JAMB CAPS Admission Status: What You Need To know about JAMB CAPS 2018/2019. 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 MARKETPLACE 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 into your school of choice, but for certain reasons.
