2019 UTME: Results To Be Released Today - JAMB



The Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB has declared that the results of students who participated in the examinations which held from April 11 to April 18 would be released by Monday, April 29, 2019.

During an interview with News Agency of Nigeria earlier today in Bwari, the Board’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dr Fabian Benjamin, revealed that  the screening process of the results would be concluded in no time and the result released.

He said;

“We are still screening but hopefully, anytime next week, the results will be ready,”

Benjamin also added that screening of results for UTME candidates from 2009 to 2018, would kick start immediately after the release of the 2019 results.

According to him, this was part of the board’s effort to address the issues of malpractice in the system.

The board stated that the 2019 UTME results is currently undergoing thorough screening to identify and apprehend examination cheats.

The said process which is part of its deliberate effort to properly scrutinize, identify and address all forms of examination malpractice. would expose those involved in multiple registrations through biometric capturing and also address group registration by some elite schools, who end up mixing candidate’s data.

According to the board, the results are expected to be out within 24 to 48 hours as obtained in previous examinations held in 2017 and 2018, however, the board does not want this to be business as usual which has a matter of fact has led to a delay.

The board, while regretting all inconvenience caused in the process, reaffirmed its commitment to providing equal opportunity to all candidates in order to articulate their aspirations.

JAMB said that effective from when it would officially release the results, all candidates can simply send RESULT, via SMS, to 55019 using the same number that was used for registration.

The result, it said, would be replied as an SMS shortly after.

This process, the board explained, was simplified to eliminate exploitation by business centres and cyber cafés who often take advantage of candidates.
It also urged candidates to ignore all messages in circulation on how to check the results as they were all products of deceit.

It was lernt that over 1.8 million candidates registered for the 2019 UTME.
