After Changing Institutions, How To Know If It Has Reflected

How To Know If Your Names and Details Have Reflected on the School Portal
JAMB logo
Some candidates had called or messaged me to know how they can check if their names and details have reflected on the school they just changed to. By this, I mean what is the next step to take to confirm if the JAMB change of institution has reflected on the new school's portal?

We all should know by now that, once you do the change of institutions/courses, there are activities to expect after that. Below is the true picture of the activities that follow the change of institutions and courses.

  1. You do the change of institutions on the JAMB portal
  2. JAMB forwards your details to the new school(s)
  3. The new school(s) update(s) your names and details to the school post UTME or admission portals to enable you to register for the Post UTMEs or screenings. 
  4. Then, you register for post-UTMEs or screenings.

I detailed more of this in my post, After changing of Institution, What Next?

But the question is, after JAMB might have sent your information to the school, how will you confirm if your details have got there or if it has been updated on the school portal or better put, how will you know if it has reflected?

Well, it's a simple explanation and thing to do. But before then, we have to clear some misconceptions first.

Not All Schools Need Changes to Reflect Before You Can Register their Post UTMEs

Some institutions make things easier for their applicants. They allow you to register for their post UTMEs immediately you're done with the JAMB change of institution. In other words, they don't wait for JAMB to send any details before they allow you to continue with your post UTME registrations.

I detailed those who allow this and those who don't in my post, "Can I register for Post UTME the Same Day I do Change of Institutions?"

Therefore, if you happen to change to the schools in this category of institutions, don't wait for any reflections before you do your post UTME or screening registration. The portal will be designed to allow you to apply without waiting for any reflection yet. The school will update her database before admission lists are being prepared to include all changes.

Be Sure Your Schools Wait for JAMB Details Before Post UTME Registration

Having said that some schools will wait for your details to arrive at the school and update them to the school portal before you can register, you must be sure you know if your school belong to this category. 

The likes of OAU, UNILAG, FUNAAB, UNIBEN, ABU, UI, UNILORIN, UNN, Oko Poly, MAPOLY to mention a few, use this method.

If you belong here, you must continually be checking the schools' portals to know when your details are active on their databases. After then, you can continue with your registration.

How To Know if Your Names and Details Have Reflected on the School Portal

Follow the steps below to check if you can now register for post UTME after your changes have reflected.

  1. Visit the school admission portal. For example, the FUNAAB admission portal is https://admission.unaab.edu.ng/login.php. Getting to that page, you will see a space to enter your JAMB registration. This same applies to all other similar schools.
  2. Note that your JAMB registration number is the first thing this set of schools will ask you to enter to match your details in their databases.
  3. If you enter your JAMB registration number and log in or proceed and it enters, then, your data had been sent and updated on the school's portal/data. If otherwise, it means you have to check back. This may mean your details have not been sent or it might have been sent but not yet updated by the school.
  4. If your details are not yet sent or not yet updated, for instance, the University of Ibadan portal will complain "Login failed. Incorrect Login Credentials.", the Federal University of Abeokuta will say, "Sorry 90887176AD is NOT in our JAMB list of qualified candidates who picked FUNAAB as First Choice Institution.", Ahmadu Bello University will say, "Invalid JAMB no or state of origin"
  5. In all cases above, while it may mean you wrongly entered your JAMB registration number or candidate's details, it may also mean your data had not reflected on the school portal. Hence, you won't be allowed to register your post UTME until it does.

What To Do Next if Details Don't Reflect yet?

No need to panic. You will need to continually be checking back through the admission portal of your proposed schools. This may take a day, weeks, or even more before it reflects. It all depends on how swift your school is at updating its portal for new changes.

I detailed how long it takes the change of institution to reflect in "How Long It Takes Change of Institution/Course to Reflect". Take a look!

The First Choice Institution/Course Might Have Not Changed on JAMB CAPS Still

Meanwhile, we've got situations where candidates changed institutions and courses but it didn't reflect on the JAMB CAPS not to talk of JAMB sending it to the schools concerned. 

In this case, you change the school or course to the first choice but when you check your CAPS, you're still seeing the old first choice in the space for the first-choice institution. To know the school standing in the first position on your JAMB CAPS, read, How to Check Your 1st Choice Institution and Course on JAMB.

This is a technical issue that must be reported to JAMB. JAMB will look into it and within few days make your choice reflect and send it to the concerned institutions. To lodge such a complaint with JAMB without visiting the JAMB office, read, How to Complain to JAMB on Admissions Issues and Errors.

NEED a guide, further explanation, update or answer on something? Check if that has been covered on this blog by searching your question on Google and add schoolcontents.info in front e.g  Will I be offered admission with 150 + schoolcontents.info.  My posts on it or related ones will be displayed for you by Google.

    1. It means your change has not been sent to the school or the school has not updated her database. You may need to wait a few days to to the closing date before trying again. If the same, you can continue the registration if the portal allows to still register notwithstanding.

    1. Visit the school post UTME portal. Enter your JAMB registration number to start your registration. If it's there, it will accept it and gives you a chance to proceed with the registration. If otherwise, you will see an error similar to "details is not correct or not among those who chose the university or not in the database".

    Replies
    1. What matters to schools like Ilaro is for candidates to chose the same course they filled in the post UTME for the JAMB as well. Once, your choice of course is the same on both portals, you don't have to worry about when it will reflect. Be sure your choice of course is the same and the admission requirements are met.

    Replies
    1. If you have the change of institution confirmation slip with you, it means it has already reflected on the JAMB portal. You can print your original JAMB result to see the changes if you're still in doubt.

      As for the reflection on the school portal, I don't know why the delay. If your school's post UTNE/screening closing date is still far, it may mean the school has not updated the portal for the new changes and they're still taking their time. If however, the closing date is too close, you should just keep checking back to see if things will change. If the same till the closing date and there is no extension, consider changing to another school.

      Best wshes.

    1. Ok. A few schools will give you such a notice e.g Osun State University. The school is directly not saying that you have not changed to them. They're only telling those who have not done that to do it before JAMB will also release its own list. So, it's a general message not to you only. If you have done that before, you don't need to worry about the message.

But the problem am having sir is that when i keep checking my profile at Delsu portal I keep seeing philosophy as the course I applied for instead of psychology since my Jamb portal is already showing Psychology, Please sir will this issue affect me from been admitted into Delsu and what should I do Sir to solve this issue?
