The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the release of results for candidates who participated in the supplementary Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted on Friday, June 21st, and Saturday, June 22nd, 2024.

JAMB spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made this announcement on Friday in a statement in Abuja.

He explained that the supplementary examination was held for 28,835 candidates who were unable to undergo biometric verification during the main 2024 UTME and therefore could not take the examination.

Benjamin also mentioned that another group of candidates included those suspected of involvement in examination malpractices during the main UTME but were given a second chance to sit the examination.

According to him, the exercise, which was successful nationwide, featured heightened security measures implemented by the Board to prevent any examination infractions.

“As a result, some individuals who attempted to impersonate genuine candidates were apprehended and handed over to law enforcement agencies for further investigation and prosecution.

“The Board will continue to ensure that no candidate benefits from any acts of infractions through the deployment of state-of-the-art technology before, during, and after its examinations.

“Candidates are therefore urged, in their interest, to refrain from engaging in any form of irregularities during their examinations.

“They are also advised to avoid soliciting score upgrades from fraudsters or altering their result sheets to generate fake results with higher scores.

“To check their supplementary UTME results, candidates should send UTMERESULT to either 55019 or 66019 using the same phone number they used to generate their profile codes at the start of registration,” JAMB stated.
