There are two methods through which candidates who wrote the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board can check their result. In this post, we’ll share with you how to check JAMB result through SMS and on the internet.
Two methods of checking JAMB result
- Through Text message (USSD code)
- Through JAMB online facility
Check JAMB result using Text message (USSD code)
If you’re going to write the forthcoming UTME or you wrote the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), you may not need an internet connection to check your result.
You can check your JAMB result simply by sending an SMS.
According to Prof Is-haq Oloyede, JAMB registrar, it’s meant to simplify the process for admission seekers who do not have an internet connection.
Using SMS to check JAMB result
- Send RESULT as an SMS to 55019 using the same phone number that was used for registration.
- An SMS will be sent back to your phone number displaying your UTME 2019 results.
You can’t use another phone number to check your JAMB result, you can only do so with the phone number you used during registration.
It can simply be described as JAMB result made easy. JAMB says candidates should not “allow any Computer-Based Test centre to exploit them.”
The board added that the examination results were, however, still undergoing screening for malpractices and would be released any time “next week.”
The JAMB Head of Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said the board had designed a process, which would be announced shortly, to enable candidates to access their results through their mobile phones, without having to go through a CBT centre or a cyber cafe.
“We are working round the clock to ensure the release of UTME results. Most likely, it will be at the upper week. We will use this week to conclude on screening of the results.
“Some stories flying around about how to check UTME results and others are all lies. We have not released any results. As soon as we release results, we will announce to candidates and also explain the process of checking such results. We have simplified the process. Candidates will use their phones. They don’t need to go to any cyber café or internet provider.
“So, candidates should disregard the processes of checking results being peddled around presently. We also did not deduct 100 marks for examination malpractices. If any candidate is found to have indulged in malpractices, such results will be cancelled, not by deduction of marks,” The Punch quoted him as saying.
We will keep you updated on how to check your JAMB result on your mobile phone.
