How to Check 2019 JAMB UTME Scores

This is to inform all that candidates that  participated in the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) 2019/2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that the board has released the process for checking 2019 UTME Results.

Effective from when the Board would announced the release of the 2019 UTME results, all a candidate who wishes to check his/her results needs to do is to simply send RESULT to 55019 using the same phone number that was used for registration and his/her result would be returned as a Text Message.

Candidates are urged to ignore all messages in circulation on how to check the 2019 UTME results, they are all products of deceit aimed at misleading the candidates.

The Board has simplified the process of checking the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results conducted from Thursday, 11th to Thursday, 18th April, 2019 for candidates thereby precluding their unconscionable exploitation by shylock business centres and cybercafes which often take advantage of candidates.

After a thorough, rigorous and successful screening process to identify and apprehend examination cheats especially those involved in multiple registration through the combination of fingers for biometric capturing, group/ bulk registration by elite schools which end up mixing candidates’ data, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board JAMB) would release the results of the 2019 UTME.

The examinations began on Thursday, 11 April, 2019, and as usual, the 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 the release of the 2019 UTME results to be business as usual hence the programmed delay which is part of its deliberate efforts to properly scrutinize, identify and address all forms of examination malpractices, particularly as it pertains to ghost writing and multiple registrations.
