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. As long as you have accepted the admission on JAMB CAPS, you have been admitted. You might need to make a complaint in the school's admissions office perhaps when you go for clearance and registration.

    4. Well, if you have previously accepted the admission, it doesn't seem like you can lose it again. That's not something that happens. What could happen is if a candidate does not accept an admission offer within 72 hours, he or she loses the slot to someone else. If the admission list were already out on unilag's website, it would have been the easiest way to confirm the admission again.

    1. Gozie, your aggregate is high and good enough for most courses. But it depends on how competitive the course is. What course did you apply for?

    1. You have to keep checking as often as possible because you have 72 hours to accept the admission on JAMB CAPS.

    3. The slot is supposed to be made available for someone else. However, in a situation where you've paid the acceptance fee to the school, but haven't accepted the admission on JAMB CAPS, you admission might not be affected.

    7. What are you seeing on the school portal? If you have not been admitted on the school portal, it means the school has probably not made a decision on your admission, which they may do if they plan to release another list of admitted students. It is the school that send the names to JAMB CAPS. If you got up to the cut-off, there will be a good chance of getting admission, and in that case, all you need to do is to be patient. Otherwise, you might need to apply for change of course if the school brings out a supplementary admission form. Sorry for the late response. All the best!

    1. Just be a little bit patient and keep checking. Also, you may need to make a complaint at the school's ICT department or Admissions Department. Because, it is important for you to accept your admission offer on JAMB CAPS.
