The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has officially released the result of candidates who sat for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). ayokinews.com reports
The board’s head of public affairs and protocol, Fabian Benjamin, made the announcement on Saturday.
The UTME for 2022 started on May 6 and was concluded on May 13.
Candidates who took the examination can now proceed with the checking their results by texting “UTMERESULT” to 55019 via the phone number they used to register.
“All a candidate needs to do is to simply send UTMERESULT to 55019 using the same phone number that he/she had used for registration and the result would be returned as a text message,” he said.
“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.”
According to Benjamin, candidates must be wary of con artists that promise alternate methods of checking and upgrading results.
“Candidates are 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,” he added.
“The board urges 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 has emplaced this user-friendly and simplified process of checking UTME results.
“Furthermore, this simplified process would also serve to preclude the unconscionable exploitation of candidates by shylock business centres and cyber cafes that often take advantage of helpless candidates.”
