Each passing day, fraudsters parade themselves virtually – and even physically – as Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) agents; thus exploiting young innocent candidates. They will tell you that they are working in collaboration with JAMB and can help you boost your less than 200 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) score to 250 and above.

Concise News understands that these unscrupulous elements claim to have the ability to upgrade results for those who fail to score up to JAMB’s cut-off mark. As a matter of fact, they present false evidence of the UTME results they have upgraded in the past. Indeed, these are all photoshop!

Just as JAMB ‘expo’ fails to work in this era of JAMB CBT, so also the purported UTME result upgrade does not work. UTME result upgrade is nothing but a scam and myth! You need to be careful.

Do not send your parent’s hard-earned money to (internet) fraudsters in the name of JAMB/UTME score upgrade. You may not have performed very well in the exam, this is not a hindrance towards gaining admission. There are schools (even Federal universities) that accept low UTME scores.

Even if your score is so low that you are not offered admission, life continues. There is always room for improvement. Come back stronger next year and better your previous effort.

It might wonder you how the scammers get a sample of ‘upgraded result’ which they show candidates. As stated earlier, it is pure photoshop! They edit the result using computer software and send you the printout. They even go as far as creating spurious JAMB sites for result checking. But in reality, your real result remains unchanged on the JAMB website.

In essence, what Concise News is telling you is that it is impossible to upgrade your JAMB 2019 UTME result to a higher score. The scammers simply scan original results they lay their hands upon and change the grades to make you believe it was actually upgraded. UTME 2019 results upgrade would not work. With a score above 180, you should be able to gain admission into a tertiary institution. We implore you to work hard for your Post-UTME screening. Stay blessed!
