You can also correct your Bio-data, which includes your name, date of birth, gender, State, and Local Government of origin.

The process costs N2,500 only (excluding the service charge by an accredited centre and can only be processed online, just like every other board process.

Before you proceed to do that, please make sure you do the following;

  • Be sure of the Course/Institution you would like to make changes to. Verify if the course is available in the school using the JAMB Brochure.
  • Be sure that the school you are changing to does not usually have a cut-off mark higher than your score.
