Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB Response To Candidates Complaints Over Wrong Questions And Answers


As candidates continue to lament their challenges in the on going UTME, some candidates have complained that some of the questions on English Language were wrong as the answers are not available in the options given.

According to the candidates, JAMB should put this into consideration when marking and grading them so it doesn’t affect their scores negatively.

However, when contacted, the Public Relations Officer, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said the portion in question is the comprehension part whereby they have to fill in the gaps.

You know these students are in a hurry to finish and most of them don’t take their time to go through the questions. Even some candidates in one of the centers I visited pointed out that to me and I had to explain to them that in comprehension, you have to fill in the gaps. I can assure you that JAMB didn’t make any mistake when setting the questions.” He emphasized
