This was revealed by Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s head of media and information in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Monday, March 16 according to The Nation . He urged all candidates to check their profiles for the results. According to him, the exam board expressed optimism that the exercise will be hitch-free, as it has worked assiduously to ensure that this year’s examination process will be one of the best ever conducted in recent times.
He said: “I want to say that the Board is happy with the conduct of the examination on its first day, Saturday, March 14. This is not to say that we did not register one or two technical hitches. There is no way anyone can embark on such massive exercise without a few hitches. However, the good thing is that, as soon as our attention is drawn to such hitches, we tackle them immediately. So, the Board is fully on ground to take on these hitches as they come, but in all, I must tell you, that we are happy with the conduct of the examination so far.’’
