The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said it has not commenced the sale of forms for 2021 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination (UTME) as the body warned prospective candidates to be wary of rumour mongers.
The examination board said the delay in the sale of forms is due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
JAMB made this known on Monday, through a weekly bulletin from the office of the registrar.
The body emphasised that it has official channels of communicating to the members of the public as it has not delegated people or group of persons to handle the sale on its behalf.
The report said, “JAMB reiterates that it has not begun sale of its 2021 UTME and Direct Entry (DE) application forms, neither has it announced a date for the exercise.
“The clarification became necessary following fake news that the board has begun the sale of forms and was urging prospective applicants to procure same from some fake selling outlets.
“The public is to note that the news of the purported sale of the registration forms is false and an attempt to mislead the public,” it said.
The examination board also attributed the delay in the sale of the form to the prevailing COVID-19 crisis in the country.
JAMB would however conclude arrangements soon on the sale of the form.
