2020 JAMB UTME notification of the result


This is to inform candidates who had written their UTMEs that the results are now released officially. Candidates can strat checking directly on the JAMB portal.

Let me guide you on how to check your JAMB UTME results. JAMB result is equally termed notification of result. This, you’re able to print as soon as JAMB releases the score of your CBT exams. The result will contain:

  • Name of the candidates
  • JAMB registration number
  • Candidate’s Date of Birth
  • State of Origin
  • Exams Number
  • The name of the centre where you sat for the exams
  • List of the subjects written and score in each

JAMB notification of results will not detail or show your:

  • Passport photo
  • Schools and courses of choice

        4. Print Original JAMB Results Online

        There’s a big difference between JAMB result (the one discussed above) and the one called ORIGINAL JAMB RESULT.

        Original JAMB result will display more information than notification of result. It will further show:

        • Passport photo
        • Schools and courses of choice.

        While candidates usually print the JAMB result for about N200 in the local cafes, printing the Original result will cost around N1,700. This price charge is because the original result involves paying to JAMB N1,000 (excluding online/Remita charges). And note that it has to be printed in colour which will increase a café’s service charge. See How To Make Remita Payment at Bank and Online: Quick Guide.

        Printing the original JAMB result doesn’t have to be immediate. You will mostly need it during your post UTME registration and the school’s admission exercise begins or after being offered admission.

        Why You Need To Immediately Print JAMB Result

        We have a series of reports in the past, regards JAMB changes in the marks of some students after they’d already checked their results. Candidates, who had once checked the results on phones but never printed, later complained of reduction/increase in their scores after rechecking when they were ready to print out.

        Most of these cases were confirmed true even though JAMB denied it.

        This is why you must check your result as soon as possible. Then, print it and keep your printout for the record and admission purpose.
