JAMB CAPS Admission Status: What You Need To know

Since the JAMB CAPS portal was enabled for candidates to check and confirm their admission status, many candidates have been a bit confused about certain terms they see on their dashboard. This post is to explain the meaning of some of the terms you are likely to find once you log on to JAMB CAPS portal.

Please you are advised to only check your admission status on JAMB Portal through your JAMB Profile. Once you are on your JAMB CAPS page, the important thing you should look out for is what is written under “ADMISSION STATUS” If you have been offered an admission, what you will find under your ADMISSION STATUS is “CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE BEEN OFFERED ADMISSION!”. You will equally see two buttons under it : “ACCEPT ADMISSION” and “REJECT ADMISSION”.

You are expected to click on the appropriate button to either accept or reject the admission . Like JAMB said earlier, if you accept the admission, it means the admission window for 2017/2018 session has closed for you. If you reject the admission, you will be available in CAPS MARKET PLACE for other schools to consider you for admission.

On the other hand, if your admission has not been approved yet, what you will find under your admission status is “NOT ADMITTED”, “ADMISSION IN PROGRESS” or “RECOMMENDED……”

Now, “NOT ADMITTED” simply means two things; (a) that your school of choice has not sent or proposed any list of admitted candidates to JAMB. (b) It can equally mean that your school has sent in the list of admitted candidates but you have not been considered for admission.

If your Admission status says NOT ADMITTED, you can check back later to see if there are any changes especially if your school of choice has not released its admission list (either on its website or Notice Board) when you first checked JAMB CAPS.

“ADMISSION IN PROGRESS” is likely to mean that you have met the requirements to be admitted in your school of choice, but for certain reasons like Admission Quota and other admission criteria of your school of choice, your admission is still pending. Candidates in this category may be offered admission later if other candidates offered admission by the school decides to reject their admission thereby creating room for more admission slots.

“RECOMMENDED” means that you have been considered for admission but your admission is still under review to ensure you meet all admission criteria set by your institution and JAMB. Finally for those having issues logging in to their CAPS portal through their JAMB Profiles, please try using a computer system or change your browser.

  24. Just checked my admission status on JAMB CAPS. Pity! NOT ADMITTED is the status. I chose BUK, scored 307 in UTME, 313 as aggregate score after BUKAT. Course: English Edu. UTME subject combination: Lit in English, Government, CRK and English Language. SSCE result uploaded: CRK B3, Geog. B3, Gov. B3, Eco. B3, Civic B3, Eng. B3, Math A1, Anim Husb. B2. What exactly do I need to do to get admission at BUK because I don’t get it? Last year, same problem. 264 aggregate for law, no admission. If the excuse given last year was lack of IRK for LAW, what is the excuse this time? can someone tell me? Or could it be because I uploaded an inadequate SSCE result on their portal initially which I deleted later for the one above? Or that BUK has not sent their admission list to JAMB? Just what? Last year, my NO ADMISSION status didn’t change until the whole process closed despite my aggregate score of 264. I want to believe that with the UTME and POST UTME scores of 307 and 313 respectively, JAMB should offer me admission even before the school does. That’s not the case now. What’s happening? Can someone tell me?

    • Pls I was recommend you contact jamb on this matter .. Cos I similarly have a relative who had 313 in jamb and 300 in aggregate but was denied admission even on merit fur medicine…
      Pls contact jamb so that they can charge the school for malpractice in selection of candidates for Admission… even if it means reporting to NTA news I your state plsss do..

    • How did you check if your waec result was uploaded successfully

  25. My Jamb profile is showing” Sorry No Admission is given yet” meanwhile my school of choice offered me admission but no admission letter. Please help me.

  26. Pls i’ve not been able to check my admission but my status is saying print admission later and i can’t print cuz i need to see the school first…pls what should i do

  27. Pls can change of institution affect my chances of getting admission

  28. I can’t log in on my jamb profile, I used as my e-mail address and now is blog. please help me out on what to do

    • I don’t think that is the reason you are not able to login because the email address is only used for the purpose of identification during login.

      • has close their portal, and before they close it, they send me to merge the e-mail address with another one, I do as the said so that any massage send to my naij address will automatically move to the one am using. they said from 2nd of January 2018 the account will be close. now since I used as my address on jamb, am trying to open my jamb profile to check my jamb status, it doesn’t open. please help me on what to do.
