The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has begun to release the results of the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)
Premium Times reports that the spokesperson of the board, Fabian Benjamin, confirmed the development.
Benjamin said the board has scrutinized the centres which led to the release of the results, urging the candidates to visit the board’s website and check their results.
According to him, ''The results will be released in batches, candidates are free to check.''
Also, a candidate Segun Abidoye, who wrote the examination on Saturday, March 10 in Ilorin Kwara state, confirmed the development.
Abidoye said: ''The result was released in the midnight and I have obtained my scores.''
The board stating the results would not be released immediately, in order for it to review the activities of the candidates and to minimise the number of cancellations.
The board had said: ''We want to monitor everything that happens through our CCT cameras.
''Last year, we proved a point that there is nothing extraordinary in the immediate release of results but we had to cancel some results when we found out what happened in some centres.
''So, if we have to take two or three days to look at the conduct of the candidates before releasing the result so as to minimise cancellation, then we will do so.''
How to check 2018 UTME results

b. Your phone number
c. Your email address.
However, before taking the steps below, it is important that you already have a profile registered on JAMB’s website.
1. You need a computer (or a tablet device, smartphone) with an active Internet connection. You should go to the official site, which is jamb.org.ng.
2. All new users should register an account (you’ll have to enter a working email, your real name, phone number, and other information along with a passcode), and all existing users have to log in to their personal account on this website. JAMB website supports only 1 profile per person, so candidates who already have an account (registered in the past) are advised to recover their password via the option ‘Forgot your password?’ in case it is forgotten, because you cannot register a second profile per your name.
3. The main page of your profile shows various details. You can click on each service and get important information right on your screen.
