The current trend of worries amongst most 2020/2021 Post UTME Prospective Applicants is the challenge of delay in the writing of WAEC and/or NECO examinations. This is because most Jambites used awaiting results in their JAMB applications.

What is Awaiting Result

Awaiting result refers to a situation where a candidate who intend to apply for JAMB examination do not have O’level results. It may also be that the candidate have O’level result but it is incomplete, maybe there is no Maths, English or one major course needed to complete the 5 O’level requirements for his/her programme of study.

Such candidate is expected to use the acronym AR, meaning awaiting result while filling the O’level grades in the JAMB form. The candidate does this because he/she has or is expected to register for WAEC/NECO and when the result is out, you are to go back to JAMB portal and do what is called O’level Reupload.
