It is no longer news that the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) was concluded on Wednesday, 17th April and so far, most participants are eager to see their results. I’ll love to advise all candidates who sat for the UTME exercise that once they check their JAMB result, you may need to immediately Print your results.

Issues we encountered last year while candidates were checking their result is this. The results of some candidates allegedly changed in the past that after checking results on their smartphones but did not print it out, the result of some candidates was reduced/increase. I hope this issue will not repeat itself this year since the UTME board are patiently taking their time to ensure that all candidates result is out.
