The Joint Administrations and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released results of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
This comes over a week after the exam commenced and a day after it ended.
The board in a statement, Saturday, directed candidates who sat for the examination to check their results by texting “Send UTMERESULT ( one word) to 55019″ to have their results.”
“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,” the statement read.
It read further, “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 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 cybercafes which often take advantage of hapless candidates.”
JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede had during the week attributed the delayed release of results to some checks for malpractices.
The 2022 UTME began on Friday, 6th May, 2022 and ended on Friday 13th May, 2022.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
