The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of candidates who sat in more than 720 CBT centres for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted between Saturday, June 19 and Tuesday, June 22, 2021.
A statement by Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s spokesperson on Friday morning directed candidates to check their result by sending UTMERESULT to 55019 through the GSM number used by each candidate to obtain profile code and UTME registration with the Board and their results would be relayed to them.
He explained that the result for subsequent days would be released daily.
Benjamin noted that the Board was satisfied with the utilisation of NIN (National Identification Number) for the registration of candidates for the examination, stressing that it has helped in curbing examination malpractices as the 2021 UTME has recorded the least incidence of irregularities since the inception of the CBT examinations in Nigeria.
“Nevertheless, the Board would still review all the CCTV footages and other technical gadgets for detection of possible examination misconducts,” he added.
According to him, extremely comparatively few results are being withheld for further investigation, noting that the Board would not hesitate to withdraw the results of any candidate subsequently found to have committed any form of examination misconduct.
