According to the JAMB Registrar. Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, who announced the release of the result at a press conference held at the board’s headquarters in Bwari, Abuja, candidates are to start checking their various results from 7am on Tuesday, April 30,2024  by texting RESULT to 55019/66019, using the phone numbers they used to register.

“Candidates are advised to use the phone numbers they used to register to text RESULT to 55019/66019. There is no need to approach any CBT centre or cybercafé to check results.

The following are the responses to be expected hence, a candidate with a result will receive the message: “Dear “Candidate X”, your result is as follows (and the details will be provided).

“Those being processed and those absent would receive “under processing” and “absent” respectively.

“Those under investigation would receive:Verification Investigation ;Under Investigation;Under Investigation;Alleged Infraction”, it said.

Oloyede said,”The Board has observed the recent abuse of the process through the connivance of some centres, institutions and unscrupulous candidates, whereby some CBT centres accept/reject admission offers on behalf of candidates. ”

“They do this to create vacancies for less-qualified but favoured candidates while cybercafés and some candidates do this to blackmail candidates or extort them, ”

He said the new methods of accepting or rejecting admissions will henceforth be:”Either a candidate sends ACCEPT/REJECT on his dedicated phone line to 55019/66019; or a candidate accepts or rejects any admission offer (programme change inclusive) with his/her fingerprint (biometric) at an accredited CBT centre or at any JAMB Office.”

“The above newly-crafted methods of accepting or rejecting admissions, are aimed at protecting the details of the candidates and upholding the sanctity of the admission process.

“With this new method, the candidates’ registered phone (SIM) is now more important than ever was as it is now required to perform even more sensitive operations, ” he said.

He said JAMB was currently holding discussions with the Nigerian Telecommunications Commission, NCC on dedicated student’s SIM with restricted services.
