After JAMB Change of Course & Institution

Many students who have recently undergone a JAMB Change of Course or Institution have been asking me why they are unable to register for their Institution of Choice’s Post-UTME examinations.

It typically takes a few days to a week for your changes on the JAMB portal to reflect on your profile and for you to be able to register for the Post-UTME screening.

However, the good news is that universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education in Nigeria are committed to ensuring that all students can register for their screening exercise.

To sum up, the opening of the JAMB portal for the 2023 Change of Institution/Course and other corrections is excellent news for prospective candidates who want to modify their JAMB application. This opportunity provides a chance to correct any errors or mistakes made during the registration process and ensures that candidates can pursue their desired courses and institutions.

It’s crucial that candidates take advantage of this window and make the necessary corrections before the deadline. With this development, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) continues to demonstrate its dedication to providing a seamless and transparent admission process for all candidates.
