The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has dismissed reports of error in the scoring of candidates in the just concluded 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
In a statement issued by JAMB Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Tuesday, the board urged the public to be wary of fraudsters who were making such claims in order to defraud them.
“JAMB maintains for the umpteenth time that the UTME was a Computer Based Test (CBT) that was scored electronically with no human mediation whatsoever.
“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, once again, advises the general public to disregard this item of news as it does not emanate from JAMB nor has it authorised any individual or group to make such a pronouncement on its behalf.
“The board, therefore, advises candidates to avail themselves of its user-friendly advisories on assessing their 2022 UTME results and other processes through periodic visits,” the statement read.
