UTME Failure: See how students cheat in Nigeria

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has released the results of the 2012 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, with only three candidates scoring above 300.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the results of 27,266 candidates across eight states were withheld for various reasons.

This was stated by JAMB Registrar/Chief Executive, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, at a news conference in Abuja.

A total of 1,503,931 candidates were registered for the 2012 UTME, which held across the country on March 24, making it the one with the highest number of registered candidates since the existence of JAMB.

Reasons most where withheld can be seen in the display pictures by Pro. Ojerinde before press men.

Mobile Phones stuck in foot wear to enable students Cheat

Falling standard of infrastructural facilities in the education sectors, the poorly motivated teaching staff, and the general indiscipline in the society where everyone wants the easy way out, are the possible reasons?

  1. For candidates to undergo UTME is making Waec un important in nigeria why won’t they cheat to get there,I think it should be scrapped!

  2. Yeah, they quickly displayed their catch. If our educational system has dropped to the lowest point, then someone deserved to pay for the inefficiency. Every sector of Nigerian economy has failed and still on a free fall. Nigeria is big and should be runned like a conglomerate of indepedent countries. Don’t rob Peter to pay Paul. Let each region control their Resource!!! It is the answer to all social ills
