Jamb result validity has been an issue since 2015 and till date the whole issue is still causing confusion both for parents and candidates taking the exams.

It was premium times that first broke up the news that jamb results will now be valid for at least 3 years

What truly happened was that a bill was introduced to amend the act that established the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board JAMB.

The previous act states that all jamb results should be valid for just one year. This act makes candidates to keep writing jamb exams year in year out.

Considering the hardship in the country and the financial burden most parents are having in purchasing jamb forms, the Senate had to wade in and about 2/3rd majority of the house supported the amendment of the bill.

The main purpose of the new bill

  • Extend the validity period to 3 years from the previous 1 year.
    Stop jamb from transferring candidates from their preferred institution to institution they didn’t choose themselves.
  • Reduces unnecessary financial burden faced by parent.
  • Restructure JAMB so that it will be responsive to it core mandate

I must commend this is a nice development by the nigeria senate however the bad eggs in government did not let this great development to materialise based on the fact that it will affect their pockets.

How many years can your JAMB result last

It can last up for a year only. Don’t be deceived by those who said it can last more than a year. No there is nothing like that. Jamb result is only valid for a year. If you were not able to gain admission with that Jamb result for that particular year, you have no choice than to rewrite it. Same process goes to when you failed the examination.

Can I use my JAMB result for 3 years

No the plan by the nigeria senate to make Jamb result valid for three years did not materialise. So therefore Jamb result is only valid for one year.

Can i use this Year Jamb result for Next year

No you can’t. Jamb result is only valid for one year after this it is void.
