JAMB releases 2022 UTME results, alerts candidates to fraudulent messages


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Announcing this in Abuja on Saturday, JAMB said in a statement signed by its spokesman, Mr. Fabian Benjamin that results were yet to be uploaded on its website but could be obtained by the candidates by sending ‘UTMERESULT to 55019’.

JAMB said 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,” it said.

It emphasised 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.”

The examination body also alerted candidates 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, it 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.”

It added: “The Board, in line with its desire to adhere to the ease of doing business protocol of the government, 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 cybercafes which often take advantage of hapless candidates.

The UTME was conducted across 750 computer-based centres nationwide between Friday, May 6 and Friday 13, 2022.

According to JAMB, more than 1.7 million candidates, including 383 blind candidates, took part in the examinations.
