    Please, before you continue, note that this service will cost you N50 and don’t send this message multiple times, as it brings about multiple charges.

    Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) brought this nostalgic idea of using SMS to check results back to 2019 and then, 2020.

    Although, candidates complained that JAMB refuses to send them their results after entering the message to 55019. We sincerely advise you to wait a while longer before resending the message.

    Note: Most times, when you fail to recharge your account on the first try of sending the message, it’ll take a longer time for you to receive the results on the second try with the N50. Our advice is having that N50 on the first try, don’t forget this.
