Dr Benjamin said in his statement  "No fewer than 85,000 candidates are scheduled to write the examination,Affected candidates have been notified through text messages. “By this notice, they are advised to check their e-mail and profile for the schedule of their examination or visit the board’s website for their status"

According to him, candidates will soon be requested to print their e-slip for details which include date, venue and time of the examination.


The board noted that candidates that are not listed for the examination, would not be notify while those whose results are withheld would reflect in their profiles, which have been updated.

The board also advised rescheduled candidates to comport themselves and be of good behavior to avoid the circumstance that earlier prompted the cancellation of their previous examination.

It is better to let 100 offenders go free than to punish one innocent person,The board will enhance its monitoring of the examination as it will not compromise its sanctity.”


1.7 million candidates registered for the 2017 UTME in 633 centres across the country. The examination was conducted from May 13 to May 20 but the board cancelled the results of more than 50,000 candidates. It also delisted 48 Computer Based Testing centres over what was described as  organised malpractice.
