Have you written your JAMB UTME and you are wondering how many days does Jamb result come out after the exam? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Most candidates waiting to write the UTME examination will want to know before time how long it will take for results to be released.

Well, this article may not be able to answer all your questions outright but will be sharing past years’ experiences with you so you can be able to know or have the knowledge of how long you can wait for results to be released.

JAMB Results Will Not Be Ready Immediately After Submission

Teachers and brothers must have made you feel unease by telling you that you will be seeing your results immediately after submitting your test.


In the previous years, most people say that since it’s a computer-based test candidates will be seeing their results displayed on the screen of the computers after submitting their test.

But that is not true.

It is normal for CBT results to be made known on the screen immediately after submitting your test and before living the exam hall but JAMB does not permit that.

So, you shouldn’t be expecting to see your result this time. Although other CBT and exam bodies permit you to see your result after submitting your test, JAMB doesn’t.


For reason best known to JAMB boards.

How Many Days Does Jamb Result Come Out?

Within 1 Week (7 Days) After Exam

JAMB result is usually released within 1 week after the examination although JAMB doesn’t announce the date before publishing the results. Presently, they only publish results and make announcements when they are convinced that everything has been properly done.

Meanwhile, in previous years they announce the date to release the results but due to technical issues, they are not able to keep up with announcing date and sticking to the exact date.

That is why the board has been careful in announcing the date till they are sure there won’t be technical interruptions.

JAMB Used to Release Results Within 24 hours

JAMB would have continued releasing results within 24 hours if not for the past technical issues and distractions being caused for awaiting UTME candidates.

In 2015 and 2017 JAMB released results within 24 hours. The development was being condemned cause candidates who haven’t written theirs were distracted when some candidates were already seeing their results.

Although, JAMB is still trying to release results within 24 hours of writing your examination. Nevertheless, you should expect your result within 24 hours or within a week or two as the case may be.

All Results Are Released Within 30 Days After Exam

We may not draw our conclusion as 24 hours, a week, or two is the normal waiting period for jamb to start releasing results.

This time range is only possible if everything works out fine with the exam board.

If there are perhaps technical issues and a review of activities just like in 2018, then candidates may have to wait up to a month before the results will be announced.

The two weeks may not be in accordance with what JAMB did in 2019 by allowing all schedules to be properly completed and all candidates to finish writing their exams before their results were released. Although technical issues may delay the result of some candidates and make them wait a little more.
