The Examination Board gave the warning through its corruption and transparency unit (ACTU)

According to the Board, score upgrade has never been done before, nothing that the board will not accept it. 

Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the head of Media and Information, in its weekly bulletin, on Sunday in Abuja, notes that the call for score upgrade remains a scam used by fraudster to defraud candidates and their parents. 

The board advised candidates and their parents against such act, adding that parents/candidates should be ready to face the full wrath of the law when caught.

The board employed candidates and their parents against such act, adding that parents and candidates should be ready to face the repercussions and wrath of the law when caught. 

The article reads: “The Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board wishes to advise parents, guardians and candidates in particular that there is nothing called ‘JAMB score upgrade.’

“This has never existed and will never be condoned by the board.

“Parents/guardians and candidates alike are to note that the so-called score upgrade is simply a scam perpetrated by fraudsters to deceive unsuspecting and gullible candidates, their parents or their guardians as the case may be.

“Therefore, any parent/guardian/ candidate that gets himself/herself involved in such a fraudulent act is doing so at his/her own peril and should be ready to face the full wrath of the law when caught.”

The Examination board said it has solved four thousand cases since the Federal Government ordered a lockdown of Lagos, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The board said its workers have been attending to candidates’ complaint from home since the lockdown.

It added that the printing of original results slips and changing of programmes and institution would resume once the lockdown is lifted by the government.
