How to Log Into JAMB CAPS on Phone, Computer: Step By Step Guide

JAMB logo
Let's get something clear. All admission seekers must regularly log on to JAMB CAPS to see the state of things. I explained these CAPS messages, their meanings together with what to do next previously.

Candidates will need to log into CAPS to know if their O'level, NCE, ND, IJMB or  JUPEB results were truly uploaded to the JAMB portal. They need to log in to see if schools had offered them admissions or not. They need to check if all things are set for his admission this year.

The above and a few other reasons are why you should learn to log in to your JAMB CAPS.

But there are few things to know as well. Can you log into to CAPS with your mobile phone? Do you need to visit a cafe to do that? Do you need the help of a CBT centre for activities on CAPS? Can you just use your personal computer (laptop) to access it?

All these questions will be answered as well.

Let's take the questions first.



You can use your phones including any type of Android smartphones out there to access your JAMB CAPS. You can as well use the service of a cafe, CBT centre or use a laptop of a brother of a friend. MY thought is that if you need to access CAPS to regularly mentor things, you may need to get a smartphone for that. Visiting a cafe or a CBT centre for that may cost so much before you're finally offered admission.

Another misconception is that you don't have to have a permanent place to log into your CAPS. Some candidates believe they can only use their personal phones or the one on which the phone number they used for JAMB is. No! You can use a friend's phone or laptop to log on and check your CAPS.

Now, the real deal.

JAMB CAPS is the Same as JAMB Efacility

Most candidates believe JAMB CAPS has a dedicated website different from the efacility they usually use. The website they claimed was http://caps.jamb.gov.ng/. The thing is, JAMB is longer using that to give access to CAPS. The same function is now accessible through your regular efacility. Efacility has many things to offer you. Among these is access to the JAMB CAPS.

To access your efacility, visit https://www.jamb.org.ng/efacility../. There, you will log in with your JAMB email and its password. Forget your password?

I had covered how to reset your profile password.

Then, I gave you the newly recommended method JAMB gave to help you if you can't reset the profile or CAPS password.

Therefore, when you hear "JAMB profile", "JAMB efacility" or "JAMB CAPS", they literarily mean the same thing.


Enter JAMB Profile and Proceed to JAMB CAPS

As soon as log into your profile, you should use the method below to check you JAMB CAPS.
  1. On your profile dashboard, scroll up to locate "Check Admission Status"
  2. On the next page, choose your year of admission and enter your JAMB registration number (if it's not already there).
  3. On this page, you can Access CAPS (by the left) or Check Admission Status (by the right). Since we're talking of CAPS checking now, click on the former.
  4. On the next page, you will see "welcome" at the top of the page and other facilities by the left of the page.

NOTE: Those using phone should use Chrome here to see other facilities. Then, make sure you set your page to a desktop view. To do that, click on the three dots at the top or bottom corner of your browser. Then, choose the Desktop view. Your left side of the "welcome" will appear.

What You Can Do Immediately on Your CAPS

Checking your JAMB CAPS, you will have access to the following facilities. Below are their meanings and how they can be of help.
  1. My Profile: This will show your basic bio-data including name, gender, date of birth, state of origin and UTME score.
  2. My O'Level: This shows if your O'level results were truly uploaded by the CBT centre you used.
  3. Admission Status: This is where you will see the school that offers (or will offer) you admission. There, you'll accept or reject the offer. See Institution and Course Not Showing (Blank) in CAPS? Reasons and Solutions
  4. Marketplace: If your main proposed school refuses to give you admission, JAMB may present you with a few other institutions with available spaces. Then, you're to accept or reject such an open offer in the marketplace. See What JAMB and Schools Do When You Reject Admission on CAPS
  5. Transfer Approval: Here is a place to know if your proposed first choice institution is trying to offer you a new course. If you accept, you will be offered the new course. If otherwise, you will remain in the old one. And your chance in the old one may not be that broad. See Is it Advisable to Accept Another Course Than The One I Applied For?
