What You Must Know When Checking JAMB CAPS Admission Status



Sequel to the activation of JAMB CAPS admission status portal, questions have been coming from candidates concerning the meaning of some terms like “NOT ADMITTED”, “ADMISSION IN PROGRESS” etc they see on their CAPS portal.

We would like to explain some few things concerning that.

Though JAMB has not made any official remark on this recently, however, we can deduce the possible meaning of these terms from what was said during the CAPS sensitization programme earlier this year. 

If your Admission Status on the CAPS Portal reads “NOT ADMITTED”, it could be that your school of choice is yet to send the proposed the list of admitted candidates to JAMB. However if your school of choice has released its admission list and your admission status on CAPS Portal still shows “NOT ADMITTED” then it simply means that you have not been considered for admission in that school.

For those that their Admission Status reads “RECOMMENDED”, the possible meaning to that is though your school of choice has considered you for admission, JAMB is still reviewing your admission to ensure it complies with all the necessary criteria put in place by your school of choice and JAMB.

On the other hand, if you see “ADMISSION IN PROGRESS…..” it is likely that you have met the requirements to be admitted in your school of choice but not yet considered for admission due to issues like admission quota, ELDS, Male to female ratio etc. This means you may have a chance of being admitted if some other candidates that were offered admission in the school decide to reject the admission.

So if you are yet to be admitted, the best you can do is keep checking back on the portal and hope your admission status changes.

For those who have been admitted, congratulations! Please go ahead to accept your admission unless you no longer want the admission; in that case, you can reject it.

Finally, for those that say they were unable to see anything when they log on to their CAPS portal through their JAMB Profile, please try using a computer system or change your browser.

About JAMB CAPS

The JAMB Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is an admission processing system that is geared towards ensuring quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process. JAMB CAPS makes provision for a “market place” in the JAMB portal where institutions can go and “request for students in Nigeria who score their cut off points.” If you are offered admission on the JAMB CAPS portal, you can choose to accept or reject the admission.

    1. Favour, you should see your name on the school's admission list, as well. Although, you're not the one experiencing this. Which school did you apply for admission into?

    Please is it possible for jamb to give u admission and school will not give u admission
    Or school to give u admission and jamb won't

    1. It is possible but usually, after some time, the discrepancies are usually resolved so that both JAMB and the school reflect the person's admission.

    1. Rachy, it means you should be patient and keep checking. Either, your school is yet to send the names to JAMB or you have not been given admission. If your school has released their admission list perhaps on the school website, you can also check there to confirm your admission status. All the best!

    1. Peace, be patient. RECOMMENDED means you are still being considered. Besides, UNIPORT is also yet to release any list.

    my name appeared on unn merit list for admission
    but when I went to caps it says "not admitted"
    at first it seemed like this was a general problem but now I hear some people have accepted admission
    what could be the issue here?

    1. For now, it is recommended that you be patient. It's possible that JAMB is yet to upload all the names sent to them by UNN. However, if you have someone in UNN or are currently close to the school, you can complain to the school's ICT department.

  • I was admitted on UNN merit list, at first my jamb Caps was saying admission in progress check back later. But after two days it was saying not admitted though this was a general problem to all the admitted students. But currently, others are saying that they have accepted their admissions on the caps, but mine is still displaying not admitted.
    pls help. I'm frustrated right now.

    1. Don't think you'll be penalized. As long as you go with the correct results for your clearance, the issue should be rectified.

    1. Boluwatife, if your question is well understood, any school that conducts Post-UTME makes it compulsory.
