Can I use last year JAMB result for this year admission? (Updated).
Do JAMB results ever expire?
Yes! is the simple answer.
However, how long can I use it to get admission?
The answer is: just once.
For more clearing, read additional details below.
I’ve have being getting messages about this. “Can I use my most recent UTME score for the next admission year?” Can I use my previous JAMB score this year? And there are plenty other variations…
When it was proposed that the JAMB result be used for three entrance years, I wrote you a piece about it.
And back to your question:
No, You can not use it. You need to write a new one.
You’ve been told that the last result might be utilized for another entrance year, so I know you’re receiving your information from somewhere.
It was proposed that candidates should be allowed to use their UTME scores for more than one year, however this measure was never passed. It did not become law in the end. As a result, you won’t be able to apply this year’s results next year — at least not for the time being.

Why can’t I use my previous UTME result another year?
Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, the previous JAMB registrar, I believe, justified this well. The old man claimed that JAMB was designed to assess students’ academic abilities rather than their intelligence (IQ).
If JAMB is an IQ test, it might be implemented for a longer period of time.
This rationale, however, was not acceptable because O’level scores such as WAEC, NECO, and NABTEB can be utilized for years and are not intended to measure our intelligence.
The bill to alter the Jamb Board Act has not been implemented, as we sought to convey to you. Jamb results are only valid for one year.
We can still agree with him because these SSCE results show that we finished secondary school instead of spending a year studying for an entrance exam.
Finally, don’t fight on the hope that this or the previous year’s results will be used the following year. That could happen in the future, but not for the time being.
