Discover the main reason Why Jamb Result Can only be used for one year. The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) is a Nigerian entrance examination board for tertiary-level institutions. The board conducts an entrance Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination for prospective undergraduates into Nigerian universities. The board is also charged with the responsibility to administer similar examinations for applicants to Nigerian public and private monotechnics, polytechnics, and colleges of educations. All of these candidates must have obtained the West Africa School Certificate, now West African Examinations Council, WAEC, or its equivalent, National Examination Council (Nigeria), NECO.
Why Jamb Result Can only be used for one year
The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Ishaq Oloyede has explained that results for the board’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) cannot last beyond one year because it is a ranking and not an achievement test.
This means that JAMB results only last for ONE YEAR.
