The Registrar/Chef Executive, of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, on Tuesday said it has released the results of over 200,000 candidates who sat for the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination, which began on Saturday.

Ojerinde, who made this know on Tuesday in Abuja, stated that candidates, who had sat for the examination should visit the website of JAMB to check their results.

He said this during an interview with journalists after leading the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, on a visit to some centres to monitor the UTME.

Ojerinde added, “Over 200,000 results have so far been released. We have always advised candidates to indicate the correct telephone number through which they could receive SMS and get their results. But some candidates continue to make the mistake of giving us the telephone number of the business centres where they registered for the examination.”

A total of 1,589,175 candidates applied for the 2016 UTME.


Candidates can check their result by following the apparatus as enumerated below;

To check your result simply click

Your result should be made available to you almost immediately. Please note that the database is continually being updated so even if you have taken your exam for over 24hrs and it still says “No Result Yet”, wait for another 24 hrs.
