The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have made the portal available for candidates who sat for the JAMB 2019 exam to pick up the change of Institution and course form. However, this is to allow candidates make the necessary changes in their previously selected institution.

Please all candidates should know that they are advised not to apply for change of institution to an institution that have conducted their post UTME screening exercise.

Reasons Candidates May Want To Change Their Institution

There are lots of reasons why candidates will want to change their chosen jamb institution, but here are three most vital reasons why a candidate may want to do that

  1. A Low Jamb Score: once jamb has released results, candidates will now have to face the admission screening exercise and then the admissions process. So when a candidate who applied for a particular school that has a higher cut off mark and then the candidate scored low, then it will be of necessity to change to another school with a lower cut off mark to increase the chances of having admission.
  2. ‘O’ Level Result Not Complete: there are some candidates that might not have up to the number of credit passes that is required for admission on their chosen institution
  3. Registration Errors: if you ever made errors during your registration, you can now do all corrections such as course, faculty and institution.

Other things that will make a candidate to perform some changes could include financial challenges, changes in demographical locations, Parental and friends suggestions.

Please note that changing of institution is only allowed to be done once and also, you can only change to an institution that their cut off mark matches what you already scored in your jamb result.
