What You Can Do Immediately on Your CAPS

On checking your JAMB CAPS, you will have access to the following facilities. Below are their meanings and how they can be of help.

My Profile: Your basic bio-data will be displayed here, including your name, gender, date of birth, state of origin, and UTME score.

My O’Level: This shows if your O’Level results were truly uploaded by the CBT center you used.

Admission Status: This is where you will see the school that offers (or will offer) you admission. There, you’ll accept or reject the offer.

Marketplace: If your main proposed school refuses to give you admission, JAMB may present you with a few other institutions with available spaces. Then, you’re to accept or reject such an open offer in the marketplace.

Transfer Approval: Here is a place to know if your proposed first-choice institution is trying to offer you a new course. If you accept, you will be offered the new course. If otherwise, you will remain with the old one. And your chance in the old one may not be that broad. 


In order to streamline the application process for admission into Nigeria’s higher institutions, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) developed the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) platform.

In addition to this, it guarantees that the admissions process is of a very high standard, transparent, and credible.

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) streamlines the admissions process, addresses the challenges associated with the manual approach, restores the autonomy of tertiary institutions regarding admissions, focuses on candidates and empowers them with information on available institutions and programs, expands admission opportunities, eliminates multiple admissions, and provides data that is easily retrievable.

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is expected to include a “marketplace” in the JAMB portal where institutions can go to request students in Nigeria who meet their cut-off points.

Because of the way the system is set up, institutions can only accept applicants who match their minimum requirements.

If a candidate fails to meet the cut-off mark, admission will be denied regardless of the candidate’s connection.


JAMB CAPS automates the process, and other innovations are being introduced as well. These are some examples:

  • Possibilities for candidates to confirm provisional admissions, hence eradicating instances of candidates abandoning admissions;
  • A marketplace that enables institutions to source students from the accessible pool depending on numerous parameters such as JAMB score, state and local government, and even the gender of the individuals
  • All candidates expecting O/L results must upload their results to the JAMB portal in order to be considered for admission.
  • Admissions can be processed in batches and in real-time, with candidates able to check their admission status on the JAMB portal at any time
  • Some institutions may not publish the list of candidates admitted into their various programs on their portal or notice board. So, admission seekers are advised to check JAMB CAPS to track their admission status continually.


PLEASE NOTE: Once you ACCEPT the admission, your admission quest is over, as you will no longer be available for other schools’ admission consideration.

On the other hand, if you REJECT the admission, you become available to other schools with free admission slots for admission consideration.
