The board stated this in its weekly bulletin released from the office of the Registrar on Sunday in Abuja.

The bulletin quoted the Head, Media and Publications, Dr Fabian Benjamin, as saying that candidates with more than one result were either fraudulent or victims of examination syndicates.



According to him, the board has evidence of some candidates who paid money to syndicates to ensure they gain high scores in the examination.

“The syndicates, realising that they could not deliver as promised, instead, came up with these forged results and sent same to candidates who believed them.

“These are the set of candidates claiming to have two results, that is, with the actual result as one of them.

He, however, warned that candidates must not become gullible and desperate and urged them to be wary of criminal elements who want to defraud them.

Benjamin also said that the board’s renewed resolve to confront examination malpractice headlong was yielding results.

He pointed out that the board was not responsible for deciding a national cutoff mark for admissions into various institutions, adding that the board had not set a cutoff mark for the 2019/20 admission process.

He, however, explained that a national cutoff mark would be decided at the JAMB Policy meeting of education shareholders and heads of institutions to be chaired by a Ministry of Education official.

He said the meeting would hold on June 11 at Gbongan, Osun state.
