JAMB Profile/CAPS is Blank with "Welcome", Solutions!

JAMB logo

This guide offers solutions for accessing CAPS on your JAMB profile, suggesting options like using a computer, switching to Google Chrome, trying an Android phone if using an iPhone, or switching to desktop view on your browser to see beyond the "WELCOME" message.

This post will guide you on while your JAMB profile is showing Welcome only when you try to access CAPS on your phone, what you're doing wrong, and what to do to see other available content and links.

It's time to check JAMB CAPS. Candidates will use this platform to check their details including the JAMB registration number, names, date of birth, schools of choice, courses of choice, etc. CAPS will also be used to check if your O'level results have been truly uploaded if a school has offered you admission, transferred you to a new course, and so on.

However, as soon as you log in to that platform, you're most likely to see only the word "WELCOME" especially if you're using a mobile phone to check.

Whereas, the Welcome message is not a problem. You just have to know how to twist things so that the page will adapt to show the CAPS' details such as the O'level upload section, schools of choice link, and so on.

In this post, I will be showing you why the only message you're seeing on your CAPS is WELCOME and what to do in order to see other details.

How To See Other CAPS Details If your Profile Only Shows WELCOME

Take the following actions and the issue is bygone.

1. Use a Computer Instead of a Mobile Phone

Though students are closer to using mobile or smart phones to access their CAPS lately. However, the CAPS dashboard seems somewhat complex for mobile devices to show beyond WELCOME on arrival to the CAPS section. Hence, the best take is to use a computer to access your profile.

If you use a computer, automatically after clicking on Access My CAPS, on your dashboard, you're going to see all necessary links available on the CAPS.

If you don't have a computer or you can't get a connected one from a friend, family, or teacher, use the service of a trusted and experienced cyber cafe around you. They depend on computers for their works and they should be able to check for you for a small fee.

2. If You're Using Phones, Use Chrome To Access Your JAMB Profile

Experiences had shown that very many students had been facing problems accessing their CAPS after login into their profiles because they're using other browsers than Chrome. 

Browers such as opera, Mozilla Firefox, etc. may not adapt well for you to access CAPS even if you can log in to your profile. And in most cases, these browsers will only limit you to see WELCOME only.

To save yourself the sweat, use Google Chrome. You can download that from the play store or apple store.

3. iPhone Users Should Try Android Phones

A few students had also reported that using iPhones vis-à-vis using its safari will only show them WELCOME after they log in to their JAMB profiles.

This could be traceable to iPhone and its security thing. 

In this case, if after using Chrome and following the steps in the next section, things remain the same, consider borrowing a friend's android phone if you don't have one yourself, and use it to access your CAPS.

4. Irrespective of the Phones and Browsers, Change Your Browser's View to the DESKTOP

CAPS page may not adapt to Desktop view automatically after logging in to your profile, on a phone. Hence, whether you're using Andriod or IOS, chrome or Phonix, just consider changing the default mobile view to the desktop view.

To illustrate this, let's use Chrome and an Android phone example.

To log in to your JAMB profile, click https://efacility.jamb.gov.ng/ValidateeMail

JAMB profile login page

If you've not linked your email with your JAMB profile, you'll not able to log in here. And if you created a JAMB profile wrongly, you may not even be in the right JAMB profile after the login.
