  1. You selected the wrong Year in jamb
  2. You filled in incorrect data; Jamb registration Number
  3. You did not register for Jamb for the Intended year

How To Fix ‘Not eligible to use this service’ on Jamb Caps

Now that we know the causes / reasons why you keep receiving this error, I guess it will be easy to resolve now right?. I will highlight steps you should take for each possible cause of this error…

1. You selected the wrong Year in jamb

This is mostly the case for student who have registered for Jamb before and are yet to update their Jamb Profile, so what happens here is that, each time you login with your Jamb profile details, the year shown on your profile by default is different from the current year in question.

2. You filled in incorrect data; Jamb registration Number

Yes, this can also be the reason you are getting this error. In order to resolve this, Recheck your Jamb registration Number and this time make sure it corresponds exactly with what you have on your Jamb Registration slip.

3. You did not Register Jamb for the Intended Year

Make sure the year you are checking for is the year you registered for (this is very important).

If after following these tips above you still get this feedback prompt then it would mean that you created your Jamb profile manually on the Jamb e-facility page and used that to log in to your profile without first connecting it with your Jamb registration details.
