The JAMB registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede has revealed the reason there may be delay in releasing some JAMB results. He made this known while briefing newsmen in Lagos.
He said that normally the results ought to be available immediately after the exam since it is CBT. However, for some reasons, JAMB cannot released the results immediately.
According to him, one of the reasons is to go through the CCTV Cameras to see if there are cases of malpractice.
So candidates who get the response “You do not have result yet” need to check back as their results may be under check for exam malpractice. If you are not found guilty of involving in any form of exam malpractice, then your result will surely be released. You only need to exercise patience.
The fact that the response you got says, “You do not have a result Yet”, simply means that your result is not available (not uploaded) at the moment but will likely be available later provided you do not have any issue. So be calm.
Now some candidates also complained that when they tried checking their results, the response they got was, “you did not register for this exam.” For such candidates, if you are sure you thumb printed before the exam and captured all your fingers correctly during your UTME registration and registered with an accredited JAMB CBT centre, then it could be just a system error which will be corrected. But if you did not do any of these, it could be the reason you got that response.
It is also possible you are using a wrong email address or JAMB Registration number and that’s the reason you got that response.
For those candidates complaining that they only see half result or incomplete result when they check, the reason could be because you are using Opera mini browser to check it. Try using a computer system to view it. if you must use a phone or a tablet, make use of another browser like chrome or UC browser.
Prof. Oloyede also stated that some candidates have been found guilty of impersonation. This means that such candidates will not get their results.
He also stated that another reason JAMB does not release the result immediately is to ensure that those who did not pass do not cause trouble at the various CBT centres.
The Board disclosed that it noticed a tremendous reduction in the incidence of impersonation and other forms of infractions. However, the Board would review all the CCTV footages and other installed technical gadgets for possible examination misconduct. As part of its tradition, the Board would not hesitate to withdraw the results of candidates found to have perpetrated any form of examination malpractice.
