According to Fabian Benjamin, head of protocol and public relations at the board, the conduct of the examination is adjudged the best ever in Nigeria since the introduction of the CBT system as it recorded lease irregularities.

“The Board notes with satisfaction that the utilisation of NIN (National Identification Number) has helped in curbing examination malpractices as the 2021 UTME has recorded the least incidence of irregularities since the inception of the CBT examinations in Nigeria,” he said.
