Says Candidates Can Send RESULT to 55019 to have their results.
By Gift Olivia Samuel, The Sight News
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has disclosed that effective from when the Board would announce 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.
This is just as the Board urged candidates to ignore all messages in circulation on how to check the 2019 UTME results, saying that they are all products of deceit aimed at misleading the candidates.
Making these disclosures in its weekly bulletin, JAMBulletin, the Board stated that it 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.
According to JAMB, “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 registeration 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 malpractice, particularly as it pertains to ghost writing and multiple registrations”, it ended.
