Candidates who sat for the 2022 JAMB UTME examinations can now access their results online.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had announced last weekend the release of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination( UTME) results, but revealed a different checking method.
Traditionally, UTME results could be accessed via JAMB online results portal, Naija News understands.
However, the JAMB Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Fabian Benjamin, announced in a statement on Saturday, May 14, 2022 that candidates can only access their JAMB UTME results via phone text message.
The exam body directed candidates to send UTMERESULT to 55019 using the same phone number that was used for JAMB registration 2022 to check their results.
A phone number is used per person just as it was during their online registration.
The statement reads: “To check the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result, all a candidate needs to do is to simply send UTMERESULT to 55019 using the same phone number that he/she had used for registration and the result would be returned as a text message. This is the only process of checking the 2022 UTME results for now as the Board has not uploaded it on its website for obvious reasons.
“In addition, candidates are forewarned that they would, as usual, receive all kinds of messages from desperate fraudsters on how to check their results different from the aforementioned one. Hence, the Board urges all candidates to ignore all such messages on how to check their 2022 UTME results as they are all products of deceit aimed at misleading them.
“The Board, in line with its desire to adhere to the ease of doing business protocol of the government, has emplaced this user-friendly and simplified process of checking UTME results. Furthermore, this simplified process would also serve to preclude the unconscionable exploitation of candidates by shylock business centres and cybercafés, which often take advantage of hapless candidates.”
Naija News recalls that the 2022 UTME began on Friday, 6th May, 2022 and ended on Friday 13th May, 2022.
The latest update from the exam body has confirmed that candidates can now check their JAMB results online
