After successfully sitting for the JAMB UTME 2023, the next thing is to check your result. In this post, I’ll explain how you can check your JAMB UTME 2023 result online or via SMS. Note that you can use your phone to check your UTME result using both methods.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) conducts the most popular university, polytechnic, and COE entrance examinations in Nigeria.
If you’re among the students who sat for the 2023 Unified Matriculation Exams (UTME), then you can check for your result online.
Alternatively, you can check your result by sending an SMS to a code we’ll be sharing with you soon. After which, you’ll get a notification (in the form of an SMS) containing your score.
The use of SMS is one of the fastest options for most users, as you do not require an internet connection, and will not face any issues as a result of JAMB website server congestions.
Is JAMB 2023 Result Out?
Yes. As of when this post was updated, you can check your results via SMS or online.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has declared that the results of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will be made available starting from May 2, 2023, according to a statement released by JAMB spokesperson Dr Fabian Benjamin. He made the announcement after an emergency management meeting held in Abuja over the weekend.
JAMB stated that the delay in releasing the results was due to the need to complete all necessary screenings and determine reasonable mean and standard deviation values before releasing the results to the public.
Meanwhile, JAMB has revealed that certain candidates who had difficulties during the exam will be able to retake it on May 6, 2023, under close supervision. These candidates include those who were unable to take the test despite being authenticated at their centers, those who were unable to undergo biometric verification, and those with inconsistent data.
How to Check JAMB 2023 Result by SMS
Before we commence, make sure to have a minimum of 50 naira in your phone number. Without that, you won’t be able to check your UTME result by SMS. The network will charge for checking your result via SMS is N50 only.
If you do, follow the steps below to check your UTME result via SMS:
- Using the phone number you registered with JAMB, send the message “UTMERESULT” to 55019 or 66019.
- You will receive a message confirming the deduction of 50 naira from your credit.
- Wait for a few minutes for JAMB to send your result to your phone number in the form of an SMS.
A lot of candidates have complained that they failed to receive any message after following the above steps. If that’s the case for you, then you have to try again some other time or day. The reason is, the number of queries for results is really high, which may as a consequence lead to network congestion.
But make sure not to send the result checking SMS more than once within the space of a few minutes, so as not to waste your money.
How to Check JAMB 2023 Result Online
Follow the steps below to check your 2023 UTME result on the JAMB facility website. Note that you will need to pay the sum of N1,500, as this prints your original result and not just the statement.
Step 2. Type in the email address and password you used during registration and click on login.
Step 3. Click on “Print Result Slip” after you’re logged in to the JAMB eFacility portal.
Step 4: Select your desired payment option to proceed to checking and printing your result slip. You can use Remita or an ATM Card to make the payment.
Step 5: Select your “Examination year” which is “2023 UTME” and proceed to print your JAMB result slip.
You can complete the above steps using a mobile phone and any compatible mobile browser. However, it is advisable that you use a computer so that you’ll be able to print or save the page for printing.
If you have no experience with all this and you’re not too good at using the internet, all you have to do is visit any cyber cafe near you.
Alternatively, ask a friend or any of your relatives who’s more conversant with the use of the internet.
The reason we used the method above instead of the regular result-checking method is that this works even if the result-checking portal is facing congestion.
What you should know about UTME 2023
According to a statement from JAMB registrar: “the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board released the results of 1,792,719 candidates who sat for the 2023 UTME, while the results of 34,120 candidates were withheld due to various infractions.
If you sent the message “RESULT” to 55019 and didn’t receive any feedback, it is not necessarily an indication that your result was withheld. As we’ve earlier indicated, the network may be congested at that moment; try again some other time.
After checking your result, and you have performed up to the cut off mark, the next thing to do is to wait till admission is processed on CAPS.
