What To Know Before You Reject Admission On JAMB CAPS

It is no longer news that candidates have the choice of Accepting or Rejecting the admission offered to them on JAMB CAPS .  If you reject the Admission offered to you, you will automatically be available in the CAPS Market place where other institutions may consider you for admission if you meet their admission criteria.

The issue is that many candidates are rejecting the admission offered to them by a polytechnic hoping that a Federal or State University will give them admission later while some are rejecting the admission offered to them because they were not offered the course they wanted to study.

One thing such candidates should know is that most Federal and State Universities in Nigeria will likely not be visiting the Market place to look out for candidates majorly because they have more than enough candidates that applied to them for admission.

So that simply means that the institutions that will likely visit the market place are majorly private universities and other institutions that have low number of candidates that applied to them.

We therefore advised candidates not to be fast in rejecting their admission. Unless you are absolutely sure you do not need the admission and equally do not mind going to a private university or waiting for another JAMB, please do not reject your admission.

So even if your school of choice offers you admission into a course you did not choose, take time and think it through before making the decision on whether to accept or reject the admission.

  14. My skul hv nt yet release their list and jamb has offer me admission in oda skul wish i hv not yet accept or reject it, is there any possibility my name will still come out in my original skul?

    • Two schools will not offer you admission at the same time on JAMB Portal. If you are sure you do not want the admission, just reject it. No other school will consider you for admission until you reject the one you have already been offered. However, just like I stated in the post, be absolutely sure you do not need the admission before you reject it.

  15. What abt direct entry candidate?
