All your questions about checking admission status on JAMB’s CAPS will be answered in this article properly.

You will discover the straightforward procedure for checking your JAMB admission status on your JAMB profile via the JAMB CAPS portal as well as how to accept or reject an admission offer if you have been given one. 

The entire process of registering for JAMB, preparing for the JAMB Exam, writing the examination proper, checking your JAMB result to see how well you performed, and preparing and registering for Post UTME for your school of choice are all targeted at your getting admission to study your desired course at the university or school of your choice.

Sometimes, checking if you have been admitted by your school of choice or on JAMB CAPS can pose a serious problem. In fact, I have seen students lose the admission they were given simply because they did not even know they were admitted.

Definitely, this was not intentional, it is simply because they lacked the necessary information on how to go about this, in fact, the next most important thing to do after your Post UTME exams is to consistently check whether or not you have been admitted.

Even if you know the importance of checking your Admission Status, you may still not know how to go about it.

Now, here is the thing: there are about two standard methods to check admission status (they are standard because they can be used by all students, irrespective of their school of choice), and among these two, one is what I recommend you use.

There are others, but not all universities, polytechnics, or colleges of education use them. I will guide you on how to go about this; all you have to do now is take your time to read through diligently.

What Exactly Is Admission Status?

Admission status is the relative position or standing of a student with respect to admission; this status could be “Admission in Progress,” “Admitted, or “Not Admitted” when checked on JAMB CAPS.

Those whose status shows “admitted” have been offered provisional admission by the school they choose in JAMB, while those showing “not admitted” or “admission in progress” are still currently waiting for admission.


How To Check Admission Status To Confirm Admission

There are two (2) prominent ways you can use to check Admission status, they include…

  • Through JAMB CAPS (recommended)
  • Through your choice School Student’s Portal

I only recommend using JAMB CAPS because accepting or Rejecting the admission offered to you have a time frame (deadline), so if you don’t accept the admission prior to that time, you risk losing the admission.

But this does not mean, you should only check your Admission status through JAMB CAPS, my recommendation is, you check your Admission status on JAMB CAPS first and then move on to your School’s Website to check again.

NOTE: It is advisable that you go through all the procedures below before visiting the Jamb Caps portal to check your Jamb admission status.

Think twice before accepting or rejecting the admission you are offered. If you are not yet admitted, keep checking until the admission process is over.
