The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has reacted to a viral report making rounds online about a female candidate who did not write the examination but still got UTME result.

Recall that a Facebook user identified as Gozie took to his page to state that a girl who was supposed to take the UTME exam at 7 am, but all the systems at her centre were faulty.

However, on sending a text to the Board’s SMS code, the girl allegedly received a UTME score like others who wrote the exam. She allegedly got 191.

The spokesperson for JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, described the report as “fake, malicious and a calculated attempt to undermine the integrity of the Board.”

He made this known in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday, May 7.

“The examination template of the Board is designed with the highest sense of responsibility and is not an allocation platform where scores are doled out to candidates.

“It is most unfortunate that anybody could even believe such narration or that the story could even gain traction given the Board’s integrity.

As reported by The Nation, speaking about how the mischief makers can execute their plans, he said:

“In investigating some of these allegations, the Board discovered that some of these mischief makers copy results sent to other candidates, edit the details sent to themselves and then parade this as emanating from the Board.

“The Board challenges any candidate, parent or anybody with such a claim or information to prove it wrong by coming forward with the details of such claims and the phone number with which such results were conveyed.”
