The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The examination body announced this in a statement signed by its Head of Public Affairs and Protocol Unit, Fabian Benjamin, on Saturday.
According to Benjamin, the results are not yet uploaded on JAMB’s website, but candidates can access the results by sending “UTMERESULT to 55019.”
He noted that only the number used by the candidates to register for the examination will be eligible for sending such codes.
“To check the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result, 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. 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 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.
“Hence, 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 statement read in part.
Benjamin stated that in line with JAMB’s desire to adhere to the ease of doing business of the government, it “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 cybercafes which often take advantage of hapless candidates,” he added.
The UTME was conducted at 750 computer-based test centres across the country and held between Friday, May 6, and Friday 13, 2022.
