Many JAMB candidates have been asking, “can I apply for JAMB UTME with awaiting result?” This is because of the rumours making rounds that JAMB has scrapped UTME registration using awaiting result. The answer to that question is a resounding YES! You can register for UTME using awaiting result.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has dispelled the rumours by some of the prominent online news agencies implying that JAMB candidates with awaiting results will not be allowed to register for UTME.
JAMB has disclosed via its official twitter handle that the board was misquoted by these news agencies.
According to the official statement released by JAMB via its official twitter handle, candidates with awaiting results are free to register for UTME. However, they should ensure that there result is ready before the Admission screening exercise of the school they applied to study begins.
During JAMB registration candidates with results will be allowed to upload their results while candidates with awaiting result will just leave the space empty. This will not in any way disqualify candidates with awaiting results. But they should make sure the result is available before admission into their respective institutions of choice.
The board went further to state categorical that it will give equal chance to all candidates during the UTME registration both those with results and those with awaiting results as the board will not deny anyone the right to quality education.
So if you are a JAMB prospective Candidate hoping to register for UTME using awaiting result, Please disregard any information saying that JAMB has scraped awaiting results registration. Go ahead with your registration when the registration finally commences.
