Due to some technical challenges, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has suspended the use of Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) code to check the results of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) it released recently.

Dr. Fabian Benjamin, Media Officer of JAMB, who said this in a statement Saturday, June 26, 2021, explained that the announcement was prompted by challenges being experienced with the use of the USSD 55019 Code by the examination candidates.
