The change of institution and course are introduced to enable JAMB candidates who already know their scores and have verified the cut-off mark of their choice institutions and to make the necessary changes in their choice of course and institution relative to their UTME scores.

If you scored below 180 in the JAMB 2021 Examination and you choose a competitive Institution like the University of Ilorin, UNILORIN, University of Benin, UNIBEN, then you can now apply for a less competitive one to increase your chances of admission. Or if you chose a popular/competitive course like Surgery and Medicine, Accounting, etc. And you scored 199 and below, then you really need to apply for a change of course and/or institution.

    They should re-conduct jamb for 8th-14th of March. When are we writing because I have NDA exam on the 23th of April. I need to present my proper jamb result before then. Pls jamb do something.

    1. You don’t need to write another exam. The only exam you will write is the Post UTME of the school you chose.

  3. Pls when is it going to be out some told me is out and another of my friend said is not yet out what do I do please advise me

    1. No disadvantage that I know off.
      But you have to be careful not to chose a school that has overload of applicants already.

  4. When will they bring out the application to complain that you want your result to be remarked if you believe it wasn’t your score they gave you. I think this should be done before the change of course form. What if after you change then you find out your score has increased, of what use will it be. Jamb should be considerate at least, people had studied so well to record success but they are making it hard for some people that would be great leaders. This is not fair on the path of some people. Please when will the chance to call for need to remark come. Directed to legendkid pls

  5. Some places are selling the change of institution at the rate of N500 and some 2500. Pls I don,t know if those people that are selling it 500 are fake people

    1. Please if you are in doubt. Go to Jamb office and purchase it. It should be around N1000 to N2000 at Jamb office. So I don’t know why anyone is selling it at N500.

  6. Pls I just check my utme for 2017 I score 165 and I want to change my course and institution how can u help me

  8. When is it going to be out, I mean the scrash card, because you open eyes now you will hear that is closed

    1. You have a lot of Polytechnics to choose from. And the course you want to study is up to you.

      1. Please what of 2018 jamb change of institution or course? Is the form out now? If yes. Do we go to accredited jamb center or we can do it ourselves online. Please advise

    1. Yes. According to Jamb official. The change of course/Admission will not close until the 2017/2018 session is over.

    1. Yes you can. But to avoid making any mistakes. Go to any Jamb zonal office close to you or Jamb accredited centres.
