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 earned money.
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 anybody 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.
