JAMB Act: Senate Recommends 3-Year Validity For Jamb Result



The senate has amended the act establishing the joint admissions and matriculation board.

The amendment prescribes 3 years validity for results of candidates seeking admission into tertiary institutions in the country.


Federal lawmakers took this decision to amend the JAMB Act during Thursday’s legislative proceedings.

As a result of this, results obtained from the board by candidates seeking admission into universities are expected to last for three years.
A statement issued on its official social media account states that:
“The Nigerian Senate just passed the amendment to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s Act #JAMBBill SB. 245 into law.
In the amendment passed, the Senate strengthened the Board to allow the results of students in the annual examination be valid beyond that year.
Chairman of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Education and TETFund, Senator Jibrin Barau while presenting the report of his committee on the JAMB Bill explained that the amendments will further strengthen the Admissions Board in its responsibilities.
Senate President Bukola Saraki, in appreciating his distinguished colleagues for their work towards the passage of the bill commented that the new amendments will indeed bring financial relief to students as well as parents and reduce bottlenecks and corruption in the admission process.”
