The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have refuted claims that results of its 2020 UTME taken on Saturday, March 14 and Monday, March 16 has been cancelled.
Recall that the board on Monday released results of 312,000 candidates who sat for the examination.
However, candidates some candidates were not able to check their results on Tuesday and as such alleged that the examination has been cancelled.
Reacting, the JAMB Head of Media, Fabian Benjamin in a statement said such rumours were the handiwork of fraudsters and should be disregarded.
He described the rumour as wicked, malicious and misleading.
‘‘Candidates should disregard rumours making the rounds that the results have been cancelled. To check their results, candidates are to send ‘RESULT’ to 55019 and not on the Board’s website’’. He advised
”JAMB wishes to reassure all candidates who have written this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) so far that it has not cancelled any of its examination or results.
‘‘The results of the first day was placed on the website and some fraudulent individuals were manipulating it to deceive unsuspecting candidates hence our decision to move it to the mobile platform for candidates to use their unique phone numbers used in registering for the examination to access their results.
He explained that the result of the examination will continue to be released as the examinations are taken.
