He expressed satisfaction with the general conduct of the 2020 UTME across the country, saying, “the Board is happy with the conduct of the examination on its first day, Saturday, March 14.”
He further said: “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,’’ he said.
He called on candidates who took the exam on Saturday to check the results through their profiles.
While expressing confidence that the rest of the exercise would be hitch-free going by the level of preparedness, Dr. Benjamin said that JAMB was determined to ensure quality service delivery.
