JAMB Result

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is recognised by law to conduct entrance examinations into Nigeria’s various universities/polytechnics/colleges/other tertiary institutions.

Candidates that participated in the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted between Saturday, 6th May and Sunday, 15th May 2022, can now check their results online or via SMS.

How to Check 2022 JAMB Result

There are two options for checking JAMB results. Candidates can check their results online (through the JAMB portal) or via SMS (using JAMB shortcodes). 

Using the online option is totally free, you only need an internet-enabled device to be able to check your result. The SMS option is good for candidates with no internet-enabled device or candidates in locations with a terrible network. However, network providers will charge for using the SMS option. 

As of the time of this publication, the 2022 JAMB results are yet to be uploaded online. Candidates can only check their results via SMS [this is the only process of checking the 2022 UTME results for now as the Board has not uploaded it on its website for obvious reasons.]

Check JAMB Result Offline (via SMS)

  • All candidates can now send UTMERESULT (without spacing) via SMS, to 55019 or 66019 using the same number used for registration (you must have a credit balance of at least N50 on your line). The result would be replied to you as an SMS shortly after.
    The following are the responses to be expected:
    • If a candidate uses a phone number that was not used to register, a message will be sent to him thus: ‘This phone number was not used for registration.”
    • A candidate with a result will receive the message: “Dear Mr/Miss X, your result is as follows… (and the details will be provided).
    • A “Result Withheld” message will be sent to the candidate if a result is withheld.
    • Suppose a candidate belongs to the category being given the benefit of the doubt. In that case, the message to the person will be: “Result withheld pending the upload of clarifications/document required from you.”
    • If a candidate were absent, s/he would get “CANDIDATE ABSENT” as feedback
    • A candidate that was ABSENT WITH REGISTRATION NUMBER also CANCELLED will be so informed.
    • “Invalid Entrance into the Exam Hall” will be sent to a candidate who gained unauthorised access to the examination hall.
