In other words, changing of courses and/or institutions on the JAMB portal will continue until admission ends. This has been confirmed by the authorities of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board when asked about the closing date for this data correction.
JAMB Change of Course & Institution Closing Date 2019/2020
In case you are wondering how genuine this information is, well, you can read the following excerpts from an interview granted by Fabian Benjamin. Mr. Benjamin is JAMB’s Head of Public Relations. In the interview granted during 2017/2018 admission exercise, he said the following:
“It is a continuous exercise, and we do not intend to close the procedure; it will only close after admission has been concluded.
“This is so because there are moments whereby candidates who chose a particular institution will not have an opportunity there, and another one will want to offer them admission.
“If closed, it will be difficult to access such offer; all candidates need to do is go back to the portal and make changes to those institutions and access available opportunities.
“We want to avoid a situation whereby candidates will have multiple admission and will take one and be denied that opportunity.
“When we do that, statistics will be strengthened; if candidates choose the University of Lagos and later consider YabaTech, the statistic will reflect the second choice.
“So that when we are giving an account of admission of the candidate, we will be able to provide accurate statistic and not distorted data we have been dishing out before.”
In light of this, JAMB change of course and institution portal 2018 will remain open until the end of admission exercise. To clarify, you can still make those changes as there’s technically no closing date. When admission ends, you can’t even get admission into any school, let alone change from one to another.
