The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has not commenced the sales of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry (D.E) application forms.
In a statement,JAMB said that it’s attention 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.
It stated that 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 and DE forms has commenced is not only fraudulent but a calculated attempt by mischief makers to create unnecessary panic among prospective candidates for their own selfish ends.
The examination body noted that the commencement of the sale of the Board’s application documents in any given year has never been shrouded in mystery rather it is always a well-publicised undertaking in the print media as well as online and electronic platforms.
It further said that the Board has concluded all arrangements to commence the sale of the 2022 UTME/DE Application Documents in due course, stressing that it is yet to fix any date for its commencement.
JAMB therefore urged the general public to be mindful of speculators who are in the habit of second-guessing the Board’s on certain procedural issues with the aim of defrauding hapless candidates.
The Board however wishes to inform the general public that they would be sufficiently informed of the commencement of the sale of EPINs once approval has been granted by relevant authorities.
