JAMB UTME Change of Course or Institution or Both

Change your JAMB-UTME Course/Institution

If you would like to change your JAMB course, institution or both of them, for 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th choices, you need to follow the instructions on this page.

This process is now handled by JAMB directly, and so the process can only be effected from the JAMB portal. Before you proceed the effect any change in your course(s) or institution(s), let's go through reasons why you may want to change your JAMB course or institution.

Reasons why you may want to change your Course or Insititution

There are obviously three good reasons why a candidate may need to change his/her jamb choice of course or institution or both:

Case 1A. Due to Low UTME score:

After the release of Jamb results, the next thing to face is post-UTME and admissions. Now take for instance that someone applied for a federal university who will probably fix a cut-off mark of 200 and above; if such candidate scored less than 200, it simply means he/she has lost the admission. In this case the change of institution to a state-owned/private University becomes necessary. State universities generally fix cut-off marks below 200.

Case 1B. Due to Low UTME score:

Just like case 1A above, this happens when a candidate chose a very competitive course like Law, Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy, Engineering, etc. Several courses have greater number of applicants than others and such courses invariably attract very high cut-off marks. To avoid being left aside a candidate is advised to go for change of course within the same institution/faculty.

Case 2. Incomplete O'level results

In this case candidates who may have ran into deficiency of required credit passes in some key/relevant subjects may decide to go for change of course to accommodate themselves.

Case 3. Mistakes during registration

Was there a mistake while filling your registration by either you or the business/cyber cafe? With this help, you can now correct any errors made during registration of your course or institution.

Case 4. Other causes

These includes several factors ranging from finance, change in Geographical locations, Parent's suggestions, Fear of Tribal differences, etc. Such cases treated under this heading result to change of institution.

If you need help with checking;
- List of schools that are offering a course,
- List of courses that are offered in a particular school,
- If your JAMB subject combination matches with the course or institution you want to select,
- The subject or course requirement for any institution,
- The O'level requirement for a course or institution, please use the Online JAMB Brochure on this website.
