Jamb Has Just announced that they have released results for candidates who wrote their exams on the 15th of May 2017.

While some candidates are eager to check theirs, other have been warned after JAMB sent out series of text messages to some defaulters alerting them that 100 marks were deducted from their total marks because they were caught on CCTV Cheating.

  • Any centre that has allowed students to cheat in the on going Jamb exams explicitly or implicitly should be banned and the owner charged to court.
    Jamb should sign agreement with any center being used as cbt.Centers where students are found cheating connotes that such center have been classified as special centers implicitly and the owner might have used his surrogates to collect money secretly to help.
    Enough is enough of applicants being gullible.parents should be encouraging their children to study and not looking for special centers or attempting to look for negative means for their children to pass.
    Jamb registrar should tell us the level of transparency after the conduct of the exams with respect to Jamb staff.

  • Did you guys hear the news? It was said that jamb deducted 100marks from all students who wrote on Tuesday 16th of May 2017 because they caught some cheating. And they are still denaing it. A friend of mine checked his result on Thursday seeing 263,on getting to the cyber cafe to print it he was shocked to see 163. I didn’t cheat so why would they remove my 100mark, I know exactly what I got, why am I scoring 189 when I answered my eng, Chem & Bio correctly. PLS GIVE ME BACK MY SCORE i’m not a cheat.
