    Hope am safe please??
    2).Do you have any idea when they will start giving the admission for the change of course applicants??

    1. 1. I don’t think that should be a problem. You will be considered for one of them(most likely the second one)
      2. They’ve started giving admission to those who applied for change of course, keep checking your JAMB CAPS portal.

    2. I applied for zoology too, my CAPS has not changed, but someone said he has seen people who have been given zoology since Saturday

  19. Aggregate scored,,, 58.625
    Course,,, History
    My ELDS….58.625…
    Benue state
    Should I wait or change course?

  20. You said we don’t need to Change d course on jamb website until wen admission has been given,wen admission has been given hw would u now accept it on caps??

    1. After you’ve been admitted on JAMB CAPS, go and change it on JAMB portal. Then, you can print your admission letter.

      I said so to avoid changing when you’re not sure you’ll be admitted.

        1. It reflects on your JAMB CAPS portal even without changing. Once you change on UI portal and you are admitted, your new course reflects and shows you’ve been offered admission.

          You can now change after accepting it on JAMB CAPS so that you can print your admission letter.

  21. i am a art student an i apply for law but i score 60.1250 but my cut off for law is 74p but all d course listed is science course and i did not do any science related course if i apply will i be given admission and it is said that we should pick according to courses in 0’level (2)when will those who apply for change of course be given admission

  32. Please I scored 64.125 as aggregate. Can I apply for change of course?
    How can one apply for change of course? The website.

  33. Does dis mean dat people who had 50% nd above nd didnt meet cut off will nt be considered for admission anymore

  34. plz my aggregate score is 55.25% and i applied for nursing, can i change course or is dere any chances dat i will b given another course?

  35. my agg is 65.375 and cut off is 65.13 studying economics but my admission status is still showing not yet admitted should I do change of course

      1. So does that mean that art students will not be able to do change of course coz i cant find any art course in ui post abt coc

        1. Something like that. The reason for that is that more science students are admitted yearly. So, art departments get filled up faster.

          Same thing happened last year.

        2. Hi, please I checked my portal for d change of course… I’m in art class.. and I want to change my course from law to sociology but I didn’t see it on d list… dre is, in fact no course for art students, could there be a problem?

  36. My aggregate is 71.375 and the cut off mark for communication and language arts is 72.75… Please do you think I can be given another course without having to change course seeing as there are only science courses up here

    1. Even though it’s close, the chances is low. Cut off mark is the aggregate of the last candidate they want to admit in that department.

      If you find any course you can change to, please do.

  37. Pls my questions are:
    1.I chose medicine and I had 72 whereas medicine is 76.5,Will I be considered for any of the courses in the college of medicine?Or I should apply for coc.
    2.On the coc form there is vet. medicine,If I apply for it,will I be able to transfer to medicine in the 2nd year since the subject to do is the same as that of medicine during the first year?Thanks.

    1. 1. You may still he given another course in the college of Medicine but the chance of being being is low.

      2. You can change to Vet Medicine but crossing is not feasible but possible. I mean crossing from any faculty other than College of Medicine to Medicine is not really an official thing, you may need to use connection.

  38. Bro, well-done. Please my younger sister scored 53.8 in d post utme applied for medicine & surgery, can she change to chemistry since she didn’t meet up with the cut off mark and what is the assurance that she will be admitted on merit. Thanks

        1. Please I scored 56.125 as aggregate and I applied for English and literature pls can I do change of course to education and political science

  39. pls I want to change course..if ui want to give me another course Nd dey c av changed course..will dey consider me fr d course dey want to give me or d course I changed to

  40. Bro. i think if we log in to our portal, mbbs guys with high score like 74 even after they change to botany, they might still be given physiology maybe just for like 5 candidates only,
    I want to know if you have seen a case like that

    1. Some MBBS guys with close cut off aggregates last year were given other courses in the College of Medicine(they didn’t apply for Change of course).

      However, some were not given anything. Those that had close courses but changed course were given the course they changed to.

  41. I chose English and literature didn’t meet cut off for merit and elds. I am from a northern state. Kindly advice me please

  42. What if u are 0.5marks below the cut off mark? Is there any hope of admission? And if I apply for change of course will it affect the former admission??

  43. Please sir, I have 52.75 as aggregate score ..i choose botany which is 51.62..nd I have not been given admission… ND my requirements (I. e my waec results) is okay… Plus can I still change the course

  44. Pls sir am an art student and i didnt meet the cut off mark for law because i had 72 in post utme and 67 as my aggregate. Pls can i still change to political science and b guaranteed admission?

  45. Assuming somebody has an assurance that he will be admitted for a particular course with lower cut off mark but still doubting and he goes ahead for a change of course now will this thing not counter themselves and geopadize the admission also which course will they offer those who miss law narrowly

  46. my course aggregate is 70 english nd literature,am having 67pls will ui give me another course or should i go for coc,pls are they still going to realise arts courses for coc cus am only seeing science courses there
    thank u

    1. They aren’t going to release art courses again. Those are the only ones that are available. Something similar happened last year too.

      If you have any course you can change to there, go for the change of course.

  47. Pls what can i do mr sonneye saheed.pls hw can u help me out for god sake. i had 60.625 nd am an art student but i chose edu/irs but d cut off is 62 but among d course listed for change of course, there is no course i can change to because science nd only one social science course which is geography is listed.help me out sir.

  48. Sorry please I applied for English and literature. Didn’t meet the cutoff for merit and elds though I am from a northern state. Now I have gone to change my course on jamb to Russian language. Would I still be considered. Please I await your reply

        1. One more last question sir. I chose eng\literature. Didn’t meet the cut off for merit but I am from kebbi the cut off is 70 but I have 54.125. I decided to change to Russian on jamb. Will I still be considered that’s my question

        2. Cut off mark for Russian is 54.25, the fact that you are from ELDS doesn’t change anything.

          “Admission through change of course is based on MERIT”. Catchment area will not be considered.

  49. Sir I had 55.125 as aggregate.. Can I change to zoology despite the fact that I didn’t have up to 65 to b able to change course.

  50. Pls i want to change to either art or education course but among the change of course u ave listed,am nt seeing any art or education subject.pls i need ur advice nd i scored 60.625 as my aggregate score

      1. For someone who scored 66.125 and so missed nursing cut of 70.5 for nursing. What is the chances of changing to biochemistry which is 63.5

        1. Biochemistry will not be available on the change of course form. UI may however give or not give you another health-related course like Biochemistry, Physiology. It’s a matter of chance.

  51. Law is 74.75 i got 71.75 among the courses that are made available for change of course purpose art subjects are not there can i change to another course which is not in the list eg library arcival and info studies

  52. my agrregate score is 51.625 and the cut off mark is 66.25 for political science can i still apply for a change of course to adult education.

  53. Please I had 66 and I choose Mbbs initially…… Change of course forms is not out yet how will I change before admission list is released or if I change at jamb portal will it reflects at the school

    1. The change of course form will be released on UI undergraduate admission portal. Don’t make any changes on JAMB portal yet as it won’t change anything on UI portal.

      Change on UI portal, wait till you are admitted for the new course and then you can change on JAMB portal.

  54. When will the courses I can change to be available?

    You said admission (for another related course) can be given to those who initially chose medicine but did not get up to the cut off mark,if a student who would have been given such admission changes course when the form is out what course would the person be given-that which would have been given or the other which the student newly applied for?

  55. Hey, I want to have a change of course to one under faculty of education. But I am 1.5 marks below the course I want. Would I still be picked?

  56. Uhmm….z it sure for all students that initially chose medicine to get admission without change of course…..and based on ur experience, is physiology usually part of the courses that u can change to??

    1. It varies with department and also varies with the performance of student that chose each course. From the cut off marks, you can predict which department is least competitive.

      As for the number admitted, it varies as each department have their own admission quota.

  57. Pls i choose edu/i.r.s nd i got 60.625,but d cut off mark is 62. Can i change my course to only I.R.S When d change of course form is out because the cut off mark for islamic studies is 60.5.
    i need ur advice pls.

    1. You may be given and may not be given. People who choose Medicine and didn’t meet the cut are usually the ones given another course like Physiotherapy, Biochemistry, Physiology e.t.c. It is not guaranteed you’ll be given.

      So, I’ll advise you to apply for change of course when it is out.

    1. ELDS cut off mark is for candidates from states usually in the Northern part of Nigeria e.g Kaduna, Kastina, Sokoto, Benue , Borno e.t.c

      If you are not from any of the ELDS, then you have to meet merit to gain admission.

  58. i got 57 in my post jamb i wanted to study english lang and lit, but the cut off mark is 70 pls which other can i change to when d change of course form is out

  59. plx sociology is 64.75,and i had 63.625……is it possible am giving anoda course……..without change of course,and will my name come out 1st list,if i am giving another course

    1. With your experience, can you make a list of courses in the Faculty of Arts that are likely to be listed on the website for change of course in UI?

      1. Thanks.
        That means I’ll need to be very fast with the changing.
        How long more will it take before this comes out and does it come out before any of the admission list comes out?

      2. I have a subject combination of Eng,Literature,Government, CRS. My aggregate is 65…what course can I possibly change to…i need an advice pls

        1. Which course did you chose initially? Wait for the change of course form to be released, then you’ll find a course that matches your subject combination.

          But, some courses you can change to are:

          Political Science
          Religious studies
          Theatre art e.t.c

          Anyone you meet the cut off mark. But, like I said, wait for the Change of course form to be released.

        2. I chose English language and literature initially but my aggregate of the seems to be lower than the cut off mark(70..)

          what about those Education courses… will they be available to change to?

          I heard that admission for COC is based on merit not first come first serve… pls confirm this

  60. I choose EKSU as 2nd choice but they don’t regard 2nd choice anymore. They have started releasing admission list(they are currently on the 2nd) can I change back?

  61. The cut-off for medicine and surgery is 76.5. I had 70.8 . Dentistry and pharmacy are 70 and 61 respectively. I wish to change to either, advise.

    1. That’s the problem. You won’t be allowed to change into any of those courses when the change of course form is released. Both courses will not be included.

      You may try to go to UI admission office to see if you can get some help.
