Check results on your phones not cyber cafes – JAMB advises candidates
The leadership of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has explained that candidates who took the 2019 UTME do not need to visit any cyber café to check their results. Instead, they should make use of their phones and not “allow any Computer-Based Test center to exploit them.”
The exam board further stated that results upload would begin in a week as they are still undergoing screening to identify possible malpractices.
Before now, there have been negative feedbacks about the conduct of the 2019 UTME exercise as many CBT centers experienced technical glitches that slowed down the entire process of the exam, causing JAMB to extend the duration of the exam in the end.
While speaking with newsmen, the board’s head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, explained that JAMB already had a simplified result checking procedure which will help candidates check their results right on their mobile phones.

Benjamin then assured that the process would be announced in the coming days.
He said, “We are working round the clock to ensure the release of UTME results. Most likely, it will be at the upper week. We will use this week to conclude on screening of the results.
“Some stories flying around about how to check UTME results and others are all lies. We have not released any results. As soon as we release results, we will announce to candidates and also explain the process of checking such results. We have simplified the process. Candidates will use their phones. They don’t need to go to any cyber café or internet provider.
“So, candidates should disregard the processes of checking results being peddled around presently. We also did not deduct 100 marks for examination malpractices. If any candidate is found to have indulged in malpractices, such results will be cancelled, not by deduction of marks.”
