The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has explained the delay in the result of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)
The board assured candidates that the results would be available from Monday April 29.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the board’s Head of Media and Publicity, in an interview with newsmen on Saturday said the results were delayed owing to the screening of results to checkmate malpractice.
“We are still screening but hopefully, anytime next week, the results will be ready.

He said, “Normally, results are expected to be out within 24 to 48 hours as obtained in previous examinations held in 2017 and 2018.
“However, the board does not want this to be business as usual.
“Hence the programmed delay, which is part of its deliberate effort to properly scrutinize, identify and address all forms of examination malpractice.
“The board will continue to act decisively with regards to any irregularity discovered even after results are released.
“However, the board has made it a point of duty to screen all activities at all centres via CCTV recordings, to ensure that it does not release results of compromised examinations.”
He advised candidates to send RESULT, via SMS to 55019 to check their result.
