2023 UTME: See the short code needed to check JAMB results 

Nigeria’s Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted between Tuesday, April 25, 2023, and Monday, May 1, 2023.

A total of 1, 595, 779 candidates registered to take the examination in 708 CBT centres in 105 examination towns in the country. It is, however, to be noted that the released results excluded those of candidates who were rescheduled to take their examination on Saturday, April 6, 2023; those absent; those under investigation; as well as those of visually impaired candidates, which are undergoing processing.

This was disclosed by JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, Tuesday.

“To check the results, all a candidate needs to do is to simply send UTMERESULT to 55019 or 66019 using the same phone number that he/she had used for registration and the result would be returned as a text message.

“Also to be noted is the fact that the released results, when checked by candidates, would return the status of the candidates. For instance, with respect to absent or rescheduled candidates, or those under investigation, the response would be: YOU WERE ABSENT, RESCHEDULED OR UNDER INVESTIGATION. Therefore, only candidates who are not under any of these categories would have a returned result,” the statement said.

Benjamin said rescheduled candidates comprised of unverified candidates, candidates at Beautiful Beginning Centre, Apo, Abuja; candidates with data mismatch among others.
