The plan to increase the validity of JAMB result to 3 years was proposed by the Senate on October, 13 2016. However, the senate clearly stated that the house will make more review and consultation on the plan.
“The Nigerian Senate just passed the amendment to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s Act SB. 245 into law. In the amendment passed, the Senate strengthened the Board to allow the results of students in the annual examination be valid beyond that year.
Chairman of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Education and TETFund, Senator Jibrin Barau while presenting the report of his committee on the #JAMBBill explained that the amendments will further strengthen the Admissions Board in its responsibilities.
Senate President Bukola Saraki, in appreciating his distinguished colleagues for their work towards the passage of the bill commented that the new amendments will indeed bring financial relief to students as well as parents and reduce bottlenecks and corruption in the admission process.”
IS JAMB RESULT VALID FOR THREE(3) YEARS?
The decision of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board(JAMB) on the issue of JAMB result validity was disclosed by the Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, during an interview with newsmen.
Dr Benjamin emphasized that the UTME results are valid for only one year and not three years as widely rumored.
He however said that if changes are made on the validity of UTME results, the board will communicate that to the public.
So, if you make to gain admission this year, you have to register for JAMB again.
This would have been a great improvement to the candidates. A lot of candidate passed JAMB but failed Post-UTME for one reason or the other.
If the results are valid for three(3) years, they don’t need to register for UTME again. They just have to prepare for Post-UTME with the same JAMB result. This will save money, time, stress.
By now, you should know that JAMB result is not valid for three(3) years but only a year.
