Why Do JAMB Withheld Some Results & What To Do

You get that strange feeling when you check your JAMB result, which has been withheld while your friends have seen theirs with no problems.

Enough of the sarcasm. Why exactly did JAMB hold some candidates’ results? What can you do if this happens to you? You will find answers to these questions in this article.

Read to the end to discover more information about the 2024 withheld scores or results.

Why JAMB Withheld Some Results & When It Will Be Released

Without wasting your time, let me explain the reasons. The significant reasons why JAMB withheld some results are:

  1. Examination Malpractice: Some malpractice occurred during your exam, which they detected.
  2. Banned CBT centre: You registered or did your exam at the centre the board banned.
  3. Impersonation: Impersonation was detected. This is why you need to do fingerprint verification during registration and your exams.
  4. The board may have discovered other suspicious activities, making them decide.

So what can you do?

JAMB usually gives you reasons why your result was held. They may also give you instructions on what to do.

If you can’t find any instructions, log in to your JAMB efacility portal and check for what you will do to make them release the result.

Just calm down. There’s no big deal. Most of the time, it’s a false positive. They will indeed release it.

Why has JAMB not sent my result?

In case you have tried the SMS method for checking JAMB scores and you have not received any response, it may be due to the following:

  1. You have issues with the network, and your message did not get to them.
  2. You sent the message to the wrong recipient. Make sure the recipient is 55019.
  3. You don’t have any credit. Make sure you have at least fifty naira.
  4. You sent the message with a number you did not register with JAMB.
  5. The results have not been released yet.

Please note that JAMB will let you know if your JAMB result is withheld.

Is the JAMB result 2024 fake?

In the history of JAMB in Nigeria, nothing like fake results or scores has been recorded. So, it can’t happen due to the amount of work that goes into marking, scoring,g and processing these results.

Kindly ignore any rumours that JAMB 2024 results are fake, have been cancelled, or have been deleted. Rumours like this always trend on social media, online forums, and blogs filled with fake news.
