In the recent days, we've heard of issues like; change of institution not reflecting on JAMB caps, how to resolve your JAMB Change of Course/Institution Reversal, how to know if your change of institution was successful, how to check jamb choice of institution, and lot's more.

Jamb change of Institution not reflecting on caps

We've moved around to gather information and we are pleased to inform you that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB have activated a new feature on the JAMB Caps, that allows student who just did change of institution to refresh their portal and make the right changes.

MY CHOICES is a new feature added to the JAMB Caps in order to simplify and reduce the stress and delay that students encounter after changing institution.

This decision was made after JAMB had received various messages from aspirant who did change of Institution with the aim of immediate reflection, so as to using it for admission.

See one of the messages sent by a student below;

A student reported an issue of JAMB change of Institution not reflecting. This led to the implementation of a new feature by jamb.


Since this feature had been enabled, students/applicants don't need to visit any CBT center or spend any money to refresh/enable their changes.

So to do this with your phone, follow the steps below; 

  • Supply your Email Address and Password in the required columns and then login.
  • Then locate and click on ‘Check Admission Status‘.
  • Select your examination year, supply your JAMB registration number in the required column and then click on ‘Access my CAPS‘ button.

You will be welcomed with a white screen like this: (you can click on the image for better view)

Select the three-dotted line as seen in the image above.

  • Select the three-dotted line at the top right corner of your browser ( i.e. ⋮) and then tick ‘Desktop site‘. (you can click on the image for a better view)
  • Select ‘Admission Status‘ on the left panel.
  • Locate and click on the ‘Search‘ button in front of your JAMB Registration Number to load your profile.
  • Now click on the 'MY CHOICES'
