The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been trending on social media over the grammatical blunders it made while responding to complaints from some candidates.


The exam body, while attending to enquiries and complaints from some candidates via Twitter on Monday, “inadvertently” used “Am” in place of “I’m or I am”.

The error became very “costly” and got many startled when the handler wrote “main time” instead of “meantime.”

“Send your ticket number for me to confirm. Am sure you must have been attended to,” it replied a user, telling another complainer that “we would check and get back to you but in the main time send the reference number.”


The gaffes did not go unnoticed as some Nigerians took to the microblogging platform to register their different reactions.


As of the time this report was filed, some internet users have adopted hilarious comments and memes to ridicule the handler’s literacy.

Even jamb doesn’t know the difference between am and I’m,” a Twitter user said.

Dear JAMB, stop disgracing yourself here. As an organization it should be “kindly send/forward “us” your ticket number for confirmation” not “me” and it should be “I’m” not “Am”. And whoever is running this account definitely failed jamb Lmao,” another user said.

“So you got the balls to fail us in English when you also spell “Am” instead of “I’m” What’s JAMB’S JAMB score in English,” a user asked.


Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
