JAMB, which is now called UTME (The United Tertiary Matriculation Examination) is the standardized examination required to gain admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
For many years, it was called JAMB (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board) examinations. Although the governing body retains the name, JAMB, the examination has been renamed to UTME in order to make it more inclusive for other institutions apart from universities.
Alongside WAEC and NECO, UTME is the examination that would determine whether or not one would proceed into the university.
As a matter of fact, the UTME is the first point of contact because it determines at all whether the institution would offer admission while WAEC and NECO are usually used to determine the course of study.
So every secondary school leaver in Nigeria is aware of the weight UTME carries on their educational progress. Unlike WAEC and NECO, the examination is taken once a year and in recent times, because it is now computer-based, results are released faster than when the examination was paper-based. Usually, within two weeks, results are released online.
So, considering everything in the world is constantly improved upon, the board has also made some improvements this year to make checking results easier.
Thus, the usual practice in recent years is to buy a scratch card, log on to the website and enter the required details to get the results.
There is also the option of checking your phone. However, because you will need to have a printed copy that will be required by institutions to sit for Post-UTME, you will need to go online to check and print the result.
In order to check and print your result online, what you need is:
- JAMB website link which is www.jamb.org.ng/
- You will also need your PIN number
- Then of course, your SERIAL NUMBER AND REGISTRATION NUMBER.
Both of these numbers would have been given to you when you registered for JAMB, it will be on your JAMB slip and you must have entered it into the computer to take the examination.
The numbers are personal to you and what differentiates you from others, so you need to safeguard it through the JAMB process.
