THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BUYING A JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE FORM

- Do not follow the crowd: If you want to study Nursing, go for it, don’t apply for Medicine/Surgery because all your friends want to be doctors. This is also an extension to finding your interests and passion. jamb result
- Is it really worth it? This is a question you should ask yourself. Find out if the change of course is actually necessary or not.
- Do your research: Do not go for a change of course if you have not gotten background information on the both courses- the former and the latter. Check if the course is in line with the subjects you wrote in your exam.

Regularly, most people complain of being given a different course from the one they applied for. This issue is not from JAMB but from the institution you applied for.
