Jamb Change Of Course Institution Wahala: I have met three sets of candidates who are experiencing issues with Jamb change of institution and as a result asking three different types of Jamb COC/COI questions. I will list out the common change of institution (COI) questions and answers to them.
The First Question: I did a change of course but my old course is still appearing in the Jamb slip; how do I get it to show the course I changed to?
The Second Question: The school I changed to is not appearing; Should I still sit for post UTME since the school and course are not appearing on my slip?
The Third Question: I didn’t receive any email after a change of Institution, how am I sure that it was done successfully?
Nice questions we got above. Let’s quickly take a look at the answers.
Answers: It is normal for your Change of Institution or Course not to take effect immediately. It takes some time for the school or course you changed to reflect on your slip. This is the reason you should make changes as quickly as possible so that your name can reflect in schools post-UTME.
Jamb hasn’t sent your details to the new school you changed to that’s why the new school have not seen your record. If you only changed course it is still the same thing. Jamb has not sent the update of a new course to the school so that your new course would start appearing. Finally, if you did the change of institution very well, then you shouldn’t bother much about confirmation.
You may be wondering, how long does it take for Jamb to send my details to the new school I filled in my change of institution? Less than a week under normal circumstances. It could also take more time.
Hope you are cool with the answers above. Feel free to ask your own question using the comment box.
