JAMB CAPS Accept or Reject Admission

What is JAMB CAPS?

This acronym stands for Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System (CAPS). It is a platform created to ensuring 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.
