Nigeria’s Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced a new process of checking the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) after shutting down its online portal.

The JAMB Management stated that the new method of checking UTME results was borne out of the activities of cyber fraudsters.

UTME candidates, then, should check their examination results, using their unique telephone numbers, it said.

“JAMB has not cancelled the results of its examination conducted on Saturday, March 14, Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17, 2020.

“Therefore, candidates should disregard rumours making the rounds that the results have been cancelled.

“To check their results, candidates are to send ‘RESULT’ to 55019 with their unique phone number and not on the Board’s Web site,” it tweeted.

Recall that there were reports that candidates who took the UTME Monday, March 16 could not access their results, causing fears that their results might have been cancelled.

Hitherto, UTME candidates could access their results on the JAMB online portal or their profile pages.
