Denial of false claims regarding new JAMB results release 2024

Addressing circulating rumours on social media, JAMB clarified that reports suggesting a compromise of the new JAMB results due to a cyber security breach are entirely unfounded. The board stamped that it has not considered rescheduling the examination and urged the public to dismiss such misinformation as it originates from fraudulent sources aiming to deceive unsuspecting individuals.

Identification of fraudulent activities

JAMB also highlighted the emergence of counterfeit correspondence purporting to be from the board, falsely claiming the compromise of UTME results. The fraudulent nature of these communications was evident, lacking the essential signatures and official characteristics associated with legitimate JAMB correspondence. Such deceptive actions aim to tarnish the board’s reputation and exploit candidates for illicit gains.

Assurance of result integrity

Reaffirming its commitment to maintaining the integrity of examination processes, JAMB assured the public that all new JAMB results for 2024, including those released, remain secure and unaffected by external interference. The board clarified that withheld results are under scrutiny for examination misconduct, with ongoing investigations to ascertain the involvement of candidates through thorough examination of CCTV footage from accredited centers.

Clarification on cut-off marks

JAMB has clarified that institutional minimum admissible scores are determined by individual institutions before being collectively discussed and agreed upon at the annual Policy Meeting on Admissions. Any deviation from these agreed benchmarks is attributed to the institutions themselves, rather than the board.
