JAMB 2018 Change Of Course, Institution And Data Correction Process Has Begun

The JAMB change of course and institution for 2018 has begun. The board has directed all candidates who wish to change their course/ institution to proceed to the board’s site and follow the procedure as displayed.

The process is currently ongoing and costs N2, 500 only and can only be processed online, just like every other process of the board.

JAMB 2018 Change Of Course, Institution And Data Correction Process Has Begun

All candidates who wish to effect changes on either their course institution or their bio-data can proceed to do so at the closest JAMB CBT accredited centre.

You can also correct your Bio-data which include your name, date of birth, gender, State and Local Government of origin.

Before you proceed to do that, please make sure you do the following;

-Be sure of the Course/Institution you would like to make changes. Verify if the course is available in the school using the JAMB Brochure.

-Ensure verify that the school you are changing to does not usually have a cut off mark higher than your score.

- Ensure you select a Course/Institution that is in line with your subject combination to avoid being screened out during your school's admission screening exercise.

Process Flow

Step 1- Log into your jamb profile
Step 2- open the menu tab on your jamb profile
Step 3- Click Register, under register a drop box will appear showing UTME correction of data
Step 4- Click it and follow the steps to pay either online or bank. You can make your payment online via JAMB portal. If you are having difficulties doing that, you can pay to the bank. Step 6- After paying N2500 at the bank plus additional bank charge of N100 naira, proceed to either the closest JAMB office or a JAMB accredited centre to complete the process. An additional fee will be charged for the service.

Note: You can carry out all of the above process at an accredited centre.

Also note the following;

- You can change one or all your courses/institutions at the same time.

- Once the form is submitted, you can no longer make any changes again except for change of course and institution that can be done twice.

 -There may be a limited number of schools or courses you can change to, so be sure to have 3 or 4 options, just in case the one you want to change to is not available.

- The cost for the change of course and Data correction is N2,500.

- You can use the one time payment of N2, 500 to change your institution, course, name, date of birth, State and Local Government of origin.

If you have successfully done yours, use the comment section to let us know how it went.

    This is to inform all 2018 JAMB candidates that JAMB has re-enabled the portal for the Data Correction/change of course and institution .

    All candidates who wish to effect changes on either their course/institution, Gender & State/LGA are to note that "this can be done on the e-facility platform from their mobile phones, home and not CBT Centres alone" as i said earlier. (was just updated online and not offline again)

Pls is there difference between d original jamb slip and d change of course slip.becos my is d same with d formal jamb slip but different course and institution. Someone told me i have not done change of course pls what is d difference
  • M_Nonny: There is no difference. This years Change of course slip has no printout, after the changes they will just reprint your registration slip using your reg. number so that the changes will reflect.

    unlike other years you see something like "New choice of course/institution" crossed with horinzontal line
    Like 1    Dislike 0   8 months ago
  • M_Nonny: UPDATE:

    Change of course /institution can now be done TWICE , and can now be done anywhere and not CBT centre alone

    There's change of course /institution printout, but if have done/changed yours earlier before now, don't worry keep your own printout it's the same thing.

  • M_Nonny: @lanskeed, not true pal, even last year... you can't change the both for #2500,


    The only difference this year is;

    1. Can only be done in CBT centre/ JAMB state offices nationwide.

    2. So far, change of course/institution can only be done once, even after paying for the service again.

    3. No change of course printout unlike other years, just after the changes they will reprint your slip so that the changes will appear.

    Be guided!
