The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has debunked a rumour circulating in social media, that the Senate has passed a bill urging the board to add extra 40 marks to candidates.
According to a statement made available to the press by Fabian Benjamin, JAMB Head of Information, there is no bill anywhere on the board’s 2017 UTME performance.
“We urge candidates to disregard all funny connotations online on their results as the board will not contemplate doing all that is being speculated as that will negate the ethics of an examination body as critical as JAMB.”
“There is no bill anywhere, not even a motion has been tabled before the two chambers of the National Assembly on the board’s 2017 UTME performance.” The statement read.
Benjamin added that the major concern of JAMB had always been to ensure that cheating during and after examination were reduced to zero level, and this, he said, the board had substantially achieved.
