As candidates begin to check their 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results, Naija News reports that there is a difference between (ordinary) Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) result and original JAMB result.
Naija News understands that candidates are checking their result via sending ‘result’ to the shortcode 55019.
However, it is noteworthy that the original UTME result is absolutely needed – especially when you have been offered provisional admission by your choice institution.
The original JAMB result will set forth more information than notification of result. It will further show:
Schools of choice and courses picked
Normally, candidates print the JAMB (notification of result) for N200 at cafes, printing Original result is priced at N1,700.
This price is not fixed because the original result requires paying N1,000 to the examination body, JAMB (excluding online/Remita charges).
It is important that it is printed in colour which will understandably increase a cafe’s charge.
