Good news guys!
Seen your 2016 JAMB result and you want to change the course or Institution you initially registered for, then go nowhere, this information is for you.
The Joint Admission And Matriculation Board (JAMB) has made arrangement and launched the portal for 2016 change of course and institution.
This is to enable candidates effect the needed changes in their earlier selected course and/or institution.
However there are viral information one must know about the change of course/institution for JAMB 2016.
Please note that change of course and institution can only be done once and you can only change to a course relative to your UTME Subject combination.
In addition, there are difference why a candidate may need to change his/her jamb choice of course or institution or both:
Case 1A. Due to Low UTME score:
After the release of Jamb results, the next thing to face is post-UTME and admissions. Now take for instance that someone applied for a federal university who will probably fix a cut-off mark of 200 and above; if such candidate scored less than 200, it simply means he/she has lost the admission. In this case the change of institution to a state-owned/private University becomes necessary. State universities generally fix cut-off marks below 200.
Case 1B. Due to Low UTME score:
Just like case 1A above, this happens when a candidate chose a very competitive course like Law, Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy, Engineering, etc. Several courses have greater number of applicants than others and such courses invariably attract very high cut-off marks. To avoid being left aside a candidate is advised to go for change of course within the same institution/faculty.
Case 2. Incomplete O’level results
In this case candidates who may have ran into deficiency of required credit passes in some key/relevant subjects may decide to go for change of course to accommodate themselves.
Case 3. Mistakes during registration
Was there a mistake while filling your registration by either you or the business/cyber cafe? With this help, you can now correct any errors made during registration of your course or institution.
Case 4. Other causes
These includes several factors ranging from finance, change in Geographical locations, Parent’s suggestions, Fear of Tribal differences, etc. Such cases treated under this heading result to change of institution.
