Are you among the candidates having issues or problems checking their results? If you have been unable to see your 2023 JAMB result, this post is for you. You must know that at this time, the only method JAMB has provided for candidates to check their results is the Text/SMS method. However, we believe that they are already aware that some candidates are unable to check their results using that method.
So we believe that they will definitely make provision for such candidates to either check results via the board’s website with their registration numbers or the candidates’ profiles. So candidates having issues checking their results are advised to exercise a bit of patience as they would be able to check theirs soon unless yours is among the ones withheld for various irregularities.
Solution To Result Checking Issues
1. Ensure the Phone number you are using to send UTMERESULT to 55019 or 66019 must be the one you used in creating your profile code during registration. If you have lost the Phone number or SIM and do not mind the stress of going through the SIM retrieval process, you can go ahead to retrieve the line and then use it to send the message.
2. Ensure the format of the SMS is UTMERESULT to 55019 or 66019. Note that the result must be in capital letter and it must be spelled “UTMERESULT” and NOT “UTMERESULTS”. Also, there should be no space between UTME and RESULT. It should be sent as one word “UTMERESULT”
3. It could also be that some of the results of a specific day have not been released. JAMB may delay the release of some of the results for some reasons like malpractice, late coming etc Also if there is a widespread irregularity in an exam centre, JAMB may also decide to delay the release of the results in that centre until the issues are sorted out.
4. Some of the issues can equally be a result of a bad network; depending on the network you are using there may be technical hitches that may be resolved with time. So we advise candidates to give it a little time and try again.
Meanwhile, we are going to monitor and know when JAMB has enabled their portal so that candidates can easily check their results online via the JAMB portal. You can check this post to know when it has been enabled.
