Jamb Warns Candidate Seeking Admission: Candidates seeking admission into various tertiary institutions in the country have again been warned to desist from backdoor admissions which are admissions given to candidates without recourse to the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) introduced by JAMB.
The Hon. Minister of State for Education, Dr. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, handed down this warning at a virtual 2020 Policy Meeting on Admissions to tertiary institutions.
It added that admissions conducted outside CAPS could prevent ‘innocent candidates’ from taking part in the mandatory National Youth Service Corps.
He also noted that CAPS was implemented in order to engender fairness and transparency in the conduct of admissions.
The Minister said the flagrant abuse or jettisoning of CAPS endangers the system, jeopardizes the future of candidates, and compromises the integrity of the admission process.
He pointed out that CAPS, an automated platform developed by JAMB, was designed to enhance transparency and ensure inclusiveness in the conduct of admissions by tertiary institutions.
Dr. Nwajiuba said, “Permit me to also restate that no admission offer should be made to any candidate outside CAPS.
Those institutions offering admissions outside CAPS are endangering the system and confusing the candidates.
The discipline imposed by the system makes for a healthy and transparent process which, as we know, is the hallmark of the Buhari administration.”
The Minister finally commended the Governing Board of JAMB, Management, and Staff for the uncommon transformations in the Board to the admiration of all and pledges the support of the Ministry towards supporting the board in its Giant strides.

“Institutions cannot publish any admission list which has not been approved on CAPS. Therefore, publishing an admission list, prior to its processing on CAPS, is improper and a source of confusion as many of such admissions were found to be inappropriate and had to be reversed.
“The board wishes to disassociate itself from such as it is a flagrant abuse of the automated Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS), which is the only credible avenue for admission into undergraduate programmes of all tertiary institutions in the country.
“Institutions which offer admission outside CAPS do so to avoid equitable and just process which CAPS enforces.
“It would be recalled that the board had announced that it would be stopping illegitimate admissions from 2017. “The board states unequivocally that any candidate who accepts an offer of admission outside CAPS does so at his or her own risk.
Please be careful about the way “Jamb Warns Candidate Seeking Admission” because many have been giving admission illegally without recourse to the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) which is now affecting them during NYSC Registration.
