The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has provided additional information on how candidates can check their 2020 UTME results.
This follows complaints by some candidates that they are unable to check their results via the JAMB result checker portal.
Explaining why such candidates are unable to access their results, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, JAMB Head, Media and Information narrated that the board had to shut down the portal following an attempt by some fraudsters to alter results of candidates.
He, therefore, directed candidates who wrote the exam on Monday to check the result through text messages on their phone.
HOW TO CHECK UTME 2020 RESULTS
Naija News understands candidates can check their JAMB UTME results by typing ‘RESULT’ and sending to 55019 with their registered telephone numbers for their scores.
The JAMB spokesperson also denied that the board has cancelled the results of candidates that wrote the exam on Saturday and Monday.
“JAMB wishes to reassure all candidates who have written this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) so far that it has not cancelled any of its examination or results.
“All results that have been released so far are intact and therefore there is no need for any panic whatsoever, he said on Wednesday.
“They should not check their results on the internet as the portal had been shut, following an attempt by some fraudsters to alter results of candidates.
“The board is already investigating the activities of these criminals and will not fail to take very drastic action against those that are behind this,” Benjamin added.
