Following inability of candidates who sat for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to check their results, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation (JAMB) has released new process for resulting checking.
JAMB directed candidates who already sat for the exam to visit the board’s portal to check their results
According to it, the USSD code it earlier advised candidates to use was experiencing challenges.
A statement on Saturday signed by JAMB’s Head of Media and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said owing to the USSD code 55019 failure, the board has opened its portal for result checking by applicants.
It added that following the hitches being experienced, the board had decided to suspend the use of USSD code for results checking.
According to the statement, “It has come to the attention of the Board that the result checking on USSD code 55019 is saddled with some challenges.
“Consequently, the Board hereby directs all candidates to visit the JAMB portal to check for their 2021 UTME result.
“Each candidate is to follow these simple steps: (a) Visit https://www.jamb.gov.ng. (b) On the menu bar, click on efacility. (c) On the page that shows up, click on UTME 2021 Main Results Notification Slip. (d) Enter your registration number and click the button Check My Result
“Candidates can check their results from anywhere there is internet access, checking by USSD code 55019 is suspended.”
