The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of candidates who sat for its 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) between the dates June 19 and 22.
Fabian Benjamin, JAMB spokesman, broke the news on Friday. He said more results will be released daily.
He asked candidates to check the results by sending “UTMERESULT” to 55019 on the phone number used by each candidate to obtain details including a profile code, after which their results would be sent to them.
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, June 19 and Tuesday, June 22, 2021,” he said.
Each concerned candidate is advised to check his/her result by sending UTMERESULT to 55019 through the GSM number used by each candidate to obtain profile code and UTME registration with the Board.
Their results would be relayed to them. Results for subsequent days would be released daily.
The board notes with satisfaction that the utilisation of NIN has helped in curbing exam 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 (closed-circuit television) footage and other technical gadgets for detection of possible examination misconducts.
Extremely comparatively few results are being withheld for further investigation. The board would not hesitate to withdraw the results of any candidate subsequently found to have committed any form of exam misconduct.
JAMB had earlier blamed a drop in the revenue from the 2021 form sales on its introduction of the NIN requirement.
