UTME candidate, Mmesoma writes JAMB, pleads for leniency

The 19-year-old candidate of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), Miss Ejikeme Mmesoma, has written to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board(JAMB) and asked for leniency for manipulating her examination result.

Mmesoma presented her letter of apology before the House of Representatives ad-hoc committee on the alleged Manipulation of Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination (UTME) results on Wednesday in Abuja.

The Board banned the candidate from writing the UTME for three years after she forged her result and changed it from 249 to 362.
