back in 2019, barely 5 days after the exam jamb announced through it official website

that candidates can proceed to check their results via SMS or using jamb Result Checker Online.

After going through the hurdles of registration, lots of effort that went into preparation

and finally writing the exam

It was no surprise to see how candidates swung into checking

their respective jamb results using convenient checking medium upon release of the Results.

1. Do I need a Scratch Card To Check My Jamb 2020 Result? 

Unlike other exam bodies the practice of checking result with the use of a scratch card has been discontinued by the board.

Meaning you don’t need a scratch card to check your jamb Result.

All you need to check your jamb 2020 result is your jamb Registration Number

2. I Tried To Check My Jamb Result And It Says “No Result Yet”

If you get this message while trying to check your jamb result 2020, there is no reason to fret.

Almost every year, there are reports of candidates getting such messages . It should bring you solace to know that in most cases,

most of the candidate eventually see their jamb result, usually within a week or two.

One of the major reasons why a candidates may get this message may be because they tried to access the result when it’s not out.

Jamb results are released in batches, so if someone you took the exam together has seen his/hers, you need not be afraid as your own might be under process.

Another reason according to jamb may be their result may be under check for examination malpractice if you are not found

wanting for examination malpractice,  your result will definitely be released in no distant time.

3. Jamb Says “Result Withheld:

In 2019, some 34,120 results were withheld on these three grounds

i.  those whose upload of evidence necessitated further investigation.

ii. Those who were found culpable of examination malpractice, thus necessitating the cancellation of their result by jamb.  

iii. Those who did not his heed the advice of jamb to upload evidence of their identity, or cases of impersonation.

Those whose evidence of involvement in examination malpractice has been firmly established have zero chances of getting their jamb results someday.

However those whose involvement in examination malpractice warrants further investigation, (eg failure to upload evidence of identity) these ones will be invited to designated cbt centers across the country for further clarification of evidence against them.

Upon proper evaluation by jamb, results of candidates that are deemed innocent by the board will be released

of the 34,120 candidates, whose result were withheld in 2019, 15,490 was later released by jamb
