JAMB said this is different from what was obtained in 2023, hence, the results, "at the moment, are not and cannot be found on the board's website".

Candidates are urged to follow the method specified above to obtain their results.

It is understood that UTME candidates do not need to visit any cybercafe or patronise any third-party entity to check their results.

JAMB wrote:

"Please, be aware that the only way to check the 2024 UTME result is by sending UTMERESULT to 55019 or 66019 using the same phone number used to generate profile code, no result will be posted online."
