He said other category of candidates who sat for the examination were those suspected to have been involved in examination malpractices during the main UTME but who were given a second chance to sit the examination.

The release said the exercise was marked by heightened security measures put in place by the Board to preclude any instance of examination infractions.

As such, some nefarious characters, who had attempted to impersonate bona fide candidates were apprehended and handed over to law enforcement agencies for further investigation and prosecution.

The statement further stated that the board would continue to ensure that no candidate benefits from infractions through the deployment of state-of-the-art technology before, during and after its examinations.

It read, “Candidates are, therefore, urged in their own interest to refrain from engaging in any form of irregularities during their examinations. They are also enjoined to desist from soliciting score upgrade from fraudsters or engage in the mutilation of their result sheets while trying to generate fake result sheets with higher scores.
