This article is specifically created for all 2020 JAMB candidates who participated in the 2020 JAMB UTME examination, but yet to receive their result through text message or seen it uploaded online.
After going through several Messages, comments on this platform, it’s shocking to see that a large number of candidates who participated in the 2020 JAMB CBT exams are yet to see their result via SMS 24 hours after sending the JAMB shortcode. Here’s how to rightly do this.
How to Check JAMB Result With SMS:
1. Type RESULT and send it to 55019. Make sure you are using the phone number you used in creating your JAMB profile and JAMB Registration to send this. You need to have a minimum of N50 on your Simcard for this to be successful.
However, if after 1 hour – 12 hours you are yet to receive any reply from JAMB, then send JAMB followed by candidate’s surname, first name, and middle name, and then send to the shortcode, 55019
Example: Result Chibuzor Ahmed Tobi and send it to 55019.
Please take note that the service costs N50.
The JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq shared this new method, saying that this new way of checking results was to prevent candidates from paying cyber cafe operators huge amount of money for checking results.
Main Reasons Why Certain Candidates Have Not Yet Received Their Results Via Text Messages.
Wrong Number During Registration.
One of the main reasons why some candidates did not receive their result via Text Message (SMS) is adding the wrong phone number during registration. Missing a single digit from the 11 digits of your number will jeopardize your chance of receiving your result from JAMB.
Solution To This:
There is absolutely no reason why you should panic if you fall into this category. Even if you did not receive your result via SMS, you can use the JAMB result checker portal to check your scores.
This is because, JAMB did not ONLY send you your scores via SMS, but the results of candidates were also uploaded online and you can check your scores for Free using this Guide.
Take note that JAMB has already provided on their portal, a platform where all candidates who wrote the 2020 CBT examination can check and print out their result slip.
All 2020 UTME participants should take note that YOU MUST print out your result slip. This process is a must if you want to process your admission or sit for your school of choice Post UTME screening examination.
However, the printing of jamb result slips has not yet commenced, you can only print out your result through, but not the Original JAMB RESULT SLIP.
