The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted between Tuesday, 25th April, 2023, and Monday, 1st May, 2023.
JAMB Spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin disclosed the development in a statement issued on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.
Benjamin explained that a total of 1,595, 779 candidates had registered to take the examination in 708 CBT centres in 105 examination towns in the country.
He however, noted that the released results excluded those of candidates who were rescheduled to take their examination on Saturday, 6th April, 2023, those absent, those under investigation, as well as those of visually impaired candidates, which were undergoing processing.
The statement read in part:
“To check the results, all a candidate needs to do is to simply send UTMERESULT to 55019 or 66019 using the same phone number that he/she had used for registration and the result would be returned as a text message. Also to be noted is the fact that the released results, when checked by candidates, would return the status of the candidates.
“For instance, with respect to absent or rescheduled candidates, or those under investigation, the response would be: YOU WERE ABSENT, RESCHEDULED OR UNDER INVESTIGATION. Therefore, only candidates who are not under any of these categories would have a returned result.
“For the purpose of clarity, rescheduled candidates comprised the following:
A. Unverified Candidates
B. Candidates at Beautiful Beginning CBT Centre, Apo, Abuja
C. Candidates rescheduled to take the examination on thursday, 27th April, 2023, but who could not receive the notification
D. Candidates in centres with reduced capacity
E. Candidates with data mismatch
“All candidates under the categories listed above are required to print their slips on or before Thursday, 4th and Friday 5th May, 2023, so as to know the time and venue of their examination.
“Candidates are to note that they would be grouped in a central location within their respective States to sit the examination hence the need for them to print their notification slips latest by Thursday, 4th May, 2023, so as to make sufficient arrangements to take their examination”.
