The Registrar/Chief Executive of JAMB,Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, stated this in Abuja, while announcing the release of the 2014 UTME results.

He said only 24 candidates scored 250 and above in the PPT while 23 candidates scored 250 and above in the DBT.

The JAMB boss while breaking down the result of her 6th edition of the UTME on the two modes, Ojerinde disclosed that in PPT, 275,282 candidates scored below 150, 122,157 scored 150-159; 115,456 scored 160-169, 315,401 candidates scored 170-199 while 108,488 candidates scored 200-249.

According to him, “In DBT, 2,471 candidates scored below 150, 2,830 scored 150-159, 3,808 scored 160-169; 6,678 candidates also scored between 170-199 while 1,309 candidates scored 200-249.

“A total of 990,179 candidates applied for PPT while 25,325 candidates applied for DBT which amounts to 1,015,504 applicants”.

Prof Ojerinde said universities have highest number of applicants as first choice as not less than 995,901 candidates choose universities as their first choice of institution, 13, 761 candidates choose polytechnics as first choice; 20, 558 opted for colleges of education while 32 candidates choose innovative enterprise institute as their first choice.

Speaking on the conduct of the exams, Prof Ojerinde said “the examination was one of the most successfully conducted exercise ever by the Board”.

He said from the two modes of exam conducted, there was a total of 36,164 invalid results, 2,494 results were with-held by the board for further scrutinising while 37,315 candidates were absent form the exams.

Also, a total of one thousand, eight hundred and sixty-five centres were used for the conduct of PPT and one hundred and thirty-three centres were used for DBT across the federal.
“In this year’s exercise the Board experienced a remarkable decrease in the number of applicants that registered for the PPT.

“This reduction in number is attributed to the growing confidence of candidates in the Computer Based Test (CBT), which definitely will be full blown by 2015.
“Please take note, the 2014 CBT exercise will take place from Saturday, 17th May, 2014 to Saturday, 31st May, 2014″, he said.

On exhibits recovered from centres during the exams, Ojerinde said this year witnessed a decrease in candidates’ desperation and incidences of malpractice were not rampant unlike last year.

He however said over a dozen handsets, irregular answer sheets among others were found on candidates.

Ojerinde however disclosed that a medical doctor who sat for the exam for his wife was caught in Jigawa state and the matter he said would be reported to the Nigerian Barr Association (NBA).

He said candidates are to check their results on-line via the Board’s website: www.jambresult.comusing their registration numbers.

All the exam centres indicted in malpractice and extortion would be sanctioned by the Board.
