What Does CAPS Stand For?

CAPS stands for “Central Admission Processing System“. From that, you can understand that JAMB is trying to simplify or ease the process you can go through your JAMB journey.

This means you wouldn’t have to go through different sources to do some JAMB-related problems. All you have to do is “check your caps” and you are good to go.

You would hear more of that sentence. Keep your ear out for it. “CHECK YOUR CAPS“. It makes sense when you know the full meaning.

Technology does make things easier and JAMB is not getting left behind. Whether it’s a Polytechnic or a University, you can be sure of an open and accountable process from JAMB towards your cause.

Let’s talk about some of the other features of JAMB CAPS.
