The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has declared that a purported cut-off mark whether for programmes or institutions being circulated in some sections of the media is not true, saying it did not emanate from the board.
Daily Trust reports that the board’s head of media and information department Fabian Benjamin who made this known declared that the report was just mere speculation.
Benjamin said: ''We want to seize this medium to debunk such rumours as they are malicious and wicked as they are designed to defraud innocent Nigerians, especially parents and guardians as well as other stakeholders.
''No cut-off marks will ever be decided upon without the usual policy meeting which has been scheduled to hold sometime in June and which is to be chaired by the minister of education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
''Until that is done, every other thing that is being paraded as cut-off mark is fictitious and therefore, the public is hereby warned not to fall prey to these fraudsters.
