As stated in the beginning of this post, CAPS is an acronym for Central Admission Processing System. This method of admission came into light in 2017 and it was adopted by JAMB in order to improve the transparency, credibility and the value of admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

This system automatically selects qualified students according to the admission requirements set. It is meant to serve as a ‘market place’ for different universities such that they’ll pull from the CAPS, the quality of students they want.
