UTME HAS ITS RIGHT SYLLABUS SAYS JAMB

CONTRARY TO THE RUMOUR BEING PEDDLED BY SOME DISCONTENTED CANDIDATES, ILL-PREPARED FOR THE EXAMINATION AND WHO PERFORMED BELOW THE EXPECTATIONS OF THEIR GUARDIANS, THE JOINT ADMISSIONS AND MATRICULATION BOARD, JAMB SAYS QUESTIONS OF THE 2021 UTME WERE NOT FROM A WRONG SYLLABUS.

THE BOARD STATES THAT THE QUESTIONS WERE DRAWN FROM TEXTS PRESCRIBED FOR THE UTME IN ITS SYLLABUS.

JAMB’S HEAD, PUBLIC AFFAIRS, DR. FABIAN BENJAMIN WHO STATED THIS IN A STATEMENT SAID TO ENSURE THAT ITS SYLLABUS IS ACCESSIBLE TO ALL CANDIDATES SITTING FOR ITS EXAMINATION.

THE BOARD SAYS THE MATERIAL IS AVAILABLE ON THREE PLATFORMS ADDING THAT THE UTME IS NOT SCHOOL-BASED AND NOT AN ACHIEVEMENT TEST BUT A SELECTION OR RANKING TEST WHICH ORDINARILY DOES NOT REQUIRE A SYLLABUS.

WHILE DESCRIBING THE RUMOUR OF MASS FAILURE AS A FALSE AND A CAMPAIGN BY THOSE WHOSE SOURCE OF ILLICIT INCOME HAS BEEN FURTHER BLOCKED.
THE BOARD ADDS THAT IN THE 2021 UTME, 1, 415,501 REGISTERED FOR BOTH UTME/DE. OUT OF THIS NUMBER, 1,340,003 CANDIDATES REGISTERED FOR UTME AND 75, 498 REGISTERED FOR DE.
THE TOTAL NUMBER OF CANDIDATES WHO TOOK THE UTME ARE 1, 300,722 WITH 78 389 CANDIDATES ABSENT.
