JAMB Result 2023

  • The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) results for 2024 are now accessible online and offline.
  • Candidates who took the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in 2024 and previous years can now check their results. The UTME is an annual standardized computer-based test required for admission into Nigerian higher education institutions such as universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) oversees the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), an annual standardized computer-based test required for entry into universities, polytechnics, colleges, and other post-secondary institutions in Nigeria.

Candidates now have the option to check their Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results for 2024 and previous years online or via SMS.


Ways to Check JAMB Result

You can check your JAMB result using one of two methods: either by visiting the JAMB portal to view your result online or by sending a text message containing specific shortcodes to JAMB and receiving your result via SMS.

To check your UTME result online, you’ll need an internet-connected device. On the other hand, candidates without internet access or in areas with poor network coverage might prefer the SMS method, although be aware that network operators would charge a fee for this service.

Steps to Check JAMB Result Online

All the candidates who participated in the 2024 UTME and years before can now print their original results slip affixed with their passport photograph. You will need to pay N1,500 to access your JAMB result slip.

  3. Once logged in, locate and click on the “Check UTME Results” tab.
  4. Enter your JAMB registration number and click on “Check My Result.”
  5. Your JAMB result will be displayed on the screen. You can print it out for future reference.

Note: If your result is not yet available, you may need to wait for a few days or weeks for it to be released. JAMB usually releases results in batches, so keep checking the portal until your result is available.

How to Check 2024 JAMB Result Offline (via SMS)

All candidates can now send UTMERESULT (no spaces) via SMS to 55019 or 66019 using the same phone number they used to register (you must have a credit balance of at least N50 on your line). The outcome will be sent to you as an SMS shortly after.
The following are the responses to be expected:

  • If a candidate uses a phone number that was not used during the registration process, he or she will receive the following notice in response: “This phone number was not used for registration.
  • A candidate with a result will receive the following message: “Dear Mr/Miss X, your result is as follows... (and further information will be provided).
  • If a result is withheld, the candidate will receive a “Result Withheld” text.
  • Let’s say a candidate falls under the umbrella of those who are given the benefit of the doubt. The person will then receive the notification, “Result withheld pending the upload of clarifications/document required from you,
  • If a candidate were absent, the reply would be “CANDIDATE ABSENT” A candidate that was ABSENT WITH REGISTRATION NUMBER also CANCELLED will be so informed.
  • A candidate who gains unauthorised entrance to the examination venue will receive the message “Invalid Entrance into the Exam Hall.”

Advice to JAMB Candidates on UTME Result

It’s important to note that there are fraudsters who claim to be able to upgrade JAMB results. We strongly advise JAMB candidates not to fall for such scams, as it’s impossible to alter results once they’ve been checked online or via SMS.
