Rumour making rounds on social media claims that the Senate mandated the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to add 40 marks each to the scores of all candidates who sat for this year's UTME.
In reaction to this report, the body responsible for examination for undergraduates debunked the rumour saying that the Senate did nothing of such.

It added that the board’s major concern had always been to ensure that cheating during and after examination were reduced to zero level, and this, he said, the board had substantially achieved.
