''Also, 112,331 results have yet to be released out of which 350 are the results of visually impaired candidates which will be released soon and 111,981 results withheld for further screening. The figure above excludes foreign candidates whose examination will be conducted in April,”

Why the results were withheld

Explaining reasons why the results were withheld, Benjamin told newsmen on Thursday, March 22, 2018, that some candidates attempted to change computer IP addresses while others smuggled banned items into the exam hall.

The JAMB's spokesman also said some CBT centre operators colluded with candidates, collected money from them and dictated answers to them during the exam.
