The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has given assurance that the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination results would be ready from Monday April 29th, 2019. This was made known by the Board’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dr Fabian Benjamin, while speaking to newsmen in Bwari on Saturday.
According to him, “We are still screening but hopefully, anytime next week, the results will be ready.”
He mentioned that normally, results are expected to be out within 24 to 48 hours as obtained in previous examinations held in 2017 and 2018. However, the board does not want this to be business as usual. Hence the delay, which is part of its deliberate effort to properly scrutinize, identify and address all forms of examination malpractice.
The board, while regretting all inconvenience caused in the process, reaffirmed its commitment to providing equal opportunity to all candidates in order to articulate their aspirations.
JAMB said that effective from when it would officially release the results, all candidates can simply send RESULT, via SMS, to 55019 using the same number that was used for registration.
The result, it said, would be replied as an SMS shortly after.
