The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) which a lot of people wrongly call JAMB, is arguably one of the most popular exams in the country. Aside from the examinations conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and the National Examinations Council (NECO), there is no other Nigerian examination as popular as the UTME.
It is also quite important to state that there is a clear and big difference between the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). While the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is just the examination people talk about, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the organization responsible for carrying out this examination.
Every year, mostly in the first quarter of the year, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) conducts its annual Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). And within weeks of conducting this examination, the result of the candidates get released. However, checking of result is a problem most students face, and this is the reason why we put up this article. This article would be putting candidates through the process of checking their result.
2019 JAMB Result Statistics
While the purpose of writing this article is to inform students on how to check their result, we feel it would be a good idea discussing the 2019 UTME result statistics.
According to a report the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) released on June 11, 2019, there are well over 2 million students who participated in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). And of all these students, about 1.8 million of them scored over 120. Being a little elaborate, the number of students scoring 120 and above, are 1,787,368.
As for those scoring 130 and above, the organization reported they have 1,768,524 candidates. Furthermore, the board had 1,694,048 students who scored over 140.
According to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), of all the students who took part in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), only 788,817 of them were able to score above 180. And this number is reduced by almost half, when talking about those scoring 200 and above. Being elaborate, only 427,156 of all the candidates who took part in the examination, scored 200 and above.
How to Check JAMB Result 2020
For anyone who is interested in checking their 2020 JAMB result, there are two approaches you can take. The first might require you to make a payment, and this is the step we recommend if you want to print out the result.
The other approach would not require you paying any money, but it is not a recommended approach for anyone interested in printing out their result. In short, you can first check your result using this approach, and if afterwards, you consider it worthwhile of being printed out, you can then use the first approach.
It is however also worthwhile stating that you may not have to manually check the result for yourself, as the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) ordinarily sends the result of each candidate, to their registration phone no. In other words, you can wait for two weeks after your examination, to see if you would receive an SMS. But if you do not, then you can proceed with checking it yourself.
To check your 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result, the following is an approach to it.
First log on to the official website of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB): jamb.org.ng. The homepage contains a number of sections which can lead to another page. Among these sections, you need to find a section contain a button that reads “Create e-Facility Account / Log in”; locate this button and click it. On clicking this button, you would be taken to another web page.
On this new web page, you can do a number of things, with one of them being logging into your account. Locate the form you can use to log into your account, and provide all necessary log in details. Login details you would be asked for, include your registration email and account password. If you have forgotten your email, you can check your JAMB registration form. If you have forgotten your password, you can always recover it.
Once you have logged in, you would be presented a dashboard, from which you can do so many things. Among things you can do on this dashboard are: checking of admission status, and checking of UTME result. Find the section for checking Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result and follow it. During the process, you might be asked to pay some amount of money. To pay this money, you would need a Naira debit card which is enabled for online transactions. Once you are able to make the payment, your result would be presented to you.
You should also note that when you have to print your 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result, this is the approach you are expected to follow.
This second approach, as stated above, is meant for people who would love to check their score, but are not willing to pay at the moment. This approach only shows you your total score, but does not give details.
To use this approach, visit the following web page: http://www.jamb.org.ng/eFacility/CheckUTMEResults. This page contains a form which would asks for your UTME registration number or registration email. If you can provide any of these details, you would be presented with your 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) score.
It is however important to note that it is possible that when you are trying to check your result, it might be yet to be uploaded. Under this kind of circumstances, we recommend that you find something else to do, then try again later. Uploading of results can take weeks after the exam, so you have to be willing to exercise some patience.
