Deadline For Uploading of O'level Results to JAMB Portal

JAMB Never Announced the Closing Date for uploading
JAMB logo
We’re all aware that JAMB requires all candidates to upload their O’level results (WAEC, NECO, GCE, NABTEB, or NBAIS) to the board's portal. This is the only way the matriculation board can offer you admission if you eventually merit it and recommended by your proposed institutions.

JAMB has warned all candidates to do that. The warning is not limited to JAMB, each institution is asking its applicants to make sure they upload their O'level results (including the A'level results for Direct Entry applicants). In fact, some include it in their post UTME instructions.

But the question that needs to be answered is, “When is the closing date for uploading of the results?” In other words, candidates want to be sure of the deadline so they can know when to visit the nearest CBT centre for scanning and uploading.

UPDATE: See The Date WAEC Promised to Release May/June Results 

When is JAMB Going to End the Uploading of SSCE/Alevel Results?

This question is often asked by candidates who are awaiting NECO, WAEC, NABTEB, GCE, IJMB, JUPEB, NABTEB, and/or Cambridge Advanced results. So also, candidates who didn’t go with their result printouts when registering UTMEs in the first place.

Below is the direct answer.

No official deadline for uploading of the O’level results to the JAMB portal. So also, no official closing date announced by individual universities, polytechnics, or the college of education.

But there is more to know before you go for a night of deep sleep.

What is JAMB's Position on the Final Date?

JAMB generally wants all admission seekers to upload their results before you can gain admission into any school through UTME.

However, they give you the opportunity to use awaiting results if you’re still expecting your WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, or GCE result to be released.

As a result, the board requires you to go back to any CBT centre (not necessarily where you registered your UTME) to upload the results as soon they're released. They hope these results will be out before your proposed schools start releasing their admission lists.

Therefore, what is important to JAMB is for all applicants to do the uploading before admission lists start to be coming out for their schools rather than on/before a particular date.

What is Your Institution’s Position on the Final Date?

Each school is worried that its applicants may miss admission if their O’level results are not with JAMB. This is why they’re clamoring you must upload before their admission lists are sent to JAMB for processing.

In other words, each school will send the lists of admitted candidates to JAMB  or upload them to CAPS. And if your results are not uploaded, JAMB will drop you off the list – until you upload it.

Therefore, the school is not clamoring because they won’t offer you admission. It’s because even if they offer you without uploading your O’level results, JAMB will still drop you off the list.

For instance, Ladoke Akinola University of Technology, Ogobomoso, Oyo State, in the 2020/2021 admission year, sent the following message to warn its aspirants on this.

O'level and A'level results uploading notice from LAUTECH
If an institution announces on her portal or through the post UTME avert that you must upload your results before a particular deadline, this may mean the school may likely start to release her lists starting from that date.

Conclusion

JAMB doesn’t announce a specific date to end the uploading of results. A few schools may announce the deadline because they believe, by that date, they would be forwarding admission lists to JAMB/CAPS.

Hence, it’s compulsory to watch out for your school post UTME deadline and ensure you upload before or at that time. Don’t forget, after the post-UTME/screening, what follows is the admission lists.

    1. Check the subjects uploaded. Are they the required subjects for your proposed course? If yes, no need to worry. If no, kindly return to a CBT centre and re-upload.

      It may also mean that the CBT centre was not doing it correctly. I advise you try another CBT centre. Then, make sure you confirm the upload on your own device before leaving there.

    1. You have to hold for a few days and see if the status will change. If it doesn't change to ADMITTED within a week or so, kindly visit the university and complain at the school ICT or admission office. They will contact JAMB on the issue.

    1. If the subjects is not needed for your course, you can upload it. If it's needed, wait for it to be released before uploading. It won't take months for the exam body to release outstanding subjects.
