JAMB reveals why some candidates have more than one result

The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board, JAMB, has stated that no candidate had more than one score in the 2019 UTME.

In a statement released, JAMB head of media publications, Dr. Fabian Benjamin revealed that candidates who claim to have gotten more than one score are victims of examination syndicates.

“The syndicates, realising that they could not deliver as promised, instead, came up with these forged results and sent same to candidates who believed them.

“These are the set of candidates claiming to have two results, that is, with the actual result as one of them.

“It is practically impossible to have two results because we do not send results to candidates, rather, candidates send ‘Results’ to 55019 and the result is subsequently transmitted to the respective candidates.”

Benjamin buttressed his claims by stating that the board secured the UTME results with high security features to prevent syndicates or fraudsters from manipulating them. Part of the high schooler measure was a unique bar code placed on each result to safeguard it.

He urged candidates to be wary of criminal elements who want to defraud them, adding that the board’s renewed resolve to confront examination malpractice headlong was yielding results.
