How To Change JAMB Subject Combination After Registration 2024

During JAMB registration, some applicants do make a lot of mistakes. And one of the mistakes is a wrong subject combination in JAMB. This is an issue that can affect your admission to any tertiary institution in Nigeria.

So, after the mistake has been made during UTME registration, questions like “can I change my subject combination after registration?” come up. This article will answer that question and give you a solution to it.


You can change your JAMB subject combination after you have registered for UTME. JAMB even confirmed it on Twitter when responding to an applicant who had an issue like this. According to JAMB, this can only be done before the exam, and the closing date for this year’s change of subject combination has not been specified.

However, after the exam has been conducted, you can’t change your subject combination rather it is advisable to change to a course that agrees with your combination. What this means is that If you want to study Medicine, and you choose English, Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics as your combination, this is the wrong subject combination for most schools that offer MBBS.

In all, you are advised to go to the nearest JAMB CBT centre to either request a change of subject combination or a change of course form. So, change to Engineering courses or science courses that agree with your combination. This will help you not to miss the admission for that year.

I must let you know that even if you score 370 and have a wrong subject combination, you won’t be offered admission.
