JAMB Change of Institution/Course | If you are contemplating altering your course or institution on the JAMB portal, this article outlines the procedures involved in making these adjustments. Below are the Guidelines for Changing Your Course and Institution on the JAMB Portal

This platform was introduced to facilitate JAMB candidates who already know their UTME scores and confirm the cut-off marks of their preferred institutions, allowing them to make necessary changes to their course and institution choices based on their UTME results.

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

Similarly, candidates with lower scores (199 or lower) in popular/competitive degree courses such as Medicine and Surgery, Engineering, etc., should consider applying for a change of course.
