JAMB Organizes CAPS Sensitization Programme For Candidates




The Joint admission and matriculation board is organizing a forum for all 2017 candidates. The purpose is to sensitize the candidates on how the newly introduced Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) works.

The Board in the discharge of its mandate has developed the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) to automate the admission exercise starting with 2017 2018 Academic Session.
CAPS will, among other benefits:

-Refocus JAMB on its founding ideals as a Clearing House for the Admissions Process

-Ensure operational efficiency

-Promote transparency, accountability, inclusiveness and equity

-Restore the autonomy of the tertiary institutions with respect to admission

-Expand admission opportunities

-Make candidates the Central Focus of the Admission Exercise, and

-Provide credible and easily accessible Data for Research & Planning.

CAPS introduces some innovations to achieve the above objectives, particularly the active participation of candidates in the Admissions Exercise. It is in the light of this, that the Board provides below the Step-by-Step Process Flow of the Admission Exercise for the education and information of general public and the stakeholders, particularly the Candidates.
