The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has directed Candidates who sat for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination( UTME) to check for their results.
Fabian Benjamin, Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, JAMB disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.
The board, directed Candidates to send UTMERESULT to 55019, using the same phone number that was used for registration.
It said, “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 urge 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 put in replaced 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 cyber cafes which often take advantage of hapless Candidates”, according to the JAMB.
