What You Need to Know About Using Awaiting Result for Admission

Many students believe that they will not be admitted or will not receive the kind of consideration they would have received if they had uploaded their O’level results on time during the registration exercise.

In fact, 70% of SSCE students believe that there is no need to apply for admission or register for JAMB with awaiting results as you stand to be disqualified.


But that is not true. If you are awaiting the release of your O’ level results, you will be allowed to indicate that you are still awaiting the release of your O’level results when registering for JAMB or filling the Post UTME Form.

What you need to know is that there is nothing wrong with seeking admission or registering for JAMB this year using awaiting results. You will be giving the same consideration as those who uploaded their results during registration. If not, then such an option would not have been made available in the first place.

Most schools usually give awaiting result candidates a time frame to enable them to upload their results on the school portal once the results are available.

Therefore, to enable your school of choice to determine whether you are qualified for admission or not, you will be giving a time frame to upload your O’level result once the results are available before the admission process for that particular year ends.

This means that you need to upload your results before the deadline given by your school of choice or before the conclusion of the admission exercise.


It is only when you fail to provide your results within the time frame given by the school you applied for admission that you will be disqualified or not considered for admission.

We wish you Good luck and hope you gain admission this year.
