CAPS Doesn't Show O'level Exams Number? Reasons/Solutions

Seeing The JAMB registration Number is Normal and Correct
JAMB logo
I just addressed this confusion in my office. A student walked in to ask: "why was my O'level showing the JAMB registration number instead of the O'level Registration Number?"

If you don't know what we're talking about yet, candidates should check if their O'level result is truly uploaded during JAMB registration by the CBT centre. And if you'd just returned to upload awaiting results, you may still want to confirm if your results are duly active on the JAMB portal.

In fact, if you don't have your O'level results uploaded to the JAMB portal, I can assure you, 100%, that you won't be offered admission this year even if you score 100% in your post UTME. See how to check. Not yet there? See how to upload.

Back to the question at hand.
This is a student's CAPS O'level results with a blank exam number

After some candidates had checked their status for O'level results on the JAMB portal, they were greeted with their results subjects and grades as correctly as uploaded. However, instead of seeing the NECO, WEAC, NABTEB or NBAIS registration number, what they saw instead was JAMB/UTME registration number - leaving the space for the O'level result number empty.

Some even saw their O'level exam numbers but with some mistakes. Such as the omission of a digit or so.

Here is the question: What is wrong? Is this normal? Is this what everybody's CAPS page is like? Is there anything to do in order to correct or include the exam number of the O'level result?

Seeing the JAMB Registration Number is Normal and Correct

Generally, JAMB will only display candidates' UTME registration numbers instead of WAEC or any other O'level. Only a few CBT centres take the pain to include the exam number.

This may be confusing though. But don't be.

JAMB is only interested in the grades of the required subjects for your proposed course. They, as well, want to know whether it's WAEC, NECO, NABTEB or NBAIS. They don't want more.

Hence, once your result and grades are all clearly updated, there is no need to be worried about the non-inclusion of the SSCE exam number. It won't affect your admission in any way.

If you still want to please yourself to the maximum or you don't feel safe with that error or omission, you can return to another or same CBT centre and request them to reupload the result for you. This time, be sure things show correctly

Some CBT Centres Only Uploaded 5 Required Subjects

This is a similar issue. As a matter of fact, JAMB trusts its CBT centres. That's why they don't allow cafes to upload O'level results for admission seekers. They believe CBT centres will NOT enter grades to manipulate the admission processes. CBT centres are aware of the consequences if they do.

And in the same vein, the CBT centre can just upload only the 5 required subjects in your O'level instead of all the subjects. For example, a CBT centre can upload Maths, English, Chemistry, Physics and Biology for a Nursing candidate instead of all her 9 subjects.

In this case, nothing is wrong with that. Those are the subjects JAMB and schools want to reckon with.

Just like in the case of blank exams number or errors in the number, if you insist you want all the subjects to appear, you can return to the CBT centre or the one around you for a re-upload. Be sure you let them know that you want all subjects to appear.
