Jamb Change Of Course And Institution Form, The Requirements And Procedures

We want to use this medium to inform all the candidates who participated in the last JAMB UTME that the change of JAMB course and/or institution has commenced.

Please note that this change of institution and course was introduced to allow JAMB candidates who already know their scores and have verified the cut-off mark of their chosen institutions, to make all necessary changes in their choice of course and institution relative to their score. 

In case you scored 180 in the JAMB examination and you choose a competitive Institution such as University of Ilorin, UNILORIN, University of Port Harcourt, UNIPORT, then you can now apply for a less competitive one to increase your chance of getting admission. And again if you chose a popular/competitive course such as Surgery and Medicine, Accounting, etc. when your score is 199 and below, then you really need to apply for change of course and/or institution.

What You Need To Know First

Please pay attention to the info below, you will not be able to correct any mistake you made hereafter.
