2021 UTME: We did not set questions outside syllabus,says JAMB

By Joseph Erunke
 ABUJA–THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has said contrary to claims in some quarters that the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME questions were set outside the recommended syllabus, nothing as such happened.

The statement, tagged: “UTME Has Its Right Syllabus”, read in full: “The Board ordinarily would not have reacted to the half-truth being peddled by some disgruntled candidates, who were ill-prepared for the examination and who, true to all expectations, performed below the expectations of their guardians, that the Board had based its questions on the wrong syllabus.

“The truth of the matter is that all Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination(UTME)questions are based on texts prescribed for the UTME in its syllabus. 

“To ensure that its syllabus is accessible to all candidates sitting its examination, the Board has made the material available on three platforms. The syllabus was issued to candidates through: i The Board’s Integrated Brochure and Syllabus System (IBASS)

ii. The CD which is given to candidates after completion of registration 

iii. The link https://www.ibass.jamb.gov.ng. as provided with the candidates’ profile code.

“It is not automatic that the NECO/WAEC syllabus should transform into JAMB’s otherwise there would not have been a need for a separate syllabus for the UTME.

“The UTME is not school-based and not an achievement test but a selection or ranking test which ordinarily does not require a syllabus and does not have room for fail or pass as in achievement tests.
