How to check JAMB 2022 results via SMS or Portal

There are two options for checking JAMB results. Applicants can check their results online (via the JAMB portal) or via SMS (using the short JAMB code).

Using the online option is totally free, you just need a device with internet to be able to check your results. SMS option is good for candidates with no internet device or candidates in poor network locations. However, use of the SMS option is billed by the network operator.

The following answers are expected:

If the applicant uses an unused phone number for registration, they will receive the following message: “This phone number is not used for registration.”
Candidates with results will receive a message: “Dear Mr/Mrs X, Your results are as follows… (and details will be provided).
If the result is withheld, the candidate will receive a “Result withheld pending the upload of clarifications/document required from you.”
If a candidate were absent, s/he would get “CANDIDATE ABSENT” as feedback
A candidate that was ABSENT WITH REGISTRATION NUMBER also CANCELLED will be so informed.
