2. Where Can I Change My Course or Institution?

Ans = However, you should do the change at any accredited JAMB CBT centre near you. Also, it can be done at cyber cafes, but when you have any problems with it, you will need to go to the cbt centre to solve it.

There is no limit to the number of times you can change your institution or course, but in the case of data correction, you can only do it once. Data correction means a change of name, date of birth, state, local government, gender JAMB subject combination, etc.
