Meaning of JAMB CAPS – Central Admission Processing System. The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has reportedly launched a new System of Admissions – The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) which is geared towards ensuring quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process.
According to a participant, the new policy 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.’
These institutions will write to JAMB to request for the students and also give them (students) three days to respond. Also, only three universities can request for a candidate if the policy is adopted.
The new policy is also expected to allow institutions in Nigeria peg their cut off point after meeting with their respective senates.
