Solution To Wrong JAMB Subject Combination

Like I mentioned earlier, JAMB has stopped the correction of the wrong subject combination. This means, once you make a mistake in your subject arrangement when registering for JAMB in 2023/2024

That mistake cannot be corrected. But I have cooked up a correction tactics for this, it may be a little inconveniencing, but I think it is worth the try.

The only solution as at now to correct mistake in JAMB subject combination, is to change the course you initially applied for to a course that will accept this new subject arrangement.

This of course, has its disadvantages which may include…

  • You may not like the courses that would accept the combination of result you mistakenly registered.
  • The school you want to study in, may not have the course you want to change to
  • Or, you may want to study the course you already registered for so bad, that no other option would be good for you.

But unless, you are willing to sacrifice rewriting another JAMB next year, you will have to highly consider changing your course.
