About CAPS- The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is geared towards ensuring quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process. 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 in a way 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 offer of admission.
