According to the registrar, out of the registered candidates, 1,904,109 sat for the examination. 80,810 were absent.

He explained that 64,624 results were under investigation for various reasons, such as verification (2,896), procedural investigations (4,594), and prima facie established exam misconduct (78).

He said other results under investigation were centre-based investigations involving 57,056 candidates in 18 centres across the country.

The 18 centres listed for the investigation were 12 in Edo, three in Akwa Ibom, two in Delta, and one in Kwara State.

“The Board witnessed a near-zero infraction situation in the 2024 UTME except for a few cases, which represent just a tiny fraction of what was reported last year.

“This is encouraging, and the board is poised to consolidate on the successes recorded,” he said.

While giving analysis of the results, Oloyede said 8,401 candidates representing 0.5 per cent scored 300 and above; 77,070 candidates representing 4.2 per cent scored 250 and above.
