JAMB Change of Institution/Course (Data Correction) 2024/2025

JAMB Change of Institution/Course; This article outlines the requisite procedures for JAMB candidates seeking to modify their course or institution preference on the JAMB portal. Presented below are the guidelines to be followed when changing the course or institution:

The JAMB portal is established to assist candidates who have already received their UTME scores and know the cut-off marks of their preferred institutions. It allows them to modify their course and institution choices based on their UTME results.

For candidates who have scored below 180 in the JAMB 2023 Examination and have initially applied to a highly competitive institution, this is an opportunity to apply to a less competitive institution and increase their chances of admission.

Likewise, candidates who have scored 190 or lower in popular or competitive degree courses, such as Medicine and Surgery, Engineering, etc., should consider applying for a change of course.

Given the foregoing, JAMB candidates must adhere to the stipulated guidelines to effect any necessary changes to their course or institution preferences on the JAMB portal.
