An anonymous JAMB official has revealed that the examination body might need to cancel half of the 2019 UTME results in some states due to the high number of cheating recorded during the examination.
In a chat with Premium Times, the official said every part of Nigeria partook in cheating.
He spoke about the “fearless display of fraudulent tactics by some individuals including parents and centre owners,”
His words, “Those people, I trembled when I saw the magnitude of malpractice they perpetrated, in spite of the technological measures JAMB took. I don’t know what we can do again,”
“If you look at the CCTV camera recordings, you would now wonder whether these people thought we were just joking when we insisted on installation of CCTV cameras. I am sure they didn’t believe us because anybody that had believed us would not have tried what they tried in those places.”
Also, JAMB has advised all students to shun rumors about the release of 2019 UTME results.
