Another time when JAMB Change of course and Institution always come out is after the official cut off marks for all schools has been released.
At this time, candidates will be able to compare the results ot the JAMB Score they had with the official cut off mark of the school they are applying to and see if they are qualified to participate in the school’s post-utme screening exercise.
For those who they score won’t be enough to gain them admission into the University, Polytechnic, or Colleges of Education they applied to will now have to do a change of course and institution.
This is usually when the need arises and as such, JAMB makes the form available for the affected candidates to proceed and effect the necessary changes.
