1. What is the change of data, institutions and courses?

This is an exercise opened by Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) to allow candidates who had made some mistakes during UTME registration do some corrections.

Mistakes that can be corrected during this exercise include the name error (especially spelling mistakes), Gender/sex (male/female), date of birth, state and local government.

Candidate can also change institutions and courses if a school has already offered him or her a course different from the one chosen in UTME.In this case, the candidate will be instructed to effect a change of course to the new course before printing JAMB admission letters.

2. Is it compulsory to do a change of institutions and courses?

No.

Unless you deem it needed for your admission, you don’t have to do any change of data, institutions and courses.

Where you think if you don’t change, it may affect your admission, consider doing it.

For instance, if you score less mark than your school/course of choice will consider, it's advisable you change to school/course that accepts the score you have.

Another instance is if your proposed institution takes catchment areas serious in her admission selection, you may want to consider changing your local government to the one favored by them.

There may need to do a change of date of birth if you think your current age may affect you in the future e.g for NYSC mobilization, employment purpose and so on.

NOTE: Don't choose a local government you're not sure you can get her state of origin certificate or identification letter.

3. Can I do correction of name, if I (they) make spelling mistakes during UTME registration?

Yes.

JAMB allows you to do a change of name on her website through your JAMB profile.

You will need to pay #2500 online for this service.

In case of correction of name, you may be required to submit your print out and birth certificate to JAMB branch office before it can be effected.

But you will first apply online before submitting the documents to the nearest JAMB office.

In case this option is not available, consider returning to the CBT center to effect the change of names.

4. How do I change institutions and courses? Do I need to go back to JAMB CBT centre?

First, you don’t need to go to CBT center for any changes. You can do it at a nearby internet cafĂ© or on your personal computer. The only case that can take you back to CBT center is if an option is not made available in your JAMB profile. Cases like a change of name, date of birth or JAMB subject combination may take you back to CBT centre.

Meanwhile, you can access your you profile yourself or at a cafe. But if the closest place is CBT center, they will equally attend to you.

To do the changes:
  1. Log into your JAMB profile with JAMB profile email and its password.
  2. Locate the current year (or the year you want to effect) change of data link
  3. Choose that and follow the next instructions to make the payment and effect the changes.
You will pay #2500 using your ATM card through Remita platform. So, get ready with your card – especially MasterCard.

If it is the change of institutions and/or courses, you’re allowed only TWICE. Though there are cases of three-time changes. To get these processes in detail, read, How to Change Institutions/Courses the Third Time. See Guide!

If it’s the change of name, date of birth, gender, local government or state; you’re only allowed ONCE.

You can alter all.

You have four institutions and four courses. All of them can be altered to new ones. All at the same price of N2,500.

7. Do I have to pay separate money for change of institution and another for change of courses?

No.

The #2,500 you pay will be used to alter any (or all) institutions together with any (all) courses.

In other words, you don't have to pay separately for each change. One payment effect all. Once your change(s) is/are submitted, you will need to pay another N2,500 for a new change.

8. Do I have to print anything after completing the registration?

Yes.

You may have a confirmation page to print. This page will display your previous choices above, and new choices below.

9. Do I need this print-out for Admission?

No.

You don’t need it. Unless they ask for it, never should you give or submit it to any school.

Instead, reprint your JAMB result (the original one) to display your new choices.

10. Will the new schools know that I didn’t choose them initially or during UTME registration?

No.

JAMB will not send a list of students that chose a school to them until the change of institutions is closed.

However, if you do your change of institutions late, the school may know, especially if JAMB is sending lists of students to them in batches.

That’s why it is advisable to do your changes on time.
