The board’s spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, released a statement regarding the CAILS-KWASU diploma program, stating, “After conducting high-stake meetings with the principal officers of the Kwara State College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies and the Kwara State University on the CAILS-KWASU diploma programme, the board has decided to carry out a special registration exercise for the 3,633 prospective candidates who did not participate in the 2024 UTME, under the presumption that they would be included in the 2024 DE exercise.”

He further added, “These candidates are advised to register at any of the approved CBT centres in Kwara, Oyo, and Osun states within the next week (ending on Monday, 10th June 2024) for the UTME.

The 469 candidates in this category who had already taken the 2024 UTME are not required to retake the examination. Their previous attempt is sufficient.”

According to the board, this concession was made to ensure that while maintaining standards, efforts are also being made to support and promote the aspirations of qualified and willing candidates.

The board stated that the affected CAILS-KWASU candidates would have the opportunity to write the UTME at the rescheduled examination dates on June 22, alongside some 20,550 candidates whose results are still under investigation and 2,702 candidates whose fingerprints could not be verified and were given the benefit of the doubt to sit the 2024 UTME.

JAMB further added, “The remaining 322 candidates have been moved to the category of candidates under examination misconduct as a prima-facie case has been established that those who had registered were not those who appeared for the examination. This notice does not concern candidates whose results have been released. Candidates with prima facie case(s) of examination misconduct will be further interrogated to establish their culpability, after which appropriate measures will be taken on them and announced.”
