The board instructed candidates to check their results by sending UTME RESULT to 55019 through the GSM number used by each candidate to obtain profile code and UTME registration with JAMB and their results would be sent to them.
“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 conducted between Saturday, 19th and Tuesday, 22 June 2021.
“Each concerned candidate is advised to check his/her result by sending UTME RESULT 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. Result for subsequent days would be released daily.
“The Board notes with satisfaction that the utilisation of NIN (National Identification Number) 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.
“Extremely comparatively few results are being withheld for further investigation.
“In addition, the Board would not hesitate to withdraw the results of any candidate subsequently found to have committed any form of examination misconduct,” the statement read.
2021 UTME: How to check JAMB results via SMS using your phone number
Candidates who sat for the 2021 UTME examination, according to JAMB, can access their results via SMS from their various mobile devices following this procedure:
- Candidates are expected to send ‘UTMERESULT’ via SMS to 55019 with the phone number they used in registration for JAMB.
If any candidate uses a phone number different from the one he registered with, he will get a response telling him the number was not used for registration.
Candidates who check their UTME results with their registered number will get a message which will read as “Dear Mr/Miss X, your result is as follows…”
But for candidates whose results were withheld by JAMB, the examination body will send them a message telling them “Result Withheld.”
