The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned the candidates in the just-concluded 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), to be wary of the guile and other unsavoury activities of fraudsters who are making false claims of errors in the scoring of candidates in the 2022 UTME.

JAMB’s spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in a statement, said the UTME is a computer-based test that is scored electronically with no human mediation whatsoever.

He said the unfounded rumours making the rounds were 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.”

He said the 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,” he said.

He advised the public to disregard this item of news as it does not emanate from JAMB.
