JAMB’s 2022 UTME Results Out

0 122

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

The examination body on Saturday in a statement by the head of its public affairs and protocol unit, Fabian Benjamin, said the results have not been uploaded on its website but can be obtained by the candidates by sending “UTMERESULT to 55019.”

Only the number used by the candidates to register for the examination will be eligible for sending such codes, according to JAMB.

The statement reads in part; “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. differ 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.”

JAMB added that in line with its desire to adhere to the ease of doing business protocol 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,” it added.

This year’s UTME was conducted across 750 computer-based centres nationwide and cyber cafes Friday, May 6, and Friday 13, 2022.

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

JAMB keeps mum over identified hitches
There were, however, reported cases of minor technical hitches recorded in some centres nationwide including failure of biometric over-identified lines, computer malfunctions and incomplete questions.

But the examination body is yet to officially acknowledge these challenges, especially the incomplete questions, and has not responded to inquiries by parents and candidates on what to expect as remedies to the issues.

There were, however, instances where candidates were asked to return home by the examination officials with a pledge that they would be rescheduled for the examination.
