiled and reviewed.
Following an extensive review into the conduct of the 2022 UTME in 10 centres spread across five states of the federation (as mentioned below), where examination malpractice was discovered, it became necessary to cancel the results of all candidates who sat the examination in the ten centres.
The Board also noted that some innocent candidates were required to take their exams at these venues.
As a result, all candidates who took the UTME at the following centers have been rescheduled for the Mop-up UTME on August 6, 2022. Candidates who were unable to attend such centers for whatever reason are ineligible for the mop-up examination. The following are the centers:
