How To Go About Correction Of Data/Change of Course and Institution 2017
Upon arrival at Jamb Office Ikoyi, I was shocked to see a lot
of people there also for correction, as I entered I was hearing
a Lady there giving information telling students to go and pay
at the bank cause online payment was down. She was also
talking of some students that had gone to pay for 2016
Correction of Data instead of 2017 Correction of data, so they
had to pay twice.
N.B:- 2016 correction of data is the one you find on the home
page when you log on to that one states you
have to pay N2500 for each correction. Please don’t pay for
this one.
How To Get the 2017 correction of data page
Step 1- Log into your jamb profile
Step 2- open menu in your jamb profile
Step 3-Click Register,under register a drop box appear where
you’ll see UTME correction of data
Step 4- Click it and follow the steps to pay either online or
We were told there to pay at the bank cause online payment
was down.
After paying N2500 at the bank with bank charge N100 Naira,
we returned to jamb office Ikoyi and they changed it for us.
Note: You can equally do this at any accredited JAMB CBT
You can change your NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, STATE,
INSTITUTIONS, COURSE etc with that one time fee of N2500
N.B- Make sure you go and do the Correction of data yourself
Jamb office also charged N300 naira, so make sure you go
with enough money.
Hope with this information I’ve been able to help someone,till
next time.
Oh and one more thing rumor has it correction of data ends
28th, so hurry now.
