JUST IN: JAMB releases additional 531 out of 64000 withheld 2024 UTME results

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the release of an additional 531 results from the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

This decision was communicated through a statement issued on Tuesday by the board’s spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin.

These released results were part of the over 64,000 results that JAMB had initially withheld due to suspected examination infractions.

This recent development brings the total number of released results from the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to 1,842,897, as confirmed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

In addition to releasing results, the Board is also addressing cases involving unverified candidates and plans to provide a stance on these matters soon.

Furthermore, JAMB has denounced false publications alleging that an unknown candidate, who did not participate in the UTME, obtained scores.

The Board described these reports as fake, malicious, and aimed at undermining its integrity. It urged the public to disregard such irresponsible publications.

Highlighting the rigorous examination process, JAMB emphasized that its examination template is meticulously designed and not an allocation platform for doling out scores to candidates.

The Board cautioned candidates against disclosing classified details to third parties, as mischief makers might exploit such information to spread false claims.

In response to allegations of tampering with results, JAMB noted that some individuals have manipulated results by editing details sent to them, which were originally intended for other candidates.

To counteract such misconduct, the Board is considering adding more personalized features like registration numbers to the UTME result-checking process, making it more secure and challenging to tamper with.

JAMB urged anyone with claims or information regarding falsified results to come forward with details and the phone numbers associated with such results.

This proactive approach aims to address and prevent further instances of misinformation and manipulation in the examination process.

JAMB reiterated the importance of candidates keeping their details secure to avoid association with mischievous elements.

Any candidate found collaborating with such individuals will face consequences.

The Board emphasized that, for now, the only authorized method for checking the 2024 UTME results is by sending ‘UTMERESULT’ to either 55019 or 66019. It cautioned against using any other process to access results and reiterated that results are not currently available on the Board’s website.
