Topic 1: What is Jamb Caps?

As it was mentioned earlier, the word CAPS is an abbreviation for JAMB Central Admission Processing System.

This is a central Jamb portal to submit, verify and consolidate aspirants’ and candidates’ information for seamless accessibility. Each candidate during Jamb exam registration is given a profile on Jamb CAPS.

That is where he or she will be accessing, checking, and printing his or her documents.

It is the chain that connects each Jamb candidate to Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB).

So if you are registered by Jamb, you should have a personal profile on the Jamb portal which is the same thing as Jamb CAPS.

You are expected to keep checking the Jamb portal or Caps for updates from Jamb as that is where you will be notified when you are offered admission into your preferred university of choice.

As a matter of fact, your university may not release her admission list on their portal. But on Jamb Caps? You will always find it there. So Jamb CAPs come first before your University.

Topic 3: How can I Upload my O level or SSCE Results on Jamb Caps?

Congratulations on being able to access your jamb Caps. However, you cannot upload your Jamb O level result in yourself for the time being and as of writing this post.

Maybe in the future, Jamb may enable that. In other words, print out your O-Level or SSCE result and take along a pin checker for them to confirm it online. These are the full things you will take along:

  1. Visit a Jamb office/Jamb Registration center. Not café or business center, please.
  2. You will need:
  3. O-level or SSCE Result
  4. Your email address (the one connected to your Jamb profile)
  5. Jamb Profile code

When you get there, request to upload your O-level result and they will help. It is supposedly free, but go with some money, let’s say up to 2000N. Nigerian officials can come up with some ridiculous fees.

Topic 4: How can I check my admission status on Jamb Caps?

Done with uploading your SSCE Result? Great! Now you have to stick to Jamb and your school News on whether they have started giving admission to students or not.

So in this process, you will need to be checking your Jamb profile, again and again, to see if they have offered you admission.

To always check your Jamb admission status, you do not need to go-to a café or accredited center.

Plus Jamb admission simply means your school admission, if you are given admission on Jamb Caps, it simply means Jamb has also given you admission.

Here are their meanings:

  • NOT ADMITTED: It can mean two things, either your preferred school of choice has not send the list of their admitted students to Jamb or they have sent it but do not qualify, hence, you are not chosen.
  • RECOMMENDED: You preferred school of choice has chosen you but Jamb is reviewing it in compliance to your O-level and other things
  • ADMISSION IN PROGRESS: Close enough, but not final. This simply means your school have chosen you, but Jamb is yet to consider you because of some issues like female ratio, admission quota, wrong O-level etc. in most cases, 99% of people with Admission In progress always ends up getting admission. So relax, your good news is on its way.
