The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) conducts the most popular university, polytechnic and COE entrance examination in Nigeria.

If you’re among the students who sat for the 2020 exam, then you can check for your result online.

Alternatively, you can check your result by sending an SMS to a code we’ll be sharing with you soon. After this, you’ll get a notification (in the form of an SMS) containing your score.

As for this year, the use of SMS was the only option available for nearly one week. According to JAMB, the reason for the delay was due to the fact that they were still working on uploading all the scores to their servers.

How to Check JAMB 2020 Result Using Code:

  • Using the phone number you registered with JAMB, send the message “RESULT” to 55019.
  • You will receive a message confirming the deduction of 50 naira from your credit.
  • Wait for a few hours (sometimes minutes), after which JAMB will send your result to that phone number in the form of an SMS.

Note: You must have a minimum of 50 naira in your account balance to be able to see your result statement.

A lot of candidates have complained that they failed to receive any message after following the above steps. If that’s the case for you, then you have to try again some other time or day. The reason is, the number of queries for result is really high, which may as a consequence lead to network congestion.

How to Check JAMB 2020 Result Online

Step 1. Visit the official result checking portal here

Step 2. Type in either your registration number or the email address you used during registration and click on Check my result.

Step 3. Wait for the page to load, after which your JAMB 2020 result will display on your screen.

You can complete the above steps using a mobile phone and any compatible mobile browser. However, it is advisable that you use a computer so that you’ll be able to print or save the page for printing.

If you have no experience with all this and you’re not too good at using the internet, all you have to do is visit any cyber cafe near you.

Alternatively, ask a friend or any of your relatives who’s more conversant with the use of the internet.

What you should know

According to a statement from JAMB registrar: “the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board released the results of 1,792,719 candidates who sat for the 2020 UTME, while the results of 34,120 candidates were withheld due to various infractions.

If you sent the message “RESULT” to 55019 and didn’t receive any feedback, it is not necessarily an indication that your result was withheld. As we’ve earlier indicated, the network may be congested at that moment; try again some other time.

After checking your result, and you have performed up to the cut off mark, the next thing to do is to wait till admission is processed on CAPS.
