The latest announcement from the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) sheds light on the process of accessing JAMB 2024 results. This update is important for candidates who participated in this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Unlike previous years, JAMB has implemented a significant change regarding result distribution for the 2024 session. According to the official communication, there will be no provision for printing JAMB result slip(s) this year. It’s crucial to note that the 2024 UTME results will not be distributed in hard copy format. Therefore, candidates are cautioned against trusting printed result slips shared on social media platforms, as they lack authenticity.

Alternative methods for result access​

JAMB strongly advises candidates against using third-party services to check their 2024 UTME results. The sole authorised method for result retrieval is through SMS. By sending the message “UTMERESULT” to either 55019 or 66019 using the registered phone number, candidates can access their scores. It’s imperative to ensure that the SIM card has sufficient airtime, as the service incurs a fee of ₦50 only.

Crucial information for result access​

Please take note of the following vital points in the absence of JAMB result slip printing for 2024:

  • Lost phone number: In case of a lost or damaged JAMB registered phone number, candidates must contact their mobile network provider for retrieval. That is the only way to access your 2024 JAMB results because there’s no opportunity for result slips printing.
  • Fees paid on JAMB portal: Candidates who made payments on the JAMB portal for result checking or result slip printing in 2024 may have forfeited their money due to the revised process.
  • “Under Investigation” Status: Results marked as “under investigation” may be released after JAMB completes its inquiry.
  • “Results Withheld” Status: Results labeled as “results withheld” may not be released due to suspected exam malpractice.

Final thoughts on JAMB 2024 result slip printing​

While this change may deviate from previous practices, JAMB encourages all candidates to embrace the designated SMS method for result checking. Perhaps, later in the year, JAMB result slip printing for 2024 may commence for admission purposes in respective institutions. However, as of now, this option remains unavailable.
