The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has not fixed another examination for any category of candidates on July 3 as being circulated.
The news making rounds claim that JAMB rescheduled exam for candidates who scored below 170, due to mass failure in this year’s exam.
However, the board’s Head of Media and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Lagos that the report “is not correct.”
Benjamin said that at no point did JAMB announce 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. (NAN).
“No examination has been fixed for any category of candidates.”

Benjamin noted that almost all results of candidates, who sat for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, have since been released.
There has been reaction trailing the mass failure recorded by this year’s candidates. Some candidates claimed that the mix up in the Board’s syllabus was the reason behind the failure.
This claim however has been disputed by JAMB, who says that candidates’ ill-preparedness is to blame for their failure not the syllabus.
