Can I Edit My JAMB Details After Submitting at CBT Centre

Okay, so you've just finished filling out your JAMB registration, hit the submit button, and then – boom – you realize you made a mistake with your details. Now you're freaking out, right? Well, let's break down what you can and can't do about it.

You Can't Change Email and Phone Number

First off, the hard truth: once you've entered and submitted your email and phone number in the JAMB registration, that's pretty much it. They're locked in. JAMB is super strict about this. It's like, once you've sent a text message, you can't take it back; it's the same with these details. So, if you made a typo in your email or gave the wrong phone number, you're in a bit of a pickle.

Why are they so rigid about this? It's all about security and keeping your information consistent. They want to make sure that all communication goes to the right person and that your exam details are super secure. So, it's super important to double-check these details before you hit that submit button.

In case you do make a mistake with your email or phone number, it's not the end of the world, but it's definitely a headache. You might have to get creative – like if you entered a wrong email that doesn't exist, you could try creating that email address if it's still available. It's a bit of a long shot, but sometimes you've got to think outside the box.

You Can Change Schools, Courses, and Bio-Data

But hey, it's not all doom and gloom. There are some things you can change after submission. If you're having second thoughts about the university you chose or the course you want to study, there's a bit of wiggle room. 

JAMB usually allows candidates to change their choices of institution and/or course after the UTME results are out. It's like a "choose your own adventure" book where you get a chance to flip back a few pages and take a different path.

Now, how do you go about making these changes? Usually, JAMB opens a window for this kind of amendment for a limited period. You'll need to keep an eye on their announcements or check their website regularly to know when this window opens. And yes, it's not free – there's a fee for making these changes. It's like paying for a new ticket when you miss your flight and need to rebook.

Similarly, you're free to change your names, following the acceptable procedures. You can also change the state of origin, local government of origin, and gender

Remember, though, even with these changes, there are rules. You can't just wake up one day and decide you want to study Astronautical Engineering at a university that doesn't even offer it. Your changes have to be realistic and within the options available.

Take Away

So, what's the big takeaway from all of this? Basically, when you're filling out your JAMB form, take it slow. Double-check everything – and I mean everything. Your email, your phone number, your course choices – give them all a good look-over. It might seem tedious, but it's way better than realizing later that you've made a mistake and then scrambling to fix it.

Lastly, stay updated with JAMB's announcements. They sometimes make changes to their policies, and you don't want to miss out on any new opportunities or requirements. Think of it like keeping up with your favorite TV show – you don't want to miss an episode and then be lost in the next one.


So there you have it. The JAMB registration process can be a bit of a rollercoaster, but as long as you're careful with your details and stay informed about their policies, you'll be just fine. 

And hey, if you do slip up, don't beat yourself up too much. We're all human, after all. Just try to fix what you can and roll with the punches. Good luck with your JAMB journey!
