The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has
dissociated itself from a social media account on Facebook
calling on candidates to come for their UTME score upgrade.
The board warn the public and desperate candidates against
falling victim of this scam and being defrauded of their hard
According to a statement by the Board’s Head of Media, “We
wish to state unequivocally that the statement was not from
JAMB, its Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, or any of its offices
nor has he authorized any persons or group to post such an
inglorious request and statement.
“JAMB therefore want to state that the results gotten by
candidates from the 2017 UTME were the true reflection of
their performance after going through a full proof scoring
mechanisms. As such, it did not intend to review the scores or
commissioned any body to do that. JAMB has also not been
directed by any organ of government to so.
“JAMB wants to use this opportunity to state that its
examination is not a fail or pass examination as there are
other variables that are considered outside the examination to
arrive at a successful admission. There is no need for this
desperation as getting “high” scores as being touted by
fraudulent characters is not a guarantee for admission.
He finally stated that effort are being made to arrest the
perpetrators of this scam, and called on the public to visit the
closes JAMB office if they have enquiries.
