Over 1.3 million candidates have so far accessed their 2019 UTME results using the 55019 code, according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board JAMB.
Concise News learned that spokesman for the examination body, Fabian Benjamin, while making this known, rubbished claims that majority of candidates had yet to access their results through the said code.
“I want to refute all these claims as there is no truth in them,” he told NAN.
“First and foremost, by our records, over 1.3 candidates who sat for this examination have accessed their results using the code for checking the results, which remains ‘55019’.
“Again, let me also state in clear terms that the N50 charged in the process of checking these results does not go to JAMB’s purse but to the various service providers.”
The clarification became necessary, according to him, in view of what he described as ‘wicked and malicious rumours’ by some persons that the board was charging a fee for checking of results.
