According to the Registrar, all these policies put in place by JAMB are to the benefits of every candiate as it will ensure that every one is trated fairly and equally and no candidate is cheated on during his/her quest for admission.
He also mentioned that some years ago they were a lot of admission errors becuase the admission processes were handled manually, that is why they came up with the idea of the JAMB CAPS (Central Admissions Processing System) to ensure that everything was done accurately.
The Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) was introduced so that candidates can monitor their admission progress and also to also ensure that the whole admission process is carried out without anyone cheated on.
However, if you feel that you have a high Jamb score and you were not given admission or you if you feel that you have been cheated on, you can forward your complaint to Jamb using the procedures below.

Prof. Oloyede declared that the core mandate of the Board is to ensure that no candidate is unjustly treated or denied his/her rightful place in the conduct of admissions by various institutions.
He urged all institutions to endeavor to provide valid explanations to candidates who might not be satisfied with their processes and where the candidates are found to have been unfairly treated, such institutions should not be ashamed to make amends.
