Do you want to find out all about the JAMB Resit 2022 process and how to access the portal.jamb.gov.ng/i-failed? Then you are on the right page. Here we will be giving you all the information you need to know.
Why The Need For JAMB Resit?
It is no longer news that the 2022 JAMB results have been generally poor compared to previous sessions. There have been various explanations given for this.
While some quarters hold that the candidates were not well-prepared. Others maintain that the examinations did not follow the given syllabus, hence the failures. In all these, some other candidates still managed to do well which goes to exonerate JAMB in a way.
So, why was the JAMB resit necessary or supposedly proposed? The major reason the JAMB resit was brought up was to provide a platform through which some of the candidates who performed poorly could make up for their failures.
In other words, the JAMB resit was supposed to be a follow-up examination for some candidates to boost their JAMB scores by sitting for a complimentary examination.
JAMB Resit 2024 Portal: portal.jamb.gov.ng/i-failed How Real?
The above website has been making the rounds in the media as the portal for the JAMB resit registration. JAMB had therefore decided to come out and clarify its position on the resit information and the portal too.
Was News of The JAMB Resit True or False?
The news of the JAMB resit took so many people by surprise. This is because never in the history of JAMB has it ever been done. But due to the situation on ground, many thought it might have been a new policy. The news had gone viral within a very short time.
Some people had even gone ahead to seek to register for the resit. Some may have been exploited in the name of such registration. All these happened before JAMB released an official statement concerning the resit.
What Is JAMB’s position on the Resit?
So, what did JAMB come out to say on the resit? According to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination held in 2022 from the 19th of June remains valid and the results entirely accepted.
This invariably means that whatever a candidate scored has been recorded by JAMB. The implication of this is that there is no plan by JAMB to set any other exams to help any candidate upgrade JAMB scores.
The body hereby advises the candidates and the general public to ignore any information contrary to what it says. News of the resit is not from JAMB and neither the portal.
This means that the news of the JAMB resit was false. It was just an attempt by some people to deceive the candidates and perhaps exploit them.
What Next for the Candidates?
If you are a seasoned follower of JAMB and its policies, then you would recall that a similar scenario played out some years back. Candidates had performed so poorly in the exams and JAMB did something about it.
So what did JAMB do? In order to help the candidates, JAMB had reviewed its cut off marks for institutions. This was a downward review that allowed candidates to apply for admissions into certain courses within certain institutions with lower scores than it used to allow for previously.
As such, one could apply to study in state universities with a score of 160 rather than the hitherto 180. Already, JAMB has hinted that it might do the same this year.
We, therefore, advise the candidates not to rush into taking actions that they would regret. They should keep calm and wait for JAMB to make its decisions first and they would then know what to do.
Therefore, to stay up-to-date on what JAMB comes up with, endeavour to visit this page regularly or simply bookmark it for quick access as we will ensure you do not miss out on any important information as it drops from JAMB.
