How To Change Your Course And Institution If You Scored Below Cut-Off Mark In JAMB Examination

Many 2020 JAMB candidates wished to score 3 times (250-300 points) of the cut-off mark of their first choice chosen institution in order to gain admission but unfortunately these wishes turned undoable due to one factor or the others.

If any candidates was a victim of this, he or she is advised to change his or her course and institution before he/she enroll in post UTME.

This the very reason you need to change your course and institution.

1. You scored below the aggregate cut-off mark of your institution

This is also the number one reasons why candidates need to change his or her  institution.

Many students usually say after they had written JAMB that “I don’t like to study this course or in the institution I chose during JAMB registration” due to one facility or the others which the school doesn’t offer or have.

In fact, you may like the school and your parents can ask you to change it while you might had a score that can grant you admission.

2. You observe that the course you chose is very competitive while you cannot afford

In this reason, candidates got asked as quick as speed of light during his or her registration, so he or she might have done mistakes and mentioned wrong name to the moderator (JAMB agent).

If this is your situation, then you are advised to change what should be changed before you start anything.
