Have you read that the UTME score sent to you through SMS may be different from the one you finally checked online? Have you heard some people sharing updates about such an incident?

Anyway, if your answer is yes, you’re not the only one here.

A few candidates had visited my office to recheck their results on the JAMB portal as soon as the body allowed that. They’re curious to know if the information circulating the social media that the result earlier checked when they sent RESULT to 55019 was an error. In fact, a lady said “I read that JAMB server was hacked, hence the result through the SMS was fake”

What is the truth?

Until last year (2019), JAMB hasn’t used the method of getting results sent to you using the shortcode 55019. They did send results, in recent years through SMS to people but not through a dedicated method.

In fact, it’s then, almost within the first 24 hours you submitted your answers that you would receive the SMS.

Now that things have changed, we have to change too.

Is It True that the Result Changed?

In order to know if what these students claimed was real, I checked several results.

You know my findings?

The SMS result was not different from what we saw online.

In fact, I went online to drop a note on one of my most-read posts, that students should drop comments if they experienced such. And till the time of this post, nothing of such was reported.

Sometimes, it can be hard to trust JAMB. We’d had a series of experiences in the past. JAMB once or twice added marks to some candidates’ results. They eventually denied that. But candidates claimed it happened. I saw a few too.

But I want to believe that was in the past. The system is getting matured. No doubt about that.

What Should You Do Now?

Be focused on the result you have for now and try to print the result online immediately. I detailed 4 methods to check and print your JAMB result here.

Keep your result printout for the record and use it when the time comes.

Talking of being focused, you will find this post as the next thing to commit to after the result release. From that, you will see the next three steps to gain admission.

    1. The one printed is final. You can't print SMS. She you consider change of institution to a school that can consider the 154.
