Why The Question Arises: Many persons claim that after checking their JAMB result for the second time, the score increased by 40 marks whereas for some persons, it increased by 20 marks compared to the first time they checked.

Because of that, they now come to the conclusion that JAMB added 40 marks to all results. But is that true? Before we answer that questions, it is worth of note to mention that same scenario happened last year and the management of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board came up with an official news release to debunk the news.

So, while JAMB has not officially released any statement yet concerning the addition of marks, please be aware that JAMB did not add 40 marks or 20 marks to any JAMB result.

If you checked your JAMB result using 55019 and you saw two different scores, you may want to check your JAMB result with registration number on JAMB portal. See How To Check JAMB Result With Only Registration Number here.
