'We're improving on our services' - JAMB

A concerned internet user who is apparently a UTME candidate posted:

PAY ATTENTION: Share your outstanding story with our editors! Please reach us through info@corp.legit.ng!

"But JAMB, we will be needing the original result slip for screening in our institution,. How should we go about that, or you are uploading it with time?"

JAMB replied on its official X (formerly Twitter) page, saying:

"You should be aware that for enhanced service delivery, JAMB improves on its services time to time.
"What would be obtainable in that regard would be officially communicated to you in due course."

Legit.ng reports that JAMB conducts UTME for prospective undergraduates into Nigerian universities.

The board is also responsible for administering similar examinations for applicants to Nigerian public and private monotechnics, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

All of these candidates must have obtained the West Africa Senior School Certificate (WASSCE) conducted annually by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), or its equivalent, the National Examination Council (NECO), Senior School Certificate Examination, (SSCE).
