Well, here is all you need to know about changing your Jamb Institution or Course.
How to Choose a different Institution or Course with the Jamb Portal
The Jamb change of Institution or Course was introduced for those candidates who have seen their Jamb results and intend to change their erstwhile choice of Schools due to their score.
The cut-off mark for getting into Higher Institutions varies from one school to the next, with some being lower than others.
After seeing your Jamb score and it’s less than that of your chosen Institution, you have a chance to switch to an Institution requiring a lesser cut off mark.

Before applying for this change of Institution, it is important you verify that the new school you’re picking actually accept students with your attained cut off mark.
As at now, Jamb allows each candidate to change their Institution or course only once, after which no further changes can be made.
