“They must first log in their profile and then, click on ‘check UTME Examination Results’.”

The spokesman dismissed rumours that the result checker code was not functional.

JAMB had on Saturday, May 11, announced the release of 1,792,719 results, with the examination body’s Registrar Professor Is-haq Oloyede saying that due to various infractions the board withheld the results of 34,120 candidates.

The Registrar also said that 15,145 of the aforementioned results were withheld for further clarification.

More than 1.8 million candidates sat the 2019 UTME from April 11 to April 18.
