What Happens When You Don’t Accept or Reject Admission On JAMB CAPS

Many candidates offered admission on JAMB CAPS for one reason or the other often fail to accept or reject the admission offered to them. Some do not even know when they have been offered admission. This is why you need to constantly visit the JAMB CAPS so you can know when you have been offered admission and either accept it or reject it.

The question now is, what happens if a candidate do not accept or reject his/her admission? Before I answer that, you need to know that each school has its own deadline or time frame for admission.

The school may not give candidates a specific deadline to either accept or reject admission. However, the school expects you to do so within the shortest possible time.

Now back to the question, what happens when you don’t accept or reject Admission on JAMB CAPS?

What Happens when you Fail To Accept Your Admission On JAMB Caps

There are two major things that happen when a candidate fails to accept or reject his or her admission on JAMB CAPS;

1. The Admission Will Likely Be Withdrawn: If you do not accept or reject the Admission offered to you on JAMB CAPS, you will be seen as not interested in the admission and it will be withdrawn so that other interested candidates can be considered.

Once the admission has been withdrawn, you have lost it. There is no reversal. That same school will not offer you another admission.

2. There May Not Be Admission Consideration From Another School: If you leave the admission offered to you, without either accepting it or rejecting it, another school may not consider you or offer you another admission.

So it is important that if you do not like the school or course that you have been admitted to study, quickly reject it so that you can be considered for admission in another school.

So if you are an admission seeker for the 2019/2020 academic session, it is important that you closely monitor your JAMB CAPS so you can do the needful as soon as you have been offered admission.
