JAMB Says Candidates Can Score Zero

JAMB logo
Things seem to be conflicting with JAMB after another official update says candidates can score NOTHING in their exams.

There has been news that the JAMB registrar released a paper that confirmed that admission seekers who are able to register for UTME will not be scored 0, even if they are absent in the exams. The same paper affirmed that candidates who didn’t get any questions right or didn’t attempt any will still not come out with zero when their results are released.

I discussed this here backing it up with the official references. 

However, the board has taken to its official Twitter handle to conflict with the position that she didn’t mean that again.

In a statement that was a direct opposite to what the registrar says according to the standardization policy, the board claimed it’s using in grading candidates in UTME, it has reversed that candidates could score nothing.

The widespread publication that even without sitting for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), a Candidate would not score zero is incorrect. Any Candidate who registers for our examination and fails to appear is marked ABSENT and scores NOTHING, not even zero.

It’s not clear what the difference between “zero” and “nothing” is according to the matriculation board.

Reacting to this new position, candidates seem to be mucking the board as it appeared they’re not sure what they’re talking about.

And truly if JAMB is awarding marks according to her official grading system, why wouldn’t a candidate score zero?

But when you hear from the horse’s mouth such as the registrar of a board, you’re left with no other choice. However, more light needs to be shed on this if JAMB will need to come truly open about its stand.

What do you think about this conflicting statement from the same body?
