Contrary to the rumours and publications making rounds that JAMB candidates with awaiting result will not be able to participate in the 2017 UTME, the Joint admission and matriculation board (JAMB) has stated that candidates with Awaiting results can apply for 2017 UTME
However, such candidates must have gotten their results at the point of admission into their institution.
This information was disclosed via the Board’s official twitter handle.
The board equally stated that JAMB will not deny any Candidate the right to quality education. During registration those with results will upload their results, while Awaiting Result candidates will not upload any.
This will not in any way qualify them or make them less preferred to those with results.
So if you hope to apply for 2017 UTME using awaiting result, go ahead and do so. JAMB will not disqualify you for that.
