The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has announced the release of the 2010 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, conducted last Saturday, but yet to decide highest scorer.
JAMB Registrar, Professor Dibu Ojerinde who disclosed this yesterday while releasing the result at a press conference in Abuja, said, best candidate in the UTME examination conducted barely week ago could not be announced because â€œresults of 48,188 candidates are still being screened before release or otherwiseâ€.
Professor Ojerinde said results of 20,780 centresÂ across 36 states are being withheld for alleged examination malpractices noting that candidates found wanting after thorough investigation would have their results cancelled.
Bayelsa, Rivers and Lagos states with 5442, 3302 and 2847 cases of examination topped the list of states where examination malpractices.
