It is very important that all successfully admitted candidates indicate their choice, of either acceptance or rejection of admission online and timely to enable the processing of their admission by JAMB and the academic institution that offered the admission.
WHAT IS JAMB CAPS
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System (CAPS), which is known as JAMB Caps, is majorly aimed towards ensuring quality control, transparency, and credibility of the admission process for all candidates, seeking admission into any Nigerian University, Polytechnics, and College of Education.
CAPS is expected to make provision for a ‘market place’ in the JAMB official website, where all Nigerian tertiary institutions can go and ‘request for students in Nigeria who score their cut off points.’
You should take note that the system is built in such a way, that academic institutions can only admit those who meet their cut off points.
If a candidate fails to meet the cut off mark of the school they select as their first choice during JAMB Registration, that student would certainly be denied admission irrespective of the candidate’s connection, or money paid to any person.
