2024 UTME: JAMB warns candidates against patronizing fraudsters

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has advised candidates writing the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME, to refrain from giving their details to fraudsters.

The Board Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, gavethe advice when fielding questions from newsmen during the monitoring exercise at the JAMB Professional Centre in Bwari on Friday.

“Today’s examination is very important to us because we have done so much engineering that we have been trying to do in the last seven years and we are only successful today for the first time.

“Those who are fraudsters, who are doing all sorts of things, they know they are in trouble because for the first time we are able to do certain things that we have been aspiring to do,” he said.

Oloyede, who hailed the public, especially parents for their smooth conduct, said parents usually constitute problems for students in previous exercises.

The registrar appealed to the candidates who experienced glitches in the course of their examinations to remain calm as they would be rescheduled to write their examinations.

He pointed out that so far the exams had been going on smoothly as only one centre had been reported to have had one problem or the other.

“We appeal to the public to understand this, some centres will fail. I have heard of only one centre who has failed today.

“By the end of today, I expect about 10 percent of the centres to have one problem or the other because we know the level of development in different parts of the country,” the JAMB Registrar added.
