The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results are not yet available on its website.

On Monday, the exam body announced the release of the results for this year’s examinations.

But in a statement on Wednesday, Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB spokesperson, revealed that the process of checking this year’s results is different from what is obtainable in 2023.

Benjamin said at the moment, the UTME results cannot be found on the JAMB website, adding that candidates can only access their results via the USSD format.

He said it was necessary to put out the information while advising candidates to be wary of those parading printed result slips.

“The board, once again, wishes to state clearly that the only way to check the 2024 UTME result is to send UTMERESULT to 55019 or 66019, using the same phone used by the candidate in registering for the UTME. Ensure that the SIM is not on any bundle,” the statement reads.

“This is different from what obtained last year, hence, the results, at the moment, are not and cannot be found on the board’s website.

“Candidates are urged to follow the method specified above to obtain their results. They need not visit any cybercafe or patronise any third-party entity to check their result.

“The public is also advised to be wary of any candidate parading printed result slip as currently, the result is not on any paper format as being circulated on social media by some individuals.

“A reasonable number of candidates have checked their results as seen on our monitoring dashboard but for the few still struggling, please follow the right channel.”
