Only 47 per cent out of the 1,015,504 candidates that wrote the 2014 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted on Paper Pencil Test (PPT) and Dual Based Test (DBT) scored 250 marks and above out of a maximum 400 marks.
This was disclosed by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), which released the result today.
The exam took place last Saturday, with JAMB promising to release the result within four days. A total of 1,606,753 candidates applied for the examination, which held in 392 examination towns in Nigeria and seven foreign centres.
It did not, however, hold in Nigeria’s troubled North-East because of the Boko Haram insurgency in the region, with JAMB promising to organise it for the 400 candidates from the area at a later date.
