2021 UTME: The Importance of Making Change of Course/Institution Accessible to Students

Following low scores of by many candidates in the 2021 Unified Tertiary Institution Matriculation Examination (UTME), several candidates are beginning to make for change of institutions. However, the link for change of course for the 2021 UTME is not yet available on the EFACILITY portal of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB). This is making many of the candidates jittery.

To douse the tension the board should open the portal for change of institution and make it easily accessible to the students. With the current security situation of Nigeria, restricting change of courses/institution to JAMB offices and Computer Based Test (CBT) centres may be counter-productive. The fear of kidnapping should be the beginning of wisdom

Admission racketeers may also cash in on the situation to scam unsuspecting students. I have heard of men that promise to facilitate admission to state universities for candidates that had low scores in 2021 UTME. If such students do not go out of their domains, they may not encounter such scammers.

Touts may also use the current situation to promise an upgrade in JAMB scores. In the process of looking for CBT centres, candidates may fall into the hands of such unscrupulous elements. Nobody wants a repeat of the Umoren saga.

JAMB should make correction of data accessible to candidates to keep our children safe
