There has been a report making rounds among candidates expecting the results of the 2019 UTME which says the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will conduct fresh examinations.
JAMB has however denied such reports that candidates who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will conduct another Computer Based Test (CBT).
Nigeria School Updates gathered that there have been reports that the JAMB server has crashed and those a need for another UTME. However, JAMB has said such reports are fake as results of candidates are still intact.
Speaking on recently, JAMB Head, Media and Information, Fabian Benjamin, said the reports are not only wicked but fraudulent.
”We want to distance ourselves from such malicious and wicked rumours by fraudulent persons, as there is no truth in them,” he told NAN.
”We did not issue any press statement concerning crashing of the server. All these are antics of desperate persons trying to cause panic and confusion among candidates and the general public.
”We are not going to succumb to such rumours as we remain focused on ensuring that we achieve what we have set out to do.
”After the examination, the board embarked on screening to determine any form of examination malpractice and infractions by both candidates and examination centres. This is what has been delaying the release of the results.”
