JAMB Deducts 100 Marks from Candidates’ Score – Did You Get Such Message?

We have received complaints from JAMB candidates that jamb deduct 100 marks from them. We recently got a report that JAMB sent our text messages to some candidates that have participated in the ongoing examination notifying them that due to their involvement in examination malpractices as captured by the CCTV Cameras, that 100 marks will be deducted from their 2017 UTME Score


This report is yet to be officially verified. Some UTME candidates were shocked to allegedly wake up to a strange text message on their phone.

According to report, the text message reads,
“The message read “Dear Candidate CCTV Camera Indicate That You ere Involved In Malpractice JAMB Deducted 100 marks from your score thank you.”

If you received any of such message or you know some one that did, please let us know in the comment section.

For instance, if you are one of those who initially received the 40 marks, now that it has been deducted, your score may likely fall below the cut off mark of your choice institution or course which implies that you may need to go for a JAMB Change of Course and Institution.

It is obvious that some candidates must have exceeded the number of times that they are suppose to check for their results free on JAMB portal. For such candidates your only option now is to get your JAMB Original Result Slip (the one that has your passport photograph on it).

As a matter of fact, every candidate is advised to get his or her JAMB Original Result Slip as this will be needed during admission processing.

I Think JAMB is really confused and their mismanagement of the 2017 CBT exam has led to several protest across the country.

Many parents and protesting candidates had called for the sacking of the JAMB registrar – Ojerinde.
