What is JAMB CAPS Portal Really about?

Before going into details about JAMB CAPS 2021 Update, 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 ‘market place’ in the JAMB portal 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:

  • Opportunities for candidates to confirm provisional admissions thus eliminating cases of candidates abandoning admissions;
  • Market place to enable institutions source candidates from the available pool based on various criteria such as JAMB score, State, Local Government and even gender of the candidates
  • The requirement for all awaiting O/L results candidates to upload their results into JAMB portal before being considered for admission
  • Admissions can be processed in batches as well as instantaneously with candidates being able to check their admission status at any point in time on the JAMB portal.
