Without PIN/Serial Number, Can I Check WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, JAMB etc

WAEC scratch card
After losing their results checkers, some students want to consider the possibility of checking the results, again, without using scratch cards i.e NECO Token, WAEC, or NABTEB PIN/Serial Number.

In fact, some candidates didn't buy cards in the first place or they couldn't get cards around them. As a result, they want to take advantage of any possible method to check results without using cards.

A candidate has just enquired about the use of SMS, Andriod, or IOS apps that can be used to check WAEC, NECO, or NABTEB without buying checking cards.

In the post below, I will be sure to answer this question.

You Can't Check WAEC, NECO, and NABTEB Results Without Cards

A checking card or scratch card is the primary requirement for checking the results of WAEC, NECO, or NABTEB.

Hence, it's required of every candidate to get one in order to check his or her result.

As a result, WAEC is providing checking PINs and serial numbers for candidates through the plastic ID Card being given to them during the exam. As for its GCE candidates, the exam photocards also contain the PINs and serial numbers to check results.

For NECO and NABTEB, be it school or private candidates exams, students are required to buy cards online or through agents and cafes in order to check their results. You can click here to buy result checkers for WAEC May/June or WAEC GCE 1st and 2nd Series.

You Can Check WAEC Results Through SMS But With Card

Although WAEC allows candidates to check their results using SMS, yet they will still need the PINs and serial numbers in order to see their results. You can click here to buy result checkers for WAEC May/June or WAEC GCE 1st and 2nd Series.

The purpose of the SMS means of checking WAEC results was to help candidates who may not have access to or are not closer to the internet or cafes.

At the rate of N300, candidates can check their WAEC/GCE results following the steps below.

Send SMS in the format below:

WAEC*ExamNo*PIN*ExamYear to 32327 (MTN, Airtel & Glo subscribers)

For example - WAEC*4250101001*123456789012*2021

Note: Ensure you adhere strictly to the format above. There should be no space in the message.

Wait for your result to be delivered to your phone via SMS.

JAMB Results Checking Doesn't Require Screach Cards

At the time of this post, JAMB doesn't require any candidate to buy a scratch card, PIN, or Token in order to check UTME results.

As a matter of fact, the platform dedicated to the checking of UTME results is open-source where generally all candidates can enter their JAMB registration number and see their results.

Candidates can use any of their emails, JAMB registration numbers, phone numbers to see their results with a few clicks at https://jamb.gov.ng/Efacility.

Meanwhile, following the link above, candidates can only check their UTME notification of results. The notification of UTME results is the general means of checking UTME results without paying a kobo.

To check and print the original JAMB result, following the last method in the linked post, you will need to make a payment of N1 excluding the online charge.


You will compulsorily need scratch cards, PIN/Serial number, or token in order to check your WAEC, NABTEB, or NECO result. However, the JAMB results can be checked without a card or any payment if it's not the original JAMB result.
