Note: Do not check your result on the internet as the portal had been shut, following an attempt by some fraudsters to alter results of candidates

According to dailypost, JAMB is already investigating the activities of these criminals and will not fail to take very drastic action against those that are behind this.

The Head, Media and Information of the JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin has reacted to candidates’ complaints that the board was deliberately posting candidates to centres far away from their areas of residence.

He maintained that JAMB would not go beyond the carrying capacity of any centre all in a bid to fulfil the aspirations of candidates seeking to take the examination there.

“Let me simply clarify here that JAMB does not post candidates just anywhere.

“It is the candidates that chose their examination towns and once centres in that examination towns are filled; they are withdrawn from the net and candidates are then sent to other centres closest to such examination towns.

I will update this post as soon as UTME result check portal is open, more results flow in and 2020 University cut-off mark release.  For any question on this use our comment box below.
