The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has described as untrue news that it had commenced sale of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations and Direct Entry forms.
It said this in a statement signed by the Board’s Head of Media and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin.
In the same statement, the JAMB noted that any claims that the sale of forms had commenced was fraudulent and should be disregarded.
Although the Board stated that it had concluded plans to commence the sale of the UTME and DE forms, it added that no date had been fixed.
JAMB noted that the date for the commencement of sale of the forms had never been shrouded in mystery and has always been published in both print and digital media.
The statement said further, “Although the Board has concluded all arrangements to commence the sale of the 2022 UTME/DE Application Documents in due course it is yet to fix any date for its commencement.
“The general public is, therefore, by this notice urged 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 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.
“Furthermore, the announcement of a suitable date to commence the sale would be accompanied by well-defined information on the procedures for the purchase of the e-pins, creating a profile, and where to go for biometric capturing, among other essential details.”
