The JAMB exam is by the corner, and you are yet to upload your results on the JAMB portal. For you, this could become a problem in the long run.
So many students have lost the chance to secure admission to their university of choice because they were unable to upload their results, or they uploaded their results but failed to check if they were really uploaded.
Well, you don’t have to miss the chance of securing admission into your school of choice because you could not upload your result on JAMB’s portal.
And this article will ensure that for you.
Results you can upload on the JAMB Portal?
So many students get confused over which O’level result holds weight when it comes to admission.
And this makes them wonder what criteria made them not gain admission. Well, for clarity’s sake, no result holds greater weight than the other.
The types of O’level results uploaded on JAMB’s portal are:
1. West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE)
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is an examination board that was set up by law to decide what exams are needed in English-speaking West African countries and award certificates that are similar to those from other examining bodies around the world.
This examination council is responsible for the conduction of WASSCE. Furthermore, with the number of exams and certificates they’ve organized and given out, the council has helped to improve education in the Anglophonic countries of West Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and The Gambia).
Besides, they also set up an endowment fund, which they used to help people in West Africa who couldn’t afford to go to school. They gave lectures and gave aid to people who couldn’t afford to go to school.
Since it was started, it has stayed one of the biggest and most well-known exams in West Africa. Countries that offer WASSCE are Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and The Gambia.
2. General Certificate Examinations (GCE)
This exam is taken by private candidates, hence it’s named WASSCE for Private Candidates. It’s usually taken in January or February, and in November or December.
It is a private exam, so you don’t need to wear a uniform. But just like the WASSCE for school students, you would need to carry out biometric registration.
This exam is usually taken by high school graduates who want to improve their grades. And the results are usually ready by March or December, usually, 45 days after the last paper has been written.
3. National Examination Council
In Nigeria, the National Examination Council, also known as NECO, is a group that runs examinations.
In April 1999, Abdulsalami Abubakar, the former head of state, created NECO. It was the first government agency in Nigeria to offer reduced registration fees for students who wanted to study.
In June/July, and November/December, they run the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination and General Certificate in Education.
From the above, you can see clearly that all the exams are duly recognized in Nigeria, and no one outweighs the other.
The only prerequisite for you when you want to upload results is that you must have at least 5 credits, and they must include mathematics and English.
How to log in to the JAMB portal
Before we look into uploading your results on the JAMB portal, we would first take a look at how you can log in to your JAMB portal.
- First of all, you should visit Jamb.gov.ng/efacility.
- Then go to the UTME profile page.
- Enter your JAMB email address, password, and registration number.
- Finally, click on the login button.
And there you have it. You have successfully created an account on JAMB’s portal. Ensure not to forget the email address and password.
But if you do forget it, you can retrieve it with a recovery email.
Why you should access your Jamb profile
Yearly, prospective applicants treat their JAMB portal registration with a carefree attitude. They input emails and passwords they may not remember, in the end, they may find it difficult re-collecting the email and password, or even retrieve it.
So for your good, listed below are some reasons why you should take your JAMB profile logins seriously.
- To access your dashboard on the JAMB portal, you need to have your login. If you don’t, it would mark the beginning of your failure in JAMB.
- When admission is been offered to students, you would need to check it on your JAMB dashboard, and then accept the admission. Failure to do so means forfeiture of the admission. And, certainly, you would not want that to happen to you. Therefore, take your JAMB registration very seriously.
- Also, when you gain admission from JAMB and your university of choice, you will need to print out JAMB’s admission letter from your dashboard. When you finally get admitted, it’s through the jamb profile that you can print out your admission letter.
How to upload results on the JAMB portal with ease
Uploading your results on the JAMB portal would be very easy for you, especially if you follow this article’s guide.
Before we dive into uploading results on the JAMB portal, it would be necessary to clarify a particular question students ask.
And the question goes thus “When uploading my results on the JAMB portal, can I combine two O’Level results”?
Well, the answer to the above question is yes!!. You can upload or even merge two O’Level results.
The only issue is that you can’t merge the same O’level result. For example, you can upload a WASSCE and GCE result, but not WASSCE and WASSCE.
But before uploading any results, you should verify your O’level upload status by:
- First of all, log in to your JAMB profile (https://portal.JAMB.gov.ng/efacility_/)
- Next, you click on Check Admission Status,
- Then click on access my CAPS
- After clicking on “access my CAPS”, you can then confirm if your O’level result has been uploaded.
- Click on “My O’level result” to confirm if your O’level result has been uploaded.
After the verification of the upload of your result on the JAMB portal, you can then visit any accredited JAMB CBT center close to you, or the JAMB office, to upload your O’level result.
For the accreditation, you would need to package your O’level files so that they can easily be uploaded. When you get to the accredited CBT center or JAMB center, all you need to do is state your intention, and they will do it for you.
Normally, uploading results on the JAMB portal should be free, but some centers can charge you at least five hundred naira, for uploading your results on the JAMB portal.
And also, JAMB would need to verify the upload of your result on their portal. So you may not get to see the approval immediately. Hence the need to make use of closeby centers.
Uploading O’level Result on the Portal of your School of Choice
Asides from uploading your result on the JAMB portal, you also need to upload it on the portal of your choice school.

- Log in or create an account with the school’s portal.
- Navigate to the O’level section
- Select or enter the subjects on your O’level result and select their grades.
- Then confirm your entry and save it
