The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Tuesday warned candidates and the general public about the just concluded 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and other stakeholders to be wary of activities of fraudsters in the 2022 UTME.
This clarification became necessary following reports of a rescheduling of the UTME from a section of the social media citing errors in the computer scoring system and an apology from JAMB claiming that another UTME would be organised.
In a statement by its Director of Public Relations, Fabian Benjamin, the board stated, “the UTME is a computer-based test that is scored electronically with no human mediation whatsoever.”
Benjamin in his words said 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.
Benjamin have however said, the board has no plans of conducting another UTME for the 2022 session.
