JAMB, or the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, is the Nigerian entrance examination body for tertiary institutions. It conducts the UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) and Direct Entry admission processes for Nigerian universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education. The results of the UTME are crucial to students seeking admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. In this article, we will explore the question, “Can I check my JAMB result with only my registration number?”.
Understanding JAMB Registration
JAMB registration is the first step for candidates who want to take the UTME. Candidates must register with JAMB before they can sit for the UTME. Registration for the UTME can be done at designated banks or online. After registration, candidates will receive a JAMB registration number, which is a unique identification number that is used to track the candidate’s progress throughout the admission process.
The UTME is a computer-based examination that consists of four subjects – English Language, Mathematics, and two other subjects chosen by the candidate based on their chosen course of study. The examination is held annually, usually between March and April. The results of the UTME are usually released within a few days after the examination has been concluded.
Can I Check My JAMB Result With Only My Registration Number?
The answer to this question is both “yes” and “no”. In the past, candidates could only check their JAMB results by purchasing scratch cards, which contained a unique pin number that could be used to access the candidate’s results on the JAMB website. However, JAMB has now moved away from scratch cards and introduced a new system that allows candidates to check their results with only their JAMB registration number.
To check your JAMB result with your registration number, you must follow these steps:
Step 1: Visit the JAMB website
The first step is to visit the JAMB website at www.jamb.org.ng. Once you are on the website, look for the “Check UTME Results” button and click on it.
Step 2: Enter your JAMB registration number
The next step is to enter your JAMB registration number. Your registration number is a 10-digit number that was assigned to you when you registered for the UTME.
Step 3: Click on “Check Result”
After entering your registration number, click on the “Check Result” button. The JAMB portal will then display your result.
Step 4: Print your result
If you want to print your result, you can do so by clicking on the “Print Result” button. You can then save a copy of your result on your computer or print it out.
However, it is important to note that while you can check your JAMB result with only your registration number, there are some situations where this may not be possible. For example, if there are issues with your registration, such as incomplete or incorrect information, you may not be able to check your result using your registration number alone. In such cases, you will need to contact JAMB support to resolve the issue.
In conclusion, candidates can now check their JAMB results with only their registration number. This is a more convenient and efficient system compared to the old method of using scratch cards. However, it is important to note that there may be situations where candidates may not be able to access their results using only their registration number. In such cases, candidates should contact JAMB support to resolve the issue.
