change of institution doesn’t reflect

I have received many questions on this issue affecting student and most of them cannot register for the post UTME of the school there have changed to. First of all I want you to know that JAMB will not send a list of students that chose a school to her until the change of institutions is closed.

However, if you do your change of institutions late, the school may know, especially if JAMB is sending lists of students to them in batches.

That’s why it is advisable to do your changes on time. However, that is not going to affect the decision of your school on your admission. Don’t panic.

If you intend to do change of institution/ course to a school form that is out, I advice you to do it on time so that your name will appear on the school portal to do registration. It used to take about 2-3 weeks to reflect in some schools before you can apply for the post UTME/screening form and some schools form last for about a month. Don’t delay your admission because of your procrastination.

Some candidates had issues with the reflection of their courses, some, institutions, and so on. As a result, there is a need to post fresh content to answer some disturbing questions. Here comes another: What Can I do If My Change of Institution Doesn’t Reflect?

There is a thing to know upfront before my recommendations.

Must your new school collect your registration details from JAMB before you register for her post UTME?

Some schools wait to collect your details from JAMB before they can allow you to register for their Post UTMEs. For some, no need to wait for JAMB updates before you can register. If you fall to the former, you must wait. If the latter, you can continue with your registration without expecting any reflection on the school portal first. That’s what I detailed in Guide 2 above.

My Recommendations If Change of Institutions/Courses Doesn’t Reflect On Time

Wait Until a Few Days to The Post UTME Closing Date.

Candidates asked this question when they’re eager to do their new schools’ post-UTMEs but find out it has not reflected on their portals. So, what do you do? You wait. Then, how long? Wait till a day or two before the closing day of your proposed school post UTME.

Some schools will not update their admission portal database until 24 hours or less to the closing date of their post UTME registrations. Candidates may be unnecessarily bothered. Yet, you must wait. It will eventually reflect unless the school aims to extend its post UTME registration deadlines.


  1. Check If You Meet the JAMB Cut Off Marks Announced

Some schools have announced 180 and above for their post UTMEs. Unfortunately, a few students rush to effect change on the JAMB portal without meeting up with this requirement. They just changed to the schools, perhaps, with the old knowledge of their previous cut-off marks or something related.

I had recently tried registering for a candidate for FUTA Post UTME. We waited for days to see his change of institution to reflect. But nothing until the post UTME was over. I had blamed the school for the omission before I noticed that the poor guy scored less than the cut-off mark announced by the university.

Meanwhile, the university would only ask JAMB to send details of applicants who met their cut-off marks of 180 and above. Nothing less!

  1. Check If You Chose The School Rightly – the First Choice?

Similar to number 2 above, some schools are not accepting 2nd choice candidates. A few students who had the knowledge that the school was used to accept 2nd choice might just change to them as the second institution not knowing that the policy has been changed to the first choice only.

Be sure you’re not making the same mistake.

If you’re choosing a school accepting first-choice candidates only as your own second-choice institution, your JAMB change will not reflect. If that school is in the second position, check the school post-UTME advert to see if they are opened to you. If not, that could be the reason why things are not reflecting.

  1. Check If the Post UTME is Not Closed

Sometimes you may be campaigning after the election.

Consider going back to the website page where the school announced the sales of the post UTME and the closing date for the form. See if the day has not passed. If it has, you shouldn’t expect the school to accept any further changes from JAMB.

Similarly, confirm if there is an announcement of the extension of the sales of the form. You may be reassured of further patience if the school extends things.

  1. Be Sure You Confirm If The School Shows on JAMB CAPS

Just recently, we have witnessed a series of issues with the JAMB change of institutions/courses. One of such is candidates changing and with confirmation slips given to them. But they get to know that the old institutions remain on the CAPS.

Under normal circumstances, once the changes are submitted and the confirmation slip printed, the new change first choice institution should be on your admission status on the JAMB CAPS. However, candidates check their CAPS to find out that the old first-choice institution is still there.

To solve this issue, you should write to JAMB support channels and make sure you attach the evidence of your changes (i.e confirmation slip).

Experience has shown that they will resolve these issues within two working days.
