JAMB change of course & institution 2019/2020 has not been announced.
Sequel to the release of this year’s JAMB result, many candidates developed a change of plans and would want to change their Course/Institution on JAMB change of course portal.
Such candidates have asked us several questions to know when the JAMB change of institution and course portal 2019 will be closed. This post will guide candidates who are yet to change their course and institution on JAMB portal, on all they need to know about JAMB change of institution closing date.
Here’s the brutal truth:
Usually, there’s no particular or official closing date for the JAMB change of course/institution 2019. The change of course/institution form will be available until the admission for the session is fully decided. That is to say that the 2019 JAMB change of institution/course is still on until the admission for the 2019 academic session is fully decided.
JAMB Change of Course and Institution Closing Date For 2019
JAMB change of course/institution closing date news 2019 not yet clear to you? Here’s what JAMB’s Head of Public Relation Mr Febian Benjamin has to say about JAMB change of course and institution closing date.
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 the 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 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 University of Lagos and later consider ESUT the statistic will reflect the second choice.
“So that when we are giving account of admission of candidate, we will be able to provide accurate statistic and not distorted data we have been dishing out before.”
From the above release on JAMB change of institution closing date, it simply depicts that technically, there’s no closing date for JAMB change of course and institution as the closing of admission offer for the year is tantamount to JAMB change of course and institution closing date.
After admission offer timeframe, there will be no room for a change of course and institution again.
