Why is My O’level Result Showing Twice on JAMB Portal?

Why is My O’level Result Showing Twice on JAMB Portal? As the process of gaining admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria becomes increasingly digitized, candidates are encountering new challenges and complexities, particularly concerning the uploading of their O’level results on the JAMB portal and subsequent reflections on the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS). This article seeks to address concerns related to repeated subjects on the JAMB CAPS and their implications for the admission process.

The Issue of Repeated Subjects on JAMB CAPS

Many admissions seekers have reported instances where subjects from their O’level results appear duplicated on the JAMB CAPS, leading to confusion and concern. This often occurs after candidates have visited CBT centers to upload their results, only to find that certain subjects are listed twice with corresponding grades.

Understanding the Cause

The repetition of subjects on the JAMB CAPS is typically a result of technical glitches within the JAMB portal and is not attributed to errors made by the CBT centers during the result upload process. Several factors can contribute to this issue, such as multiple attempts to upload results, the addition of supplementary results, or refreshing the portal multiple times to update results.

How It Affects Your  Admission

Despite the appearance of repeated subjects on the JAMB CAPS, candidates need not be alarmed, as this issue does not impact their eligibility for admission. Tertiary institutions are primarily concerned with the required subjects for each course, which typically range from 5 to 6. The presence of additional or repeated subjects on the JAMB CAPS does not affect a candidate’s admission prospects, as long as the required subjects are included.

Completing the Post-UTME Form

During the post-UTME registration process, candidates will be required to provide their O’level results, ensuring that all subjects and grades are accurately entered. While the JAMB CAPS may display repeated subjects, candidates should adhere to the specific requirements outlined by their chosen institutions during the post-UTME or screening registration. This involves accurately inputting the required subjects for their proposed courses, regardless of any duplication displayed on the JAMB CAPS.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the appearance of repeated subjects on the JAMB CAPS is a technical issue that does not affect a candidate’s admission prospects. Candidates should focus on accurately completing their post-UTME forms according to the requirements of their chosen institutions, ensuring that all necessary subjects and grades are provided. By understanding the implications of repeated subjects on the JAMB CAPS and taking the necessary steps during the admission process, candidates can navigate this issue with confidence.
