The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released result of candidates who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The 2019 UTME was conducted from April 11 to April 18 and over 1.8 million candidates registered for it.
The board also withheld the results of 34,120 candidates for various infractions.
Speaking in Abuja on Saturday at a Press Conference announcing the release of the results, the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, directed candidates to send ‘RESULT’ to the short code, 55019, on their handsets, adding that they did not need to patronise a cyber cafe to check their results.
The code should be sent using the same phone number that candidates used to register for the examination, the Registrar said.
The checking of the result is as follows: Type ‘RESULT’ candidate’s surname, first name, and middle name, and then send to the short code.
The service costs N50.
