By: Ogunleye Oluwapelumi


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has alerted Nigerians to be cautious of individuals circulating printed result slips on social media, as the 2024 UTME results are not currently available in paper format.


According to JAMB’s spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the board has noticed some individuals sharing fake printed result slips online, which is misleading and unauthorized.


JAMB has reiterated that the only official way to check the 2024 UTME results is by sending “UTMERESULT” to 55019 or 66019 using the same phone number used during registration. Candidates are advised to follow this method and avoid visiting cybercafes or patronizing third-party entities to check their results. The board has also clarified that the results are not available on its website, unlike last year.


He said,“The board, once again, wishes to state clearly that the only way to check the 2024 UTME result is to send UTMERESULT to 55019 or 66019, using the same phone used by the candidate in registering for the UTME. Ensure that the SIM is not on any bundle.


“This is different from what obtained last year, hence, the results, at the moment, are not and cannot be found on the board’s website.


“Candidates are urged to follow the method specified above to obtain their results. They need not visit any cybercafe or patronise any third-party entity to check their result.


“The public is also advised to be wary of any candidate parading printed result slip as currently, the result is not on any paper format as being circulated on social media by some individuals” he added.
