JAMB Releases Supplementary UTME Results

THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of candidates, who participated in the supplementary Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted between June 21 and June 22, 2024.

This was announced in a statement issued by the JAMB spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Friday, June 28, 2024.


Benjamin said the supplementary examination was conducted for 28,835 candidates, who were unable to be biometrically verified during the main 2024 UTME.

He noted that the other category of candidates were those suspected to have been involved in examination malpractices during the main UTME but who were given a second chance to write the examination.

The JAMB spokesman noted: “The exercise, which recorded a huge success nationwide, was marked by heightened security measures put in place by the Board to preclude any instance of examination infractions.

“As such, some nefarious characters, who had attempted to impersonate bona fide candidates were apprehended and handed over to law enforcement agencies for further investigation and prosecution.”

Benjamin said JAMB will continue to ensure that no candidate benefits from any acts of infractions through the deployment of state-of-the-art technology before, during, and after its examinations.

He, therefore, urged candidates in their own interest to refrain from engaging in any form of irregularities during their examinations.

He also enjoined candidates to desist from soliciting score upgrades from fraudsters or engage in the mutilation of their result sheets while trying to generate fake result sheets with higher scores.

The JAMB spokesperson advised candidates to check their supplementary UTME results, candidates by sending UTMERESULT to either 55019 or 66019 through the same phone number they had used to generate their profile codes at the start of registration.
