Although there is a price for it. The Price for Jamb Correction is N2,500.00 (Two thousand five hundred naira) only.

But thanks to Nigeriaschool.com.ng Team who are always eager to help anywhere possible!

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.
