JAMB cautions against reliance on printed UTME result slips, stating 2024 results aren’t available in paper format.

Candidates advised to use designated SMS method for result inquiry, as 64,624 results remain withheld pending investigation.

JAMB has issued a warning to the public regarding the circulation of printed UTME result slips, emphasizing that the 2024 results are not accessible in paper format.

VerseNews reports that Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the board’s spokesperson, highlighted that the current process involves sending a text message to designated numbers using the phone number used during registration.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Benjamin clarified that unlike the previous year, the 2024 UTME results cannot be found on the JAMB website.

Candidates are urged to adhere to the specified method of checking their results and refrain from visiting cybercafes or third-party entities.

The public is cautioned to be vigilant against individuals presenting printed result slips, as the current results are not available in paper format.

Benjamin emphasized the importance of following the correct channels to obtain results and discouraged reliance on unofficial sources.

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.

“A reasonable number of candidates have checked their results as seen on our monitoring dashboard but for the few still struggling, please follow the right channel.”

A check by this Online News Platform shows an error message in the JAMB website confirming the glitches currently experienced.
