Joint Admission And Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination ( UTME ) and Direct Entry forms are not yet available for sale in any jamb office or cyber cafe.
Jamb has urged prospective candidates to be mindful of frausters who go about circulating second class and irrelevant information concerning the sale of the form.
Jamb has also said that the sale of the form will not be hidden and will be announced, so that candidates who wishes to purchase the form, will proceed to their office for the registration.
This was revealed in a statement which reads
” the attention of the joint admission and matriculation board ( JAMB) has been drawn to the activities of some unwholesome elements who had been misleading the general public on the purported commencement of the sale of 2022 unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) application documents.
” for the avoidance of doubt, any information purporting to have emanacted from the Board of the effect that the sale of the 2022 UTME and DE forms has commenced is not only fraudulent but is a calculated attempt by mischief makers to create unnecessary panic among prospective candidates for their own selfish ends.
” it should be noted that the commencement of the sale of the Boards application documents in any given year has never been shrouded in mystery.
” Rather it is always a well publicised undertaking in the print media as well as online and electronic platforms.
” Although the Board has concluded all arrangements to commence the sale of the 2022 UTME/ DE application Documents in due course but 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 helpless 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.
“However, the announcement of a suitable date to commence the would be accompanied by well defined information on the procedures of the purchase of the e-pins, creating a profile, and where to go for biometric capturing, among other essential details.
