The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has released the results of candidates who sat for its 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).


Fabian Benjamin, the board’s head of public affairs and protocol, announced this in a statement on Saturday.

The 2022 UTME began on May 6 and ended on May 13.

The spokesman said candidates who sat for the exam can now proceed to check their results.


Benjamin said they’re to send “UTMERESULT” to 55019 using the phone number with which they registered.

“All a candidate needs to do is to simply send UTMERESULT to 55019 using the same phone number that he/she had used for registration and the result would be returned as a text message,” he said.

“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.”


Benjamin urged candidates to beware of fraudsters offering alternative ways of checking the results.

“Candidates are forewarned that they would, as usual, receive all kinds of messages from desperate fraudsters on how to check their results, different from the aforementioned one,” he added.

“The board urges all candidates to ignore all such messages on how to check their 2022 UTME results as they are all products of deceit aimed at misleading them.

“The board has emplaced this user-friendly and simplified process of checking UTME results.


“Furthermore, this simplified process would also serve to preclude the unconscionable exploitation of candidates by shylock business centres and cyber cafes that often take advantage of hapless candidates.”
