What Is JAMB Change of Course/Institution?

Before i go fully into telling you more about JAMB change of course or institution, let us first establish what it is and what it can do for you.

JAMB Change of course and Institution comprises of two things:

Recommended Just For You

  1. JAMB Change Of Course
  2. JAMB Change of Institution

JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE

JAMB Change of course which is the first aspect of JAMB change of course and institution combined together is a program designed by the management of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to enable candidates who wish to switch to another course that is entirely different from the one they applied originally during JAMB Registration.

JAMB Change of course is usually done within the same school of choice applied for by the candidate.

Importance of JAMB Change of Course Form

The Change of course form is very important especially for candidates who applied for a particular course in the University and after seeing his or her JAMB Result found out that the Score will not be sufficient to fetch him admission into that course or department.

For the person not to waste another extra year going to write JAMB in order to put in for another course, He or she need to buy the Change of course form and change to another less competitive department in that same school.

JAMB CHANGE OF INSTITUTION

The Second phase is the Change of Institution. This is a program designed by JAMB that allows candidates to switch to another Institution or school either a University, Polytechnic or a College of Education.

JAMB Change of institution is done by a candidate who want to change from one school to another which can be of any of the form below:

  • From one University to Another University
  • From one University to a Polytechnic
  • From one University to a College of Education
  • From one Polytechnic to a Polytechnic
  • From one Polytechnic to University
  • From one Polytechnic to a College of Education
  • From one College of Education to a College of Education
  • From one College of Education to a University or
  • From one College of Education to a Polytechnic.

Importance of JAMB Change of Institution

This is very helpful for a candidate who was unable to score up to the school of choice cut off mark.

For the candidate not to waste another in writing JAMB, he or she has to buy a Change of Institution form and change from the school to another which can be in any of the form mentioned above.

While applying for Jamb, a lot applicants may mistakenly choose a wrong course or institution they do not want to study in.

When such happens, the affected person will now seek for ways to know if it will be possible to change the course or institution selected during registration.

Jamb change of course and institution helps the affected candidates who made a mistake while selecting they course and or Institution to correct those mistakes On Jamb portal.

Now that we have established what JAMB change of institution/course is and what it can do, let us talk about why people resort to using the JAMB change of course/institution program.

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.

At this time, candidates will be able to compare their JAMB results with the official cut off mark of the school they are applying to and see if they are qualified to participate in the school’s post-utme screening exercise.
