The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that candidates who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) can check their results via their phones through a text message with a registration number
Concise News reports that the 2019 UTME took place from April 11 to April 18, with over 1.8 million candidates registering for it.
When Will JAMB 2019 Results Be Out?
Speaking on the release of the UTME results for 2019, JAMB’s Head of Media and Publicity, Fabian Benjamin, told candidates to start checking their results from Monday, April, 29th, 2019.
“We are still screening but hopefully, anytime next week, the results will be ready,” he told NAN on Saturday.
“Normally, results are expected to be out within 24 to 48 hours as obtained in previous examinations held in 2017 and 2018.
“However, the board does not want this to be business as usual. Hence the programmed delay, which is part of its deliberate effort to properly scrutinize, identify and address all forms of examination malpractice.
“The board will continue to act decisively with regards to any irregularity discovered even after results are released.”
How To Check JAMB 2019 Results With Phone, Text Message, Registration Number?
For all candidates, they can check their JAMB 2019 results with a phone like this:
1. Send RESULT as an SMS to 55019 using the same number that was used for registration.
2. An SMS will be sent back to your phone carrying your JAMB 2019 results.
JAMB said it simplified the way to check results for the 2019 examination to avoid extortion of candidates! Good luck as you check your 2019 JAMB results!
In a related development, JAMB has debunked a trending report that scores of candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) are being reduced, describing it as fake.
In a statement, the Board said the report was false.
The report had claimed that scores of candidates who sat for the UTME and were found wanting by the board were being reduced by 100 marks.
