Jamb Caps Portal Reopens for 2020/2021 Admission

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has equipped all applicants with a portal to upload their results on Jamb Caps and access the list of shortlisted applicants. The committee stressed that all admissions processes must go through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS); only then will the admissions process be accepted.

This was presented during an interview by the Chief Registrar of the JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, in Abuja.


The committee has introduced a specific provision that the board will accept only eligible applicants recommended by their institutions for admission.

He indicated that most institutions, especially private, had initiated the admission process.

However, the registrar, on the other hand, acknowledged that federal universities have yet to be completely jumpstarted from the process since they are yet to conclude admissions for the previous year.

Professor Oloyede also said: “You should consider applying to other universities besides federal.”, the polytechnics and colleges of education have not been affected by the strike, and the Colleges stayed in session to learn around the COVID pandemic.
