Do I Need a TOKEN/PIN to Check JAMB Results?


As soon as candidates leave the JAMB CBT hall, they want to know how to check their results. They want to know if they will buy PINs or TOKENs to see their results.


Of course, if you've checked NECO, WAEC, or NABTEB before now, you should understand that without PIN/TOKEN you won't be able to see and print your result.


In the case of JAMB, will you need a PIN or token, too, in order to check and print your UTME result?


In this post, I will answer this question and shed light on related concerns.

Checking JAMB Results Online Doesn't Require PIN/TOKEN

As soon as you hear the board is releasing results, you may need to wait to see their result checking portal open. 


Through that link you will be able to access your result and if wish, print it. 


Meanwhile, checking, through this medium, is FREE because you won't need to buy a card, token, or PIN unlike WAEC, NECO, or NABTEB. Buy NECO, WAEC, or NABTEB Result Checking Card to check and print your results.


For this result, usually called the notification of results, you will only need your JAMB profile code, JAMB registration number, the phone number used for the UTME, or the email linked to your JAMB profile to see and print your result.

You will Spend Money If You Check UTME Result With SMS But Not For PIN/TOKEN

There is another method to check your JAMB result which doesn't require visiting the board's result checking portal. Candidates will just use the SMS method using the phone number they used to receive the JAMB profile codes.


To do that, candidates will text UTMERESULT in SMS and send it to 55019/66019


Using this method, you'll be debited with #50 by the service provider i.e MTN, Glo, 9Mobile, Airtel, etc. After which the summary of your result will be sent to you through an SMS too.


In this case, there is no special PIN/serial number or a token to check the result. The system will check automatically and deliver the result to your mobile phone.


Even for free, JAMB may send the result via SMS to candidates without processing the service themselves. 

You Will Pay For Original JAMB Result But No Buying of PIN/TOKEN

There is a particular type of JAMB results which we call the ORIGINAL JAMB RESULT. This is different from the one earlier stated - that I called the notification of the result.


While the notification of UTME result is checked free online, you will need to spend at least #1000 for the ORIGINAL JAMB RESULT.


To print this, you will be required to log in to your personal JAMB portal and process the payment within your dashboard. After the successful payment, you will download and print the result.


However, it won't require buying a PIN/Token. The result is loaded immediately after the payment is made without waiting for any PIN, serial number, or token.

Conclusion

This post wouldn't be necessary if I had not seen a few candidates requesting for PIN/token to check JAMB results. They have read this rubbish from some scamming blogs, online groups, social media, and more.


The good news is that, even though there are two methods of checking the results that require payment i.e SMS request and original JAMB result, the generally known and more accessible method of checking the notification of UTME results won't need any payment. And those that require payment won't buy you any PIN or token to start with.
