Finally, UTME 2022 is over. so what’s next?

After writing UTME, many students tend to focus on other things after checking their results and forget about the next step after JAMB.

In this article, I will share with you six things you must do after checking your Jamb result, but first, let me congratulate you on the success of your exam, and if you didn’t do well, don’t worry; you can always improve by trying again. If you haven’t checked your results yet, here’s how. Send UTMERESULT to 55019 from the phone number you used to register.

Let us now move on to the main reason for writing this article.

6 Things you must do after checking your Jamb result

Check to see if you meet the cut off mark.

After reviewing your results, the first thing you should do is ascertain whether or not you meet the cut off mark.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announced a new cut off mark of 150 and above for all federal, state, and private universities, as well as 130 for polytechnics and 120 for colleges of education in Nigeria for 2022/2023 admission.

The above cut off marks are only JAMB cut off marks because each institution has its cut-off mark, for example, some federal universities have a cut-off of 200 or higher. Check to see if your score qualifies you for the school you selected; if not, you can apply for a change of institution.

Check Your Course and Institution Competitiveness.

Now that you know your cut-off mark, it is important to understand the competitiveness of your course and institution.

This will help you plan for your post-UTME and determine your chances of admission because some institutions and courses are highly competitive.

Check Your Subject Combination

I know you must have done this before taking JAMB, but it is important to confirm again because your O-Level combination, in addition to your Jamb combination, must meet the admission requirements of your institution.

Upload Your O Level results

This step applies to students who used awaiting results option. After seeing your Jamb results and confirming that your o level result isĀ out, go to the nearest Jamb office to upload your results to those who must have uploaded their results during registration.

It is very important to confirm again because errors and network issues from the JAMBĀ server can occur at any time. Always check from time to time and if you notice any issues, go to the nearest Jamb centre to complain.

Start Preparing For Post UTME

After seeing your results and confirming your cut-off, it is best to start preparing for Post-UTME because the earlier you prepare, the more you will cover, get past questions, and study effectively. For those whose institutions do not use post-UTME screening, begin preparing for your screening by ensuring you have all the required documents.

After Post UTME and Screening, learn a Skill

I often tell students that learning a skill will help them stand out, imagine you have learned skill such as coding which is really in high demand these days, learning such a skill will help them stand out and also keep them busy instead of roaming about doing nothing, other things you do and skills Learn are
