2022 UTME: JAMB debunks errors in scoring system

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has debunked rumors of errors in its scoring system for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

Therefore, it warned the public, particularly candidates, to be wary of fraudsters who are making false claims of errors in the scoring of candidates in the 2022 UTME.

JAMB maintained that the UTME is a computer-based test that is scored electronically with no human mediation.

It said this in a statement by its Head of Public Affairs and Protocol Fabian Benjamin yesterday in Abuja.

The statement reads: “Consequently, the unfounded rumors making the rounds are nothing but the products of 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 organize another UTME.

“This clarification became necessary following reports of a purported rescheduling of 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 organized.

“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.”
