The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board says over 1.3 million candidates have so far accessed their results using the result checker (code), 55019.
The board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in an interview on Wednesday in Lagos.
Benjamin was speaking against the backdrop of claims in some quarters that majority of candidates who participated in the board’s 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination had yet to access their results through the said code.
He also described as untrue, claims by some mischief makers that the N50 charges incurred through the code was going to the board’s purse.
“I want to refute all these claims as there is no truth in them.
“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,” Benjamin said.
According to the spokesman, the clarification became necessary in view of what he described as ‘wicked and malicious rumours’ by some persons that the board is charging a fee for checking of results.
