The change of institution and course is introduced to enable JAMB candidates who already know their scores and have verified the cut-off mark of their choice institutions, and to make the necessary changes in their choice of course and institution relative to their UTME 2018 scores.

If you scored 180 in the JAMB 2018 UTME and you choose a competitive Institution like UNILORIN, UNIBEN, then you can now edit it to choose a less competitive one to increase your chances of admission. Or if you chose a popular/competitive course like Surgery and Medicine, Accounting, etc. And you scored 199 and below, then you really need to apply for change of course and/or institution.
