JAMB CAPS – How To check, accept/ reject your admission on JAMB e-facility, JAMB CAPS.
CAPS simply stand for Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System. The system is geared towards ensuring quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process.
CAPS is expected to make 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.’
The system is such that institutions can only admit those who meet their cut off points. If a candidate fails to meet the cut off mark, that student would certainly be denied admission irrespective of the candidate’s connection.
With JAMB CAPS, successfully admitted candidates can now ACCEPT/REJECT admission offer.
- Go to JAMB portal at http://www.jamb.org.ng/efacility/.
- Login with your Email and Password.
- Click on CAPS (on the left side of the page).
- Select ‘Admission Status’ on the left panel.
- You can now accept/reject your admission offer under ‘Admission Profile’.
What does “Not AdmItted ” stand for on JAMB CAPS?
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.
What does “Recommended ” stand for on JAMB CAPS?
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.
What does “Admission in progress” stand for on JAMB CAPS?
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.
