Are you aware that JAMB has officially disclosed that they will be releasing the JAMB UTME Results ‘Anytime Next Week’, starting from 29th April to 3rd May 2019.
The board said that effective from when it would officially release the results, all candidates can simply send RESULT as an SMS to 55019 using the same number which they used during their JAMB Registration and Profile creation (It is usually the same number though).
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released an official statement, revealing to all participants of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that they will be able to check jamb results anytime from Monday, April 29th.
Statistics released by the board disclosed that more than 1.8 Million candidates registered for the 2019 UTME, which was conducted from Tueday, April 11th to Wednesday, April 18th, 2019.
Speaking on this exciting development, the Board’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, reveals on Saturday, saying;
“We are still screening but hopefully, anytime from next week, the results of all participants will be ready for checking”.
Dr. Fabian who is never shy of speaking his mind, said that the board is aware of the time taken to release 2019 Participants result. He said and I quote below:
“Normally, results are expected to be out within 24 to 48 hours after the examination, as is the case in 2017 and 2018.
“However, the board is putting everything in order and does not want any foul play or those involved in malpractice to seen their results. The delay of UTME results is an effort from JAMB 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 candidates have checked their results.” This means that even if you have checked your result and JAMB later discovered that you participated in Examination malpractice, your result will be cancelled.
JAMB said that once the result is out, all candidates can simply send RESULT as a SMS, to 55019 using the same number that was used for JAMB profile creation and registration.
Once you have done this, you will receive an SMS shortly after containing your results.
This newly introduced process by the board is to help eliminate the exploitation of JAMB candidates by business centres and cyber cafés who often take advantage of candidates who are eager to check their results.
JAMB also urged candidates to ignore all messages in circulation on how to check the results, disclosing that it’s not true.
