The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has denied fixing another examination for any category of candidates on July 3 as being peddled in some quarters.
The board’s Head of Media and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Lagos.
He stated that the report “is not correct.”
Benjamin noted that almost all results of candidates, who sat for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, have since been released.
He stated that JAMB has at no point thereafter, announced any form of another examination for any category of candidates.
“The attention of the board was drawn to a Twitter message credited to it that it had fixed another examination for candidates who scored lower than 170 in its examination and should come for a re-sit on July 3,’’ he said.
