If you are concerned about getting admission into higher education, then your JAMB result is a vital aspect of the process. Fortunately for you, JAMB has simplified the result-checking process, as there are various methods you can use.

Understanding the 2024 JAMB Results

Your JAMB results are a way to know if your performance merits admission into any institution in Nigeria. It has a total score of 400. The examination assesses your competence and ability to answer questions quickly.

Every year, JAMB pegs the cut-off mark based on the overall performance of candidates. Last year, the cut-off mark was set at 160 for university, which means no university can admit a student who scored below that number.

For colleges of education and innovative institutions, the cut-off mark was pegged at 120 and 100 marks respectively.

Checking Your JAMB Result

Here are ways you can check your JAMB results. They include:

JAMB portal

One of the most popular ways to check your JAMB results is through the JAMB website. You can also get an official printout of your results from this platform.

Access your results: select the “Check UTME Results” option after inputting the necessary information. Once your JAMB result is out, it should show you the scores for the subjects you have taken.

Please note

  • Always make sure your online connection is stable before trying to access the eFacility portal. A slow internet connection will badly affect the entire process of getting your result.

JAMB also provides an easy alternative for checking your JAMB results. Before you try this method, be sure to use the phone number that you provided during the JAMB 2024 registration process.

This option was introduced in 2021 to assist candidates, guardians or parents who find it difficult to access their results via the Internet.

Access your SMS app: From your smartphone, open your SMS app.

Send the text: You can send the text to any of the following numbers:

55019 or 66019

These are the approved SMS numbers from JAMB.

Check Your Results: After sending the message successfully, you will receive an SMS from JAMB with your UTME scores if your result is released.

Please note:

This method is not free. It costs ₦50, which will be subtracted from your network balance before the result is released. So, be sure that your balance is adequate before trying to access your JAMB results through this method.


What to Do After Receiving Your JAMB Result


Scored Above Cut-Off Mark

  • Congratulations for scoring above the cutoff mark. All your effort has paid off. The next step is to wait for your preferred university to start sales of Post-UTME forms. It is important to check the institution’s website and visit our school news portal for regular updates.
  • You may also have to prepare for post-UTME. It is an examination taken for the purpose of screening admission seekers. Not all universities offer post-UTME. For instance, the University of Uyo does not give any form of post-UMTE to its aspirants.
  • Also, get acquainted with CAPS (Central Admission Processing System). It is a platform that exists to streamline admissions for both candidates and tertiary institutions. Managed by JAMB, all you have to do is to “accept” or “reject” when admission is offered.

Scored Below Cut-Off Mark

If you score below the cut-off mark, all hope is not lost. You tried your best. It doesn’t mean you are not mentally capable of tertiary education. You must have realised where you need to put in more effort by now.
