jamb correction of data

We have been helping Jamb Candidates via email and one of the candidate actually wrote back to us. We are posting it as is;

From Omene Solomon.

I wrote some time ago telling you of the unintentional date of birth mistake made during my jamb registration.

So you (nigeriaschool.com.ng) asked me to go to any Zonal jamb office and tell you how it goes.

I went and they told me to write a letter with the contents of what happened, they told me to attach my date of birth certificate and also my Jamb slip.

And I was asked to pay the sum of Three Thousand Five Hundred Naira, (N3500.00) only.

They assured me that they will send somebody who is going to their head quarters in Abuja to make the correction and that with time it will be changed, I just want to let you know that it has been changed!
Thanks for the help.. God bless.

And this is how to change the mistakes in your Jamb Registration.

Let us know if you have any more questions.

So far, the only mistakes I have seen in JAMB is that of age and names.

    • I am not sure you can change your email…. Sorry about the ‘irritating attitude’ displayed by JAMB officials/workers. They are only good on papers.

  • Good day sir, i paid for correction of data for 2018/19 jamb, it is reflecting in my jamb portal but since then i am not be able to do the correction. when i click on the option, it keeps on bringing no data found. i went to nearest jamb office (Osogbo), they said they cannot do anything on it. pls what can i do so as i will not loose this year admission.

    • If you have laid a complaint at Jamb office and they cannot do anything. I am guessing it has to do with their portal. Please involve a lawyer to get compensation for wasting your time. Do it now.
