JAMB Board is responsible for administering Nigeria’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The UTME is a mandatory examination for all students seeking admission into Nigerian universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.
After the examination, JAMB releases the results, and students can check their scores using the JAMB result checker. This article will discuss how to check your JAMB result.
How to Check JAMB Results With Registration Number
The JAMB result checker is an online portal that allows students to access their UTME results. You must have your JAMB registration number and a valid email address to check your result. Here are the steps to follow:
- Visit the JAMB result checker website (www.jamb.org.ng)
- Click on the “Check UTME Examination Results” link
- Input your JAMB registration number or the email address used during registration
- Click on the “Check Result” button
- Your JAMB score will be displayed, and you can download or print it from the www.jamb.org.ng result checker portal.
It is important to note that the JAMB result checker will only show your score and not your overall performance.
To assess your overall performance, you must visit the JAMB office or the institution where you sat for the examination.
How to Check Your JAMB Result Offline (via SMS)
JAMB has introduced a new way for students to check their UTME results in 2024/2025. The new method is via SMS on a student’s phone. Here are the steps to follow:
- Compose an SMS in the format “RESULT (space) JAMB Registration Number.”
- Send the SMS to 55019 or 66019 using the number or SIM card used during JAMB registration.
- A fee of Fifty Naira (50) will be charged for this service.
- You will receive a response shortly that contains your JAMB result score and your scores in each subject you sat for.
- Note that “RESULT” should be in uppercase letters.
This new method is an easy and convenient way to check your JAMB result, especially for people who do not have access to the internet or prefer to check their results offline.
Note that this method is not free but it is cheap.
Checking your JAMB result via SMS does not restrict you from using other methods such as checking it online using the JAMB result checker, visiting the JAMB office, or the institution where you sat for the examination.
How Long Will It Take for JAMB Result to Come Out
One of the most frequently asked questions by students who have taken the UTME is, “How long will it take for JAMB results to come out?”
The time it takes for JAMB results to be released depends on several factors.
This includes the number of candidates who took the examination, the number of centers where the study was held, and the number of papers written.
Generally, JAMB results are usually released within two to four days after the examination. However, in some instances, it may take longer for the results to be released.
For example, if there are any technical issues or problems with the examination papers, it may take more time for the results to be released.
It’s important to note that JAMB will not release the results until they have been thoroughly reviewed and verified. This process is essential to ensure the integrity and accuracy of the results.
For example, candidates that wrote on Saturday should expect their results to be ready latest on Monday.
For candidates that wrote on Monday, their results will be out and ready by Wednesday, while candidates that took the jamb exams scheduled on Tuesday will get their results uploaded by Thursday.
Checking your JAMB result is a simple process. Using the steps outlined in this article, you can easily access your score using the JAMB result checker website or by sending an SMS.
If you have difficulties or issues checking your JAMB result 2024, you should contact JAMB Support or visit any Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) office and complain to them. We wish you continued success.
