The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the suspension of the USSD code 55019 to check results.
Naija News recalls that JAMB in a statement on Friday had asked candidates to check their results by sending UTMERESULT to 55019 through the GSM number used by each candidate to obtain profile code and UTME registration with the board and their results would be relayed to them.
But in a terse statement on Saturday, JAMB’s Head of Media and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said the USSD code 55019 is saddled with some challenges.
Benjamin urged candidates henceforth “to visit JAMB portal to check for their 2021 UTME result.
“It has come to the attention of the Board that the result checking on USSD code 550 19 is saddled with some challenges.Each candidate is to follow these simple steps.

“Candidates can check their results from anywhere there is internet access, checking by USSD code 55019 is suspended,” he added.
Recall that JAMB had released the results of candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The released UTME results were for students who sat for the exam on Saturday, 19th and Tuesday, 22 June 2021.
The exam body revealed that the result for subsequent days would be released daily.
