First, we heard that over 1.8 Million Candidates applied for the 2013 JAMB UTME and our institutions can only admit 520,000. Now, Statistics from the recently announced JAMB 2013 UTME Result gives some shocking revelations (as far as I am concerned but we were made to know by JAMB that this result marks an improvement over the JAMB 2012 UTME Result).
A total of 1,629,102 candidates applied to sit for the Paper Pencil Test (PPT), while 15,008 candidates applied for the Dual Based Test, bringing the number of candidates to 1,644,110.
“Ten candidates scored 300 marks and above, while 127,017 candidates scored between 1-159 marks.
“About 40,692 candidates’ results were invalid due to either multiple shading or no shading at all. After processing all the results, the board also discovered that about 47,974 candidates were absent.“
I hope we will continue to mark improvements every year.
