About JAMB CAPS Portal

Before going into details about how to create a profile on JAMB CAPS, please note. JAMB CAPS is an abbreviation representing the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board Central Admission Processing System.

The platform was created by JAMB to automate the admissions process into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It also ensures quality control, transparency, and credibility of the admission process.

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is expected to make provision for a ‘marketplace’ in the JAMB portal. It is where institutions can go and ‘request for students in Nigeria who score their cut-off points.

The system is such that institutions can only admit those who meet their cut-off points. If a candidate fails to meet the cut-off mark, that student would certainly be denied admission irrespective of the candidate’s connection.


JAMB CAPS does not only automates the process but a number of other innovations are also being introduced. And these include:
