Can I Upload Results to JAMB Portal After Post UTME/DE?

JAMB logo
We need to talk about whether it’s possible to upload O’level results after the Post UTME. We’ve already covered this and related issues in “Deadline For Uploading of O’level Results to JAMB Portal”. But emphasis should be made regards this.

In case you don’t get it yet, this post will answer the question, “Can I be able to upload my O’level results to the JAMB portal after post UTME?” Or Can Direct Entry applicants upload results such as NCE, ND, IJMB, JUPEB, etc after Post DE?

Some candidates never realize they must upload results until after they had done a school post UTME or screening. Some want to be sure if they can still delay things until they return from post UTME halls.

In all, these cases are just the same. Whether you’re willing to wait till you finish your UTME or you’re aware late that you must upload, this post will help.

You Can Upload O’level Results After Post UTME

As a matter of fact, it’s possible.

Candidates are expected to upload their results before they register for or during the registration of their post UTMEs. However, there is no punishment for this if you wait till after the post UTME or taking part in the screening exercise. Hence, you must go and do the uploading after the test.

Candidates With Awaiting Results Have No Other Choice

A majority of candidates who used awaiting results during the UTME registration usually have no other choice than to upload their results after post UTME.

This is because WAEC withheld and NECO results may not come out before the post UTME of many schools. Hence, affected candidates will still be able to upload their results after post UTME and as soon as their results are released.

No Deadline for the Uploading of O’level Results

What can be giving you concerns is if there is a specific date JAMB intends to close the uploading of SSCE results. Officially, there’s no closing date for the upload of results to the JAMB portal.

However, candidates are expected to upload theirs before their proposed schools start to be releasing their admission lists. This is because, admission will be based on your JAMB score, post UTME score (if any) and SSCE required subjects and grades.

Even if a school forwards your name in their lists to JAMB, your admission status will be on HOLD until you return to a nearby CBT centre and upload your O’level results.

Some Candidates Were Not Awaiting Results But the CBT Centres Entered Awaiting For Them

Some candidates have visited me to complain that they went to CBT centres with their WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, or NBAIS results, yet those CBT centres still used awaking results for them.

Now, they want to confirm if it concerns them to upload again. And if yes, is it not too late after the Post UTME.

I’ve covered this in my post, “NO ADMISSION YET, Why O’level Result is the Reason for Delay”.

Most candidates will not be offered admissions this year because some CBT centres were so careless with their jobs. Hence, it’s important if you fall into this category, to visit a CBT centre (not necessarily where you registered UTME). Then, upload your results. This is very important. See how to check if your result has already been uploaded.

It’s never late to upload O’level results after post UTME. Just make sure you do that before your proposed schools start releasing their admission lists. Even though if you delay it, you can still do it later. Yet, you won’t be offered admission through the JAMB CAPS until you do the right thing.
