JAMB Speaks On Mass Failure In 2021 UTME

1 min read

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has finally broken silence and reacted to the reports of mass failure in the 2021 United Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) nationwide.

The board, in a statement by its Head of Media and Protocol, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, Tuesday, insisted that “all Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) questions are based on texts prescribed for the UTME in its syllabus, adding that ‘the rumour of mass failure is a fluke and a campaign by those whose source of illicit income has been further blocked.’

It said its clarification was in response to what it described as “half-truth being peddled by some disgruntled candidates, who were ill-prepared for the examination and who, true to all expectations, performed below the expectations of their guardians, that the Board had based its questions on the wrong syllabus.”

The statement, tagged: “UTME Has Its Right Syllabus”, read in full: “The Board ordinarily would not have reacted to the half-truth being peddled by some disgruntled candidates, who were ill-prepared for the examination and who, true to all expectations, performed below the expectations of their guardians, that the Board had based its questions on the wrong syllabus.

“The truth of the matter is that all Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) questions are based on texts prescribed for the UTME in its syllabus.
