There is a big difference between (ordinary) Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) result and the one called ORIGINAL JAMB RESULT. The original Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result is absolutely needed – especially when you have been offered provisional admission by your choice institution.
News reports that original JAMB result will display more information than notification of result. It will further show:
- Passport photo
- Schools of choice and courses chosen
While candidates usually print the JAMB result for about N200 at local cafes, printing Original result will cost around N1,700. This price change is because the original result involves paying N1,000 to JAMB (excluding online/Remita charges).
It is noteworthy that it has to be printed in colour which will increase a café’s service charge.
Printing Original JAMB result does not have to be immediately. It will only become paramount when your Post-UTME registration and school’s admission exercise begins or after being offered admission.
