The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has released the result of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
In a statement on Saturday signed by the Head, Public Affairs and Protocol of JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, it directed candidates to check the 2022 UTME result by sending UTMERESULT to 55019 using the same phone number that the candidate used for registration and the result would be returned as a text message.
The statement noted that this is the only process of checking the 2022 UTME results for now as the Board has not uploaded it on its website for obvious reasons.
In addition, candidates were forewarned that they would, as usual, receive all kinds of messages from desperate fraudsters on how to check their results different from the aforementioned one. Hence, the Board urged all candidates to ignore all such messages on how to check their 2022 UTME results as they are all products of deceit aimed at misleading them.
The Board said in line with its desire to adhere to the ease of doing business protocol of the government, it has emplaced this user-friendly and simplified process of checking UTME results.
Furthermore, it stated that this simplified process would also serve to preclude the unconscionable exploitation of candidates by shylock business centres and cybercafes which often take advantage of hapless candidates.
You will recall that the 2022 UTME began on Friday, 6th May, 2022 and ended on Friday 13th May, 2022.
