The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has disclosed that it will not close that the change of courses and institutions procedures, until 2017/2018 admission is concluded. Candidates can still visit the jamb change of course and institution portal to complete any changes they want.

According to him, it was wrong for any student to observe that the board would close the change of courses and institutions procedure soon and advised candidates to avoid panic, but take time to make decision that is suitable for them, to secure admission into higher institutions.

He further stated that the process is a continuous exercise and which the board does not intend to close now but only after admission has been concluded.

“This is so because there are moments whereby candidates who chose particular institution will not have opportunity there and other 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 Yaba-Tech 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,” he said.

He said that the change is imperative for candidates who made mistakes while choosing courses they want to study or the institution or university they want to apply to.

Benjamin explained that the process of change of courses and institutions could be done with the payment of N2, 500 in JAMB Computer Based Tests (CBT) centres and at other approved centres.

He, therefore, advised candidates who wished to change their choice of course or institution to think properly, before doing so to avoid irregularities.

Benjamin said that the board would hold the policy committee meeting on Aug. 21 and Aug. 22, to determine cut-off points for admissions this year into various courses and tertiary institutions.

He further said that the decision for the cut-off points for admission would be decided by Vice-Chancellors of universities, Rectors of Polytechnics and Mono-techniques and Provosts of Colleges of Education. (NAN)
