JAMB Directs Candidates To Official Method For Accessing Results




The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has issued a cautionary statement to the public regarding the presentation of printed result slips for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

 Contrary to circulated claims on social media, the Board clarified that the results are not available in paper format at the moment. Unlike last year, the results are currently inaccessible on the Board’s website.

Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the spokesperson for the examination body, conveyed this information in a statement released on Wednesday.

The statement read, “The Board, once again, wishes to state clearly that the only way to check the 2024 UTME result is to send UTMERESULT to 55019 or 66019 using the same phone used by the candidate in registering for the UTME exercise. Ensure that the SIM is not on any bundle.

“This is different from what was obtained last year; hence, the results are not and cannot be found on the Board’s website at the moment.

“Candidates are urged to follow the method specified above to obtain their results. They need not visit any cybercafe or patronise any third-party entity to check their result.

“The public is also advised to be wary of any candidate parading printed result slip as currently; the result is not on any paper format as being circulated on social media by some individuals.

“A reasonable number of candidates have checked their results as seen on our monitoring dashboard, but for the few still struggling, please follow the right channel.”

On Monday, the Board announced the release of the 2024 UTME results. During a press briefing, the registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, disclosed that out of the registered candidates, 1,904,109 took the examination, while 80,810 were absent.

Prof. Oloyede further elaborated that 64,624 results were under investigation for various reasons. These included cases requiring verification (2,896), procedural investigations (4,594), and instances of prima facie established exam misconduct (78).

Additionally, there were other results under investigation related to centre-based issues involving 57,056 candidates across 18 centres nationwide.
