This same validity period makes JAMB, WAEC and other O’ level result different (See my post on the Difference Between WAEC, NECO & NABTEB), While O’level result can last a lifetime, the same is not true for your JAMB result.

How Many Years JAMB Result Last

shy to ask questions

One (1) Year, JAMB Result unlike WAEC, NECO and NABTEB can only last for One Year.

This means the validity for JAMB is just for the year it was written, which means, you cannot use your 2022 JAMB result to gain admission in 2023, or 2021 JAMB result to gain admission in 2022, just like that.

What about the Proposed Bill by Senate to extend the number of years we can Use JAMB Result??

About that, the bill has not yet been passed and as such has no effect as of now.

The previous act states that all JAMB results is valid for just one year, this act requires students to write JAMB each time they want to apply for admission for any School of their choice (University, polytechnics or Colleges of Education).

Since the bill has not been passed, it does not hold water.

The next question that comes to mind is, WHY? ?

Why should WAEC result last for over 10 years and JAMB result just the year it is written…

Why JAMB Results Cannot Be Used More than One Year

Recently, the registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Professor Ishaq Oloyede gave reasons why JAMB result is not valid for more than one Year.

He said, JAMB result cannot be used beyond the year it was written because it is a ranking and not an achievement test.

So, since JAMB helps University to rank student for admission, students cannot use last year ranking (last year JAMB result) for this year JAMB.

I hope with this, you can now answer the question “How Many Years JAMB Result Last?”. I will now answer some frequently asked questions on JAMB Validity Period

Frequently Asked Questions

NO, you cannot use your last year JAMB result to gain admission into any University, Polytechnics or colleges of Education in Nigeria.

JAMB Validity period is One (1) year, but if the proposed bill is passed by the senate then your JAMB result will be valid for three (3) years

Is there Any Chance Senate Will Pass The Bill To Make JAMB Result Valid For three Years?

Well, the chances are thin, this is because, the bill has been proposed since 2016 and up until now nothing has been said or done about it

Can I use my JAMB Result Next Year?

NO you cannot, if you hope to use JAMB next year, you will have to register and sit for another one.

JAMB 2023 Result will expire after the admission processing for 2023/2024 is completed, you cannot use 2023 JAMB result for another year, like 2023 or 2024.
