The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has described as illegal the amount of money charged by institutions as change of course fee
This was disclosed by the Head of Media and Information of the board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin in a chat with newsmen.
According to him, once a candidate registers for UTME he/she automatically becomes an applicant in all the over 300 tertiary institutions in the country.
He further stressed that this was part of the reason JAMB made provision for one preferred university, one polytechnic and one college of education in their application forms so as to broaden their chances of securing admission at any level.
Concerning the readiness of JAMB for this year’s UTME, he stated that the board would not leave any stone unturned to conduct a hitch-free exam far better than the last edition.
Meanwhile, for candidates who would like to effect changes in either their courses or institutions, you will be able to do that after you have sat for the exam and your result released. For more information on how you can do that, please visit this link: JAMB Change of Course/Institution
