Can I Check My JAMB Result With Another SIM?

In the quest to check their JAMB results, students may encounter hurdles if they've lost access to their registered SIM cards, as the system mandates the use of the exact SIM for result retrieval; however, an alternative solution lies in accessing results via the JAMB portal, offering a reliable workaround for those facing SIM card challenges and ensuring a smoother process for result checking.

Every year, thousands of Nigerian students eagerly await their Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) results, a crucial step towards their higher education aspirations. Checking these results is typically done through SMS, using the same SIM card that was used to register for the JAMB profile and generate the profile code. 

However, what happens when students face issues with their SIM cards or have lost access to them? This post explores the challenges associated with checking JAMB results with a different SIM card and offers potential solutions.

The JAMB SIM Card Conundrum

The JAMB system has a stringent requirement when it comes to checking results via SMS. It stipulates that students must use the exact SIM card that was initially used to generate the JAMB profile code. This measure is put in place to ensure security and prevent fraudulent access to JAMB results.

Checking the result with SMS

However, this requirement can pose significant challenges for students who have lost their SIM cards, have blocked or damaged lines, or did not use their personal lines during the JAMB registration process. 

These students are left wondering whether there is any possibility of checking their results using a different SIM card.

The Disappointing Reality If You Want to Check With Another SIM

Regrettably, the answer to this question is no. JAMB results are tightly linked to the specific SIM card used during the registration process. 

The results will only be released to the JAMB profile associated with that particular SIM card. Therefore, attempting to use another SIM card to check your results will prove futile.

Moreover, JAMB does not provide an option for students to change or edit the phone number associated with their JAMB profile. 

Once you have registered with a particular SIM card, that SIM card is essentially tied to your profile for the duration of your admission pursuit.

Alternative Solution: Checking Results via the JAMB Portal

While the SMS method may seem like the most straightforward way to check JAMB results, there is an alternative method that can save you from the SIM card hassle. You can access and check your JAMB results through the JAMB portal on the internet. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. Visit the JAMB Portal: Open your web browser and go to the official JAMB website (
  2. Log in to Your Profile: Click on the "Login" or "E-facility" tab, and enter your JAMB email and password.
  3. Navigate to the Result Checking Section: Once logged in, look for the option to check your JAMB result. This is typically found on your dashboard or in a designated result-checking section.
  4. Access Your Result: Click on the result checking link, make the payment, and your JAMB result will be displayed on the screen.
  5. Print Your Result: You can choose to print your result for future reference or admission purposes.


While the requirement to use the same SIM card to check JAMB results can be frustrating for students facing issues with their phone lines, it is a security measure aimed at protecting the integrity of the results. Unfortunately, there is no way to bypass this requirement and use a different SIM card for result checking.

However, the alternative method of checking results through the JAMB portal provides a reliable solution for those facing SIM card challenges. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can access your JAMB results online, eliminating the need for a specific SIM card.
