It means your school of choice has not sent or proposed any list of admitted candidates to JAMB, or your school has sent the list of admitted candidates, but you have not been considered for admission.

Invalid e-Mail Address or Password On JAMB CAPS Portal

When you visit jamb.org.ng/efacility, you will see a box to enter your email and password and then login. If you get the error, Invalid e-Mail Address or Password, Try Again then it means something is wrong. It is either your email was not entered correctly or the password you entered is wrong.

Passwords are case sensitive, when it comes to password, school is different from School. The first is all small letters while the later start with a capital letter.

The keyboard issue may also lead to this. If your keyboard is bad, you may think you’re entering the correct password but meanwhile, you are entering the wrong thing.

If you are sure of the email and password you entered plus the fact that your phone or laptop keyboard is working very well, but the issue persists, then you have to reset the password.
