The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Thursday denied commencing the sale of application forms for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) application documents.
The Board’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known in a statement today.
Benjamin explained that the Board had not commenced the sale of any form, adding that it has finished all arrangements to commence the sale of the 2022 forms in due course.
The statement read in part: “The attention of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been drawn to the activities of unwholesome elements who had been misleading the general public on the purported commencement of the sale of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) application documents.
“For the avoidance of doubt, any information in circulation purporting to have emanated from the Board to the effect that the sale of the 2022 UTME/DE forms has commenced isn’t only fraudulent but is a calculated attempt by mischief makers to create unnecessary panic among prospective candidates for their own selfish ends.
“Although JAMB has concluded all arrangements to commence the sale of the 2022 UTME and DE Application Documents in due course but it’s yet to fix any date for its commencement.”
The statement added that announcement of a suitable date to begin the sale would be accompanied by well-defined information on the steps for the buying of the e-pins, creating a profile and how to go about biometric capturing, among other important details.
