JAMB CAPS 2024: Check Your Admission Status

Home » General Education » JAMB CAPS 2024: Check Your Admission Status

This is to inform you that the JAMB CAPS 2024 login portal has been opened for students who participated in the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board examination. We are going to educate you on what to do about it.

There was a day I came up with a question in a WhatsApp group. I asked a candidate if he had checked his admission status on caps.

To my greatest surprise, he returned the question to me, saying he didn’t know what it meant. You are at the right place if you know nothing about it.

What is JAMB CAPS All About?

The abbreviation stands for JAMB Central Admission Processing System; the usage of this portal is to regulate and narrow the admission fraud rate.

We have some fraudsters who pretend to work at the jamb office and use that to fool candidates.

Don’t be deceived by anyone who tells you he will help you get your admission approval. If you’re a victim of this, kindly avoid such people because all they need is your money.

JAMB Admission Status Portal

Here, you are given the privilege to decide whether to proceed with your registration or terminate it for one reason or another.

You may be offered admission to a course you didn’t pick during registration or a course you are not willing to study, probably because of your Post Utme score or O’level subject combination. As a result, you might be willing to decline the offer.

If you’ve been successfully offered admission, it is highly advisable to accept the admission. Follow the steps below.

How to Accept or Reject Admission Offer

  • Visit the JAMB portal to log in; kindly click here to begin the process.

If you ain’t seeing this, kindly check your network connectivity.

Change to desktop view

It’s time to know whether you’ve been admitted because we are primarily concerned with that. I am sure by now you should be able to perform other activities anyway. Let’s ride on.

If you can’t, continue reading.

Try looking at the navbar and locate “admission status” on your dashboard, then click on it. If you see admitted, you can ride on by clicking the ‘ Reject or Accept’ button. I hope it’s simple.

Things You Can Do on the JAMB CAPS Portal

We still have some other things you can check out there.

1. View Your Bio-Data On CAPS

You can also view your JAMB profile, i.e., all your details, including ( your JAMB registration number, name, gender, date of birth, state of origin, and UTME score).

After logging into the JAMB e-facility portal, checking and verifying your bio-data is also compulsory. Why? If there is an error in the details uploaded, you can quickly make corrections to it before it is too late.

All you have to do is click on ‘my profile.

Note: corrections such as change of name, gender, e.t.c cannot be done on the caps portal you can only view them there.

2. Check your uploaded O’level result on JAMB

On the navigation menu of the JAMB portal, there is a menu with O’level clicking on it that will allow you to check the result you’ve uploaded during your registration.

“it is important to upload your O’level result before admission list is being released.”

3. Checking CAPS Market Place

Unlike before, your result will only be sent to your chosen institution. Now, JAMB has enabled students to get admitted into schools they didn’t pick during enrollment. You might be considered at the market area, and don’t forget to edit changes afterwards.

Here are some questions students keep asking concerning the above topic. If you have any questions, feel free to ask by dropping them In the comment box.

How To Check JAMB Admission Status

Follow these simple steps to check your admission status on JAMB CAPS in 2024.

  • Access the efacility portal at caps.jamb.gov.ng and log in with your details.
  • If it tells you the incorrect or wrong password, kindly reset your password via email.
  • After logging in, click on CHECK ADMISSION STATUS.
  • Then, access the JAMB CAPS portal by entering your registration number (make sure you select the correct year on your dashboard).

Meaning of Admission in Progress

The answer to this is quite simple: the system is currently processing your admission, and when it has been fully processed and verified, you will see the offer on your dashboard.

There’s no need to panic, as this is a sign of hope that you are getting admitted very soon.

What Does not admitted mean in JAMB CAPS?

It means that JAMB has not received any admission offered to you; an institution may have offered you one, but it will take some time before it reflects on your admission status.

Is JAMB CAPS still giving Admission?

Let it be known that JAMB does not offer or give admission. It is the institution that you applied for that can give you admission.

JAMB will start working on it some weeks or months after an educational institution in Nigeria has given you admission. There is no exact deadline, but you should regularly check your CAPS page.

Meaning of Transfer Approval

This section is meant for those whose course was changed. They were offered admission to study a course different from the one they chose in JAMB. This happened to me in 2019; my dashboard screenshot is below.

Course transfer approval

You must approve or reject the transfer, which is very easy. If you approve it, you must change course (visit any Cafe for this) before you can print out your 2024 JAMB admission letter.

Suppose your school has offered you provisional admission. In that case, I advise you to claim it to make you qualify for the printing of your JAMB admission letter and proceed with any other registration.

Sharing this article with your friends will take less than a minute. May God bless you as you do so.
