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.
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?
