The Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) is a platform developed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to streamline the admission process for candidates seeking admission into Nigerian universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education. To access the CAPS portal, candidates must log in using their JAMB registration number.
After the introduction of the JAMB CAPS portal in 2017, a lot of candidates have been finding it difficult to login to the JAMB CAPS portal on www.caps.jamb.gov.ng.
What is JAMB Portal Used for
Checking of Results
One of the major uses of the JAMB portal is for checking examination results. After the examination, candidates can log in to the JAMB portal to check their scores. The portal will display the candidate’s score, subject by subject, and overall performance. The results can be printed or downloaded for future reference. This feature on the portal has made it easier for candidates to access their results without having to visit a physical office.
The JAMB portal is also used for the admission process into tertiary institutions. After the results of the entrance examination are released, candidates can log in to the portal to check if they have been offered admission into their institution of choice. The portal also provides information on the deadline for acceptance of offers, and candidates can also print their admission letters from the portal. This feature has made the admission process less cumbersome and more efficient.
The JAMB portal also allows candidates to manage their profiles. Candidates can log in to the portal to update their personal information, including their email address, phone number, and other important details. The portal also provides a platform for candidates to apply for a change of course or institution. This feature has made it easier for candidates to make changes to their application without having to visit a physical office.
