Candidates of the Unified Tertiary and
Matriculation Examination(UTME) have decried
technical challenges faced in accessing by
telephone, the just-released results.

And the Joint Admissions and Matriculation
Board, which conducted the examination,
admitted the problem but said it was working
in collaboration with telephone service
providers to resolve the glitches.

JAMB on Saturday directed the candidates to
use the same telephone numbers used in
registering for the examination to access their
results by sending ‘RESULT’ to the code,
Mrs. Bridget Otuagha, a parent, expressed
worries at the challenge her son was facing to
get his result.

According to her, ever since the result was
announced, her son had tried without success
to check his result as directed by the board.

“I am sick with worry about this whole thing.
My son has been trying to get his result since
Saturday to no avail.

“He has been sending this ‘RESULT’ to the said
code up until this morning, and there has been
no response to that effect.

“This is getting not just him, but the entire
family worried. JAMB should please see if there
is another way to this situation,’’ Otuagha told

Mrs. Florence Ibem, another concerned
parent, also told NAN that her son was equally
having the same issue, checking his score for
the same examination.

“Since they released the result, we have not
been able to access his score through the
telephone number we used in acquiring the
registration pin.

“After sending RESULT to the said code
severally, we only waited to see that no
response whatsoever will follow. This is
disturbing and frustrating.

“Something should be done and urgently too.
Even if it is withheld or canceled, I think we
deserve to know,’’ Ibem said.

When contacted, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the
board’s Head, Media and Information,
apologized to the affected persons on behalf of
the board.

According to him, the challenge is from the
service providers.

Benjamin said that the board had received
complaints concerning the development and
summoned the service providers for a meeting
on the issue.

“We have just had a meeting with the service
providers and they have assured that they are
working hard to get the issue addressed and
that in no distant time, candidates should be
able to access their results without hitch.

“We are just trying to ensure that all the
candidates deserving of results should have
firsthand information of their performance via
their telephones.

“It is after that, that we will go ahead and post
it to our website for candidates to go ahead
and print.

“We are just trying to safeguard these results
from the activities of fraudsters.

“We want candidates to know their scores first
so that on getting to print them out at the
business centers, there would not be anything
funny on their slips,’’ the JAMB spokesman

NAN reports that of the over 1.8 million
candidates that registered for the examination,
a total of 1,792,719 of them had their results
released by the board.

A total of 49, 265 results were withheld for
examination malpractice. Out of the number,
15, 145 results are undergoing further
clarification as in the case of identical twins
and siblings.
