JAMB Denies Deducting Marks From Candidates Scores

JAMB Denies Deducting Marks From Candidates Scores

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has denied the rumour concerning the deduction of candidates' marks in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Dr Fabian Benjamin, the Head of JAMB Information and Media, denied the reports in a statement in Abuja advised candidates to disregard the rumour..

According to Benjamin, the rumour is false, devilish and a ploy to cause disaffection among candidates who participated in the 2017 UTME.

“It is no longer news that all our centres have CCTV camera and we have watched all proceedings at the Computer Based Test (CBT) centres across the nation.
“Those involved in any infraction will be sanctioned in accordance with the provision of the Examination Malpractice Act.
“The board has not deducted any marks from any candidate and is not contemplating doing that as it is not a condition for sanction in any of the provisions of the law against malpractice.

“Again, we call on all candidates to be mindful of fraudulent characters who will send misleading information to create panic and take advantage of the situation to defraud them”.

He advised candidates to login to check the result with their registration number or with email address and urged candidates with any challenge not to hesitate to contact the board or check the organisation’s Website for detailed information and numbers for enquiries.

  • deee_ao: You say Science exam was easy... What made Arts' difficult?? What about Science students having higher grades in Use of English? Is that also a Science course? The fact that Science students seem more prolific does not mean the exam was easy for them and not easy for Arts. Appreciate their intellectual worth in this year's. There are Arts students with high grades too.

    .talk less of candidates who do not have any .as for science students dis science students that.we all did maths so I expect u to know d essence of calculator when u r required to use less than a minute to solve 2 question as for chem I can say yes it's possible to solve that without calc but for physics,some lucky ppl got orals as the majority of the questions while some got calculations as the majority of the questions.hope u get his point and my point now

33/40×100=82.5 . I can't figure how I ended up with

58 .
