JAMB Shows, “You Have Already Used this Service” Error

JAMB logo
While trying to print the original JAMB result, a candidate got this error “You have Already Used this Service”.

A few other candidates got the same while trying to pay for the change of institutions/courses and related JAMB services.

This may be why you’re on this page too.

Of course, while trying to:

  1. print oroginal JAMB result,
  2. print JAMB admission letters
  3. do a change of institutions/courses
  4. or similar services

candidates must make payments and proceed to print or perform the activities they’ve just paid for.

However, while trying to pay online or generate remita reference (RRR) for the service, the JAMB portal may greet you with “You Have Already Used this Service. Thank you.”

With this error, you may not know what to do and in fact, you may not know what has caused it.

I’m about to tell you why this error and what to do about it in order to be able to print.

Why the JAMB Error, “You Have Already Used this Service”?

Generally, this error will pop up if you’d once used the same service you’re trying to pay for using the same JAMB profile.

If you’re using the last year’s JAMB profile for this year’s admission, and the last admission, you paid for the same service and used it to perform the operation, the portal will show this error if intend to do the same this year.

For example, Mr. Yinka sought an admission last year with his JAMB profile. Then, he printed his original JAMB result. Remember, he got a JAMB registration number last year. This year, he used the same profile but got another JAMB registration number.

Now, to print the original JAMB result for the new JAMB registration number, the portal will complain that He Had Already Used this Service.

Unfortunately, the portal won’t tell him what to do about it.
