Cost of Correction of Date of Birth on JAMB

Changing your date of birth on the JAMB portal costs a small amount. Candidates seeking a change of birth correction must present supporting documentation (a birth certificate or a birth declaration) to support their claims.

In addition, an indemnity form will be downloaded, printed, filled out, and sent with the accompanying documentation to the Candidates Institution for approval (Birth certificate or Birth Declaration).

The JAMB application fee for a change of date of birth on JAMB is fixed at ₦2,500 only.

How long does it take for JAMB change of date of birth to reflect?

The timeline in which changes in date of birth occur on the JAMB portal varies, largely dependent on individual circumstances and process efficiency. Typically, after the data correction (date of birth) has been successfully carried out, the changes may take a few hours to a few days to reflect on the system.

However, in some cases, the reflection time might extend to a week or longer due to procedural delays or technical glitches. Hence, students must make required corrections well ahead of any impending deadlines to ensure accurate records.

Additionally, students should regularly check their profiles to confirm the changes have been effected, and if not, relevant authorities should be immediately contacted for rectification. Furthermore, students must remember that this process comes with a fee, and the correction is allowed only once per candidate’s data.

How to Correct JAMB Birth Dates

Fortunately, you can change your JAMB date of birth at a CBT location or the JAMB office. Follow the steps below to do so:

  1. Go to the JAMB office that is closest to you. You may need to make an appointment beforehand.
  2. You can also walk into any licensed CBT centre in your area without making an appointment.
  3. Include a certified birth certificate or a court affidavit. Make sure the documents have the correct date on them. You can also bring your WAEC certificate, which has the same birth date as you.
  4. Request that your birth date be changed on JAMB.

This could set you around N3,500 or perhaps less.

JAMB Correction of Date of Birth Deadline

Changing the birth date on the Jamb portal can be completed after the exam and the results have been released. You can ignore them for the time being till after your examinations.

It’s crucial to remember that not all of these modifications are available immediately, and some will have to wait until much later. For example, JAMB Change of Course/Institution can only be done once the UTME results are verified.

Implications of Not Having a Correct Date of Birth

The JAMB Date of Birth is a crucial factor in admissions into any higher institution in Nigeria which requires JAMB. If JAMB’s date of birth is incorrect, it raises concerns about admissions. Why?

To begin, candidates’ dates of birth will appear on the JAMB result, whether it is an online printout (called notification of result) or the real JAMB result. The school might frown on this oversight because you’ll have to produce one of the two for admission.

Secondly, when you finish your academic programs at a university or polytechnic, your JAMB date of birth will be transmitted to NYSC for mobilization. The NYSC, on the other hand, permits potential serving corps members to amend their birth dates. This is permissible if the candidate is willing to adjust his or her biracial date.

Thirdly, schools will match the date of birth on your JAMB result to the one on your birth certificate or age declaration/court affidavit. Such schools will want to make sure that both are in sync.

Remember that your employer (government or private) may wish to double-check that the dates on your birth certificate and other papers match. Candidates can apply for a JAMB change of date of birth to update their birth date.

Processing will necessitate the submission of supporting documentation. An indemnity form will be downloaded, printed, filled out, and presented with accompanying documentation to the candidate institution for approval.
