JAMB Correction of Mistakes/Data 2022/2023 Portal, Date & Deadline

If you wish to do any JAMB correction, then here is a simple tutorial on how to log in to the JAMB correction of mistakes portal 2022 to carry out your JAMB correction of data 2022/2023.

One common thing in JAMB registration is making mistakes. It is fully understood that there’s no way such a number of candidates can apply for the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board exam without making a single mistake.

As such, JAMB has provided room for any candidate that made a mistake during the registration to apply for correction.

With the JAMB data correction portal, candidates can correct some of the mistakes or wrong information that they provided during JAMB registration.

When Will JAMB Correction of Mistakes Start for 2022?

The JAMB correction of data portal 2022 is opened for the 2022 candidates to carryout their corrections.

How Much is JAMB Correction of Data/Mistakes 2022?

Each data correction carried out on JAMB correction portal attracts a separate and non-refundable fee of two thousand five hundred Naira (N2,500).


Note: if you wish to repeat one correction more than once, then you have to pay separately for each of them.

For example, if you choose to apply for correction of name twice, you will be charged two thousand five hundred Naira (N2,500) for each of them, making it five thousand Naira (N5,000).

JAMB Mistakes that can be Corrected in 2022.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) only gives room for candidates to carry out the following changes to their information:

  • Change of Course/Institution
  • Change of Name
  • Change of DOB
  • Change of Gender
  • Change of State/L.G.A

Can someone change JAMB email?


Currently, candidates can change their JAMB email. But this process is technical and requires carefulness. See how to change JAMB email here

Candidates can also link their email to their JAMB profile that was created with NIN only. You can see how to link email to JAMB profile 2022 here.

Can someone change JAMB phone number?

Currently, there’s no idea if candidates can actually change their JAMB phone number as JAMB didn’t list that among the details that can be corrected. But we believe it is possible.

I used the same email address I registered with last year again this year. Do I have to link up a new email address to jamb for profile creation or still make use of the previously used email while linking it up?
