JAMB 2022 Results2022 UTME: JAMB Explains why Some Results are Still Unavailable

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has explained why some UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) results from 2022 have been delayed and may not be issued.

On Saturday, May 14, 2022, JAMB announced the release of the 2022 UTME results, instructing candidates to check their scores by texting UTMERESULT to 55019.

Despite JAMB’s notification, several candidates have been unable to get their results. Dr Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, enumerated reasons why a candidate’s result could be withheld in an interview with PUNCH on Monday.

According to him, the board withheld some results due to malpractice, misbehavior, procedural violations, and an insufficient examination of the center.

He also urged candidates to check their results properly to avoid any incorrect assumptions.

He said; “We have released results for this batch. There are many factors that can lead to a result being withheld. It could be as a result of examination malpractice, the candidate’s inability to conduct himself or herself properly, a breach in procedural process or a review of the centre.”

In a previous JAMB Bulletin, the board stated that applicants found guilty of malpractices will have their results withheld.

“About 1.4 million candidates have taken the examination across the country so far,” according to the bulletin, “with some examination towns and centers completing their own allotted number of candidates for the year while the results of sessions already taken will be released to the respective candidates.”

Many candidates have claimed to have seen their results since the announcement on Saturday. Several others, on the other hand, are still waiting for theirs, since the board is currently deciding whether or not to release it.

Dr. Fabian explained that “To check the 2022 UTME result, all a candidate needs to do is to simply send UTMERESULT to 55019 using the same phone number that he or she used for registration.

“The result will be sent as a response to the candidate’s text message. 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.

In addition, 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
