JAMB Refutes Error In Its Scoring System, Reacts To Plans To Organize Another UTME
By: In: News

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has denied reports of error in the scoring of candidates in the just concluded 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

This is as the examination body has warned the public, especially candidates at the just concluded UTME against the deceitful and other unsavoury activities of fraudsters who were making false claims of errors in the scoring system.

This disclosure is contained in a statement issued by JAMB’s Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, and made available to journalists in Abuja on Tuesday.

Benjamin said that the board is insisting that the UTME was a Computer Based Test (CBT) that was scored electronically with no human mediation whatsoever, as well as debunked rumour of plans to organize another UTME.

What the JAMB’s spokesman is saying

Benjamin in the statement said, “Consequently, the unfounded rumours making the rounds are nothing but the products of the deceitful brains of the masterminds of these baseless imputations.

“Hence, the board reiterates that there is no room for errors in its electronic scoring system nor does it plan to organise another UTME.

“This clarification became necessary following reports of a purported rescheduling of the UTME from a section of the social media citing phantom errors in the computer scoring system and a purported apology from JAMB to the effect that another UTME would be organised.

“The board wishes to state that the report is not only false, mischievous, but also misleading and crafted out of the frustration and inability of these fraudsters to dupe unsuspecting candidates owing to the series of innovative strategies the board had put in place to protect candidates.’’

JAMB reiterates warning against fraudsters

Benjamin also recalled that the board had envisaged some of the strategies of these nefarious individuals and had sounded a note of warning to the candidates and the general public alike.
