WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE/INSTITUTION PROCESS?
On yearly basis, we keep saying this. JAMB, NUC and the Ministry of Education should try to release the cut-off marks for the year before accepting applications for change of courses and change of institutions. This way, candidates would know the scores required by schools before choosing another institution during application.
Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges and other institutions should also endeavour to release their cut-off marks on time. They should release the marks before JAMB change of course/institution form comes out. This will help candidates choose school that can accept their JAMB scores.
WHAT CAN I DO?
You can still make an informed decision when it comes to choosing the right institution. If you intend to change your course or institution, you can use the cut-off marks used by institutions for last admission as a guide. This way, you are still making informed decisions.
Note that institutions can decide to change their cut-off marks for the next admission.
Every year, after change of courses and application close and Post-UTME screening starts. You can then start
