How To Check Your 2021/2022 UTME Result Through SMS Method
- Step 1: Ensure you are checking with the SIM card you used during registration. Using another unregistered number will be fruitless as it is not recognised by the examination body
- Step 2: Recharge your line or make sure it has sufficient airtime because this method is definitely not for free as you will be charged for the short message service. Specifically, 50 naira will be deducted from your mobile account.
- Step 3: Type “RESULT” and send to 55019. The mobile phone number is strictly for any JAMB related issues, such as result, appointment, and change of course.
Since your mission is to see your result, you should type result to the number and wait for reply from the examination board. Meanwhile, it is important to note that the “result” should be in capital letter.
- Step 4: Your result will be sent to you in less than 10 minutes. The Board will respond to your message by sending you a reply that contains your result.
It will consist of your registered name; registration number will be included in the message while your score in each of the four subjects will also be revealed to you. Lastly, the overall score is also available in the text message that will be sent to you by the Board administrators.
Five Common Reasons Why You May Not Receive Your Result Via The SMS Method
1. You Used Unregistered SIM: In this case, instead of sending your result, JAMB will reply with “This phone number was not used for registration.”
2. Your Result Is Withheld: Due to unruly behaviour during the UTME exams, your result is probably withheld and won’t be released. Instead the response from JAMB will be “Result Withheld”
3. You Were Absent During Examination Days : Another reason why you may not receive your result from jamb via this text message method is because you couldn’t turn up for the examination
This means you are absent and your result will be completely unprocessed. The examination body will send you a message which contains “CANDIDATE ABSENT”
4. Unauthorised Access Into Examination: It is possible you entered straight into examination hall without the permission of the supervisors or presiding exam officers.
If that’s the case, your results will be seized by the board due to violation of rules and regulations.
5. Canceled Registration Number: Here is another reason why your result won’t be sent to you via text. In this case, you will receive a message telling you “Candidate Absent”
