GUIDE TO JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE AND INSTITUTION
The JAMB change of course and institution excercise for the 2017 admission process is ongoing and this guide will help you to avoid any form of mistake in the process.
Before I go further, I would like to let you know that you should not just venture into change of course or institution because others are doing it or because you heard that the JAMB change of course and institution portal is open. First ask yourself if you truely need a change of course or institution and also acertain if the course or institution you are changing to is or will be more favourable than the one you filled in initially.
To cut the long story short, let me give you a few reasons why you should or should not apply for JAMB change of course or institution.
REASONS TO REQUEST FOR A JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE OR INSTITUTION
Before you apply for the JAMB change of course or institution, checkout the points below;
APPLY FOR JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE IF:
- You mistakenly filled a wrong course/institution during JAMB registration
- You had a change of mind over the institution or course you initially filled
- You cannot cope with the scope of the earlier choice you made
- Your JAMB score is below what the course/institution requires for an admission into it
- If your O’level subject combination is not appropriate for the course.
NOTE: Refer to the JAMB brochure before you embark on this process to avoid error.
If you have any other reason to apply for a change of course, please communicate it in the comment box after this post so I can help check if it is a necessary reason.
CONCLUSION ON JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE AND INSTITUTION GUIDE
Before you go for the JAMB change of course form, make sure you have checked if the institution and the department and course you want to change to accepts the same JAMB subject combination as the one you earlier applied or as you have in your JAMB result.
The Change of Course process costs about #2500 and can only be carried out in a JAMB accredited center so do not allow yourself to be deceived by anybody.
