The JAMB printout comprises of various printed documents mandatory for you to have as a UTME candidate. Usually, there are different kinds of printouts that you can get from the JAMB website. There is one that gives you details as regards your registration—the different courses you would be sitting for, your registration number, your examination number, your state of origin, your Local Government Area, your gender, date of birth, and most importantly, your choice of institution.
There is also another printout from the website that provides you with the breakdown of the scores you had in the different courses you sat for, as well as the aggregate score. This particular printout is known as the result slip.
There is also one more printout which is known as your letter of admission. This letter is the one you print out after you have been offered admission by a particular university after meeting their cutoffs. The letter is usually addressed to the University by the Registrar of JAMB.
On arrival at your examination center, you would be asked to present a couple printouts that would help them in validating your identity. The document comes in form of a slip and here, we will be discussing the usefulness of the details.
It provides details as regards your JAMB registration number
The JAMB registration number is very vital when it comes to any process related to your admission into the University. It is a sure link to your JAMB portal, and it is necessary that you always have the code. Also, on getting to the exam hall for the JAMB examination, the Passcode to your page will be your registration number. So, ensure that you get the printout at least for this reason.
It validates your entrance into the examination hall
Like we said earlier, the JAMB printout slip that contains your courses and institution is one of the documents that would be required of you at the point of entry into the JAMB examination site. Without this document, you would not be allowed to write the examination.
Exam center location
Now, JAMB usually would disperse its students within geographical areas proximal to them. It is within the CBT centers in these areas that students get to write their examinations. Now, to know where JAMB posted you to, it is very necessary for you to get the printout from the JAMB portal. On your page, you would see the details of the location you are to go for your examination and the time your exam starts.
Now, this feature is only useful after you must have written the JAMB examination. JAMB releases the results of its students to their portals. To check yours, all you need to do is log into your portal with the aid of your registration number. From there, you would be able to see the different scores you had in each subject, as well as the aggregate score. The score there is usually over 400. On this same slip, you would find other details like your choice of institution arranged in order of preference, and other details you inputted at the point of registration.
This is the last feature that we would be looking at in this section. This printout is another of the printouts that you can get from the JAMB portal. This is the final printout you get from JAMB after your desired university offers you an admission. All you need to do is to just accept the admission awarded to you, and then, print out the admission letter.
Have you ever been unable to print JAMB result slip after payment? Usually, to access the JAMB portal for the printing out of your original result slip, you’d need to make a payment of about 1000 naira.
However, a situation where you are unable to print the slip even after making the necessary payments could be because of any of the following reasons;
Poor internet connection on the side of your server
Once you notice that you have bad connection on your side, it is either you wait for some time for the network to be restored, or you turn off your phone.
Busy JAMB portals
In scenarios where several people are trying to access their results at once, the portal could get very loaded, leading to slow operations on the website. The best thing to do about this issue would be to wait till the website is less jam-packed and active.
