The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) yesterday said candidates who sat for the Computer Based Test (CBT) and were yet to receive their results should check the internet.
In her reaction to complaints of missing results, Supervisor, Yaba College of Technology (YabaTech) CBT centre, Lagos, Mrs. Ebere Okeke, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that incorrect GSM number might cause the delay or missing result. The supervisor also said in most cases, the delay could be caused by delay in processing of the result or network problem, but noted that it was nothing to worry about.
She said the problem might also be caused by individual negligence and candidates who did not carefully fill their numbers during registration.
Okeke said the CBT mode was devoid of missing results, adding that the computers will mark immediately the candidates start writing the examination. She said candidates who sat for the CBT examination would receive their results within 48 hours through their phone Short Message Service (SMS).
According to Okeke, during registration, candidates fill GSM numbers that the results of their examination will be sent to, but some candidates submit wrong numbers in the process.
“Some candidates are experiencing delay or have not received their results because they submitted wrong or incorrect GSM numbers.
“Some candidates have either misplaced their numbers or changed them; as such, the computer could not deliver the result after the examination,” she said.
