The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in announcing the release of the results of the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) also advised the candidates on how to check them.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede directed the candidates to send ‘RESULT’ to 55019, on their mobile phones, used to register for the exam.
Candidates should send RESULT, via SMS, to 55019 using the same number that was used for registration (you must have a credit balance of at least N50 on your line).
The result, would be replied as an SMS shortly after.
Another way to check for your results is:
- Go to JAMB result checking portal at http://www.jamb.org.ng/eFacility/CheckUTMEResults.
- Enter your JAMB Registration Number/Email Address in the required column.
- Click on ‘Check My Results’ and the portal will load your result if it’s ready.
Note that UTME results are released in batches. Expected responses can be the following:-
If a candidate uses a phone number that was not used to register, a message will be sent to him thus: ‘This phone number was not used for registration.”
A candidate with a result will receive the message: “Dear Mr/Miss X, your result is as follows… (and the details will be provided).
If a result is withheld, a “Result Withheld” message will be sent to the candidate.
If a candidate belongs to the category being given the benefit of the doubt, the message to the person will be: “Result withheld pending the upload of clarifications/document required from you.”
If a candidate was absent, s/he would get “CANDIDATE ABSENT” as feedback
A candidate that was ABSENT WITH REGISTRATION NUMBER also CANCELLED will be so informed.
“Invalid Entrance into the Exam Hall” will be sent to a candidate who gained unauthorized access to the examination hall.
