The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, JAMB, has denied commencing the sale of forms for the 2020/2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
This was disclosed on Friday by the board’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamn, who revealed that the board is still in the process of admissions.
“There’s a guideline being circulated presently that the board will soon commence the sale of its 2020 UTME forms in January, while others even said it had commenced already.
“This is not true because we have not rolled out our forms for sale yet; admissions into tertiary institutions are still ongoing and have not closed yet because we work with a calendar.
“Nigerians should disregard all that is presently being circulated, it is all the antics of fraudsters who want to hoodwink unsuspecting public and dupe them of their hard earned income.
“When we commence the sale, we have our official channels like our Twitter handle to pass the information and would also advertise to let the public be aware,” he said.
Benjamin also revealed that part of the reason why the sale of forms is yet to commence is that JAMB wants to ensure candidates purchase the National Identification Number (NIN) from the National Identification Management Commission (NIMC).
