What Will Happen If I Don't Submit My UTME?

JAMB logo
Some students wouldn't submit their JAMB UTME after the papers. For some, their time was out while there were questions not yet answered. For some, the computers shut down before completing the tests. For others, they were logged out after their time was out without allowing them to click submit buttons.

If you fall into any of the above categories or your case is similar, what will be your fate?

JAMB Wants You to Voluntarily Submit Your Test With Confirmation

On a good day, candidates are expected to submit their tests themselves. They want you to click the SUBMIT/END TEST BUTTON after you're done with the exam. This is the ideal situation. JAMB requires you to complete the exam, and check through all your chosen answers before the submission.

This is why on the first click of the END TEST BUTTON you will be prompted to confirm YES or NO (whether you want to submit really or you could have a change of mind).

However, there are situations that may warrant you not being able to submit yourself (as earlier noted).

Computer Will Submit For You If You Can't Submit Yourself

Don't panic as your computer and the software have been designed in such a way that, if for any reason you can't submit your UTME yourself, the platform will submit it automatically.

Let's say you complete the test but fail to submit by clicking on the Submit button, the computer will still submit for you.

Let's say you don't complete the test before your time is up, the network is interrupted or the computer shuts down, the computer will still submit for you what you had done so far. That's, if you did just 3 subjects out of the 4, only the 3 would be submitted automatically. If you answered 189 questions in all, only the 189 would be submitted automatically. 

That is as simple as you submitting the uncompleted test, by yourself, before you complete it. There is no rule of thumb that all questions must be answered before submission.

JAMB Won't Deduct Your Mark For Computer Submission

You might have heard that though the computer could submit the test for you, you would lose some scores to that. And you may be imagining that if you'd not been told.

That's not true.

JAMB will not deduct or penalize you for your inability to submit the UTME yourself. Whether you submit yourself or automatically by the computer, your mark won't be any different.

You've only scored what you got!

RecommendedAre We Truly to Rewrite/Re-sit JAMB UTME

You May/May Not Be Allowed To Resit

In case this has not happened to you but you're imagining the worst, if your time is up and the computer submits for you, the CBT center won't log you in again to submit. You can't log in yourself again as well to submit it. The computer will have to do the submission as earlier noted.

If your system shuts down or there is a network interruption or related technical issues during the UTME, provisions will be made by the CBT center to allow you to continue your tests where they stop. They may make a new system available or quickly troubleshoot the one you're using. Here, they will help you to log in again and complete your tests.

Candidates should be aware that if they fail to submit their UTME before the timeout or due to technical issues, the computer is designed to handle the submission automatically.

Where the issue is technical, a CBT center has the provision to allow candidates to resume where the test is interrupted. But if due to timeout, candidates should expect the results based on what they had already covered.

However, no sanctions or mark deduction of marks will be attached to not submitting yourself if you should be a victim.
