JAMB warns prospective UTME candidates of fake past questions
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has cautioned prospective candidates for the 2018 UTME to beware of fake past questions in CDs being distributed across the country.
The exam body gave the warning on Tuesday, in a statement, signed by Fabian Benjamin, head of media.
The board dissociated itself from the circulated booklets noting that the past questions were “intended to dupe unsuspecting candidates”.
JAMB also stated that it had not authorised any individual or group to circulate past questions on its behalf.
Benjamin stated that “The fake past questions in CD Rom entitled; “JAMB PRO CBT practice software for UTME” was purported to have emanated from JAMB in other to give credence to the products.
“This is also made by the producers to perpetuate their nefarious activities.
“JAMB wishes to dissociate itself from the production and sale of the fake CDs and warned the public to be vigilant and avoid being defrauded.”
JAMB’s media head added that “As a responsible and responsive organisation, we will not be part of any ploy to defraud innocent candidates.
“We have put machineries in motion to our outlets and service providers not to be used as channels of exploitation or distribution of such fake items.”
KAMB also restated its dedication to continuously ensure that candidates applying for its examination were not misinformed.
The exam body called on the prospective candidates to avoid and disregard fake online sites, enjoining them to study adequately for the examinations and make enquiries at any of the board’s office across the country.
