JAMB warns UTME candidates against fake questions

Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, has alleged that some syndicate groups are selling past question papers of the United Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for N200,000.

Oloyede warned candidates against falling victims to the fraudsters, who also claimed to have prepared answers to the examination questions.

He stated this while speaking during the monitoring of the ongoing UTME exams, along with the Minister of State for Education, Prof. Anthony Anwukah, in Abuja.

“This morning, somebody sent me questions. They call it Orijo and he bought it for N200,000 and when I saw it, it was our questions in 1984 and he just put 2017 on it and started selling it and people are buying it.

“So, if people are corrupt, I won’t have any sympathy if they are duped by corrupt people like themselves. They are just being wise. They went into the past questions of JAMB and just changed the heading.

“Somebody else called me and said he had all my questions. I asked him to send them to me and when I checked, I just laughed because none of that was in our questions. What people are just doing, they are making money because people are gullible.

“We appeal to people to do things according to the rules. No cutting of corners will work with JAMB and that is why many of the candidates who fell for such blackmail are disappointed,” he said.
