Abuja, Nigeria– The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the release of an additional 531 results from the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to the total number of results released to 1,842,897.

Dr Benjamin said that the board also looking at cases of unverified candidates and would soon come up with a position.

It described the reports as fake, malicious and a calculated attempt to undermine the integrity of the Board, urging the public to disregard such irresponsible publications.

“To underscore the fact that the publication is crafted by mischief makers to paint the Board in bad light, the publication, which levels such a grevious allegation, has no details of the candidate for proper verification.

“The Board is not surprised as this is the season of mischief makers, who would want to deceive gullible candidates. The examination template of the Board is designed with the highest sense of responsibility and is not an allocation platform where scores are doled out to candidates. It is most unfortunate that anybody could even believe such narration or that the story could even gain traction given the Board’s integrity.

“This again has gone to further vindicate the Board’s stance that candidates should desist from disclosing their classified details to third-parties.

“In investigating some of these allegations, the Board discovered that some of these mischief makers copy results sent to other candidates, edit the details sent to themselves and then parade this as emanating from the Board,” the statement added.

The Board further challenged any candidate, parent or anyone with such a claim or information to prove it wrong by coming forward with the details of such claims and the phone number with which such results were conveyed.

“The attitude of these mischief makers would only propel the Board to further tighten the process of checking its results to make it more personalized and sure would be stringent when it should actually be a simple and straightforward exercise,” he stated.

Consequently, the Board said it was primed to adding more features like registration number to the existing UTME Result checking process going forward to make it extra difficult for anybody to edit.

Candidates were, therefore, urged to keep their details secure, for if they are found associating with any of these mischievous elements, they would be treated as collaborators.

The Board added that the method of checking the 2024 UTME remains sending ‘UTMERESULT’ to 55019 or 66019 and not through any other process, while reiterating that the result, at the moment, was not available on the Board’s website.
