What is the JAMB result validity period and how many years will it take before it expires?
Most students want to know the answer to these questions, I will be explaining them in this article today.
A student once asked me: “Sir, can I use my last year’s JAMB result for this year?”. This is why I figured out I needed to answer this in my next post.
Let’s get right into it…
How long is JAMB valid for?
JAMB results are valid for only one year.
Candidates are advised to make use of their results before it expires.
Since 2016, the bill to extend the result validity period has not been enacted by the board.

Is JAMB valid for three years?
No, the JAMB result is not valid for 3 years.
It was in 2016 that the board contemplated extending the validity period to three years.
However, up till now, they haven’t come to a conclusion on whether it should be extended or not.
If they extend it to 3 years, the federal government will be at a loss. This is because they make billions of naira in revenue from JAMB every year.
With this said, your JAMB result is not valid for three years.
Can I use the 2022 JAMB result in 2023?
You can use it only if it is still valid.
Check when it will expire below. Anything after this date, your 2022 result is rendered useless for admission purposes.
I believe most schools released their post utme screening forms early, so there is no excuse for you not to use the result.
When will the JAMB 2022 result expire?
Since the UTME results were released on the 25th of June, 2022 , they will expire on June 25, 2023.
That makes it exactly one year. You need to use it for admission before it expires.
Candidates who fail to use their results until they expired will have to sit for next year’s JAMB exam.
How many times is JAMB written in a year?
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board exam is written once a year.
JAMB does not take place more than once every year.
Those that registered late or had issues with their registrations may be given the opportunity of doing a mop-up exam which is usually done after the main exam has been done.
However, those that missed the registration will have to register for JAMB in the coming year.
How many times can JAMB results be used?
You can use your JAMB utme result as many times as possible as far as it hasn’t expired.
Only a valid JAMB result can be used for admission into tertiary institutions within and outside of Nigeria.
