Why Change Course Or Institution?
To put the answer simply; JAMB change of course and institution helps candidates who had a low JAMB score that is not up to they school of choice cut off mark to change to another school with cut off mark that is exactly the same with they JAMB score or below it.
So for example, Daniel chose University of Benin (UNIBEN) as his most preferred choice of institution and had a JAMB score of 190. Meanwhile, University of Benin cut off mark is 200. How will Daniel now gain admission since he did not meet up with his school of choice cut off mark?
Luckily, Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) is another university that has a cut off mark of 180. So, for Daniel to have a chance of been offered admission, he will have to do a change of institution to UNIZIK that has a JAMB cut off mark lower than his JAMB score. Same analogy applies to the change of course aspect of it.
