This complaint is common among Jamb candidates each year. They usually notice this problem when checking for their admission status on Jamb Caps portal.
The first mistake to avoid making is not using the email address used to register for Jamb. Use your Jamb email address by inputting it and resetting password. If you are unsure of the email address that was used to register for Jamb, check Jamb slip to be sure.
What do I do if I can’t access my caps?
There are two possible reasons why you can’t access your Jamb caps. One of them is due to an invalid email address and the second one is because of an invalid password.
If you can’t access your Caps due to the first reason, follow the steps below.
Go back to your Jamb slip to confirm your email address: Your Jamb slip contains necessary information for the Jamb examination such as choice of institutions, date of birth, including email address.
So, you can easy refer back to your Jamb slip when you want to confirm the email address that was used for Jamb registration.
Try to log into your Jamb caps using your Jamb registration number: Jamb caps also lets you access your Jamb caps having your registration number instead of email address. Input your Jamb registration number and password instead of your email address and see if it grants you access.
If you can’t access your caps due to the second reason, follow the steps below:
Confirm your password from Jamb portal: When you visit Jamb portal, there is an option, ‘Forget Password’, click on it.
Enter your email address and click on Continue. Jamb will send you a link to your email address. Using that link, you can change your password.
How do I know my JAMB caps username and password?
Whenever you forget your Jamb username, remember that it is the email address used during Jamb registration. You can go back to your UTME slip to check it.
Your password is usually safe with the person who registered your Jamb for you. You can easily ask again for the password. Most times, your password could be your name or your phone number.
Due to this, it makes it easier for anyone to access your account by just knowing your name or phone number. The good news is that you could go back to change it to a stronger password that can’t be easily bypassed.
You can change the password anytime by clicking on the forgot password option after inputting your email address. You will find this on the efacility login page.
