When the JAMB results are released, you will be able to change your institution and course of study.
It is not feasible to apply for a change of course or institution of choice through the JAMB using a phone or in an internet cafe. To apply for JAMB data correction in your JAMB profile, you must go to the JAMB CBT center.
Undergraduates are students enrolled in universities, polytechnics, or educational colleges. Students who have been accepted can use the JAMB profile portal to ask for changes to their JAMB data.
You can change your institution, course, name, gender, and LGA via the JAMB portal login on your phone or at a cybercafé.

JAMB Course Change
The JAMB Change of Course form allows you to change your JAMB course in your profile.
After their JAMB results are released, some students may need to change their major. This shifting process is required in order to change to a less competitive course.
It is also important to change courses if your preferred institution gives you admission to a different department.
JAMB Name Change

Several students commit spelling errors when registering for JAMB. Also, some students’ JAMB profile names do not correspond to the names on their WAEC or NECO scores. Individuals must apply for a name change using the JAMB portal.

After the JAMB Change of Course and Institution, I received several inquiries from students who had recently completed a JAMB Change of Course or Institution regarding their inability to register for their institution of choice Post UTME tests.
Your modifications on the JAMB portal will take a few days to a week to reflect on your profile and register you for the Post UTME screening.
The good news is that Nigerian universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education will always make sure that all students can register for their screening process.
