Admission Status On JAMB CAPS
When checking your admission, you are likely to see one of the three admission statuses on JAMB CAPS. They are:
- Admission In Progress
- Not Admitted
- Admission Pending
Admission In Progress
“Admission In Progress” on JAMB CAPS means that the university or institution you applied to is currently reviewing your application for admission. It implies that the institution has not yet made a final decision on your admission status. That means the institution is yet to submit her admission lists to JAMB for uploading on the CAPS system.
If your admission status reads “admission in progress,” it means that you should keep checking the JAMB CAPS portal for updates on your admission status.
The status may change to “admitted” if your application is successful, or “not admitted” if your application is not successful.
FIND OUT: List of Universities That Do Not Write Post UTME
“Not Admitted” on JAMB CAPS means that the institution you applied to has not offered you admission for the academic session. In other words, your application has been unsuccessful, and you have not been selected for admission.
There are various reasons why a candidate’s application may be unsuccessful, such as not meeting the admission requirements, low JAMB score, poor performance in the post-UTME (if applicable), or not meeting the institution’s quota for the course of study.
It is important to note that meeting the minimum requirements for admission does not guarantee admission as the admission process is usually competitive.
If your admission status reads “Not Admitted”, you can still apply for admission through JAMB’s supplementary admission process or consider other options, such as applying to other institutions or courses. Also, note that there may be subsequent admission lists, so it is essential to keep checking the JAMB CAPS portal for updates on your admission status.
“Admission Pending” on JAMB CAPS means that the institution you applied to is yet to make a final decision on your admission status. It implies that the institution is still considering your application, and you may be offered admission in due time.
If your admission status reads “Admission Pending”, it means that you should keep checking the JAMB CAPS portal for updates on your admission status.
It is also important to note that the institution may release subsequent admission lists. So you should keep checking the JAMB CAPS portal for updates until they conclude the admission process.
Transfer of Admission On JAMB CAPS
“Transfer of Admission” on JAMB CAPS means that the institution you applied to has transferred your admission to another course or department within the same institution.
This can happen if the institution deems that you are not suitable for the course you initially applied for but is willing to offer you admission into another course or department.
It is important to note that the transfer of admission is not automatic and may be subject to the availability of space in the new course or department. If the transfer is successful, your admission status on JAMB CAPS will change to “Admitted” under the new course or department.
If your admission status reads “Transfer of Admission”, it means that you should keep checking the JAMB CAPS portal for updates on your admission status.
Once the transfer is completed successfully, you will be offered admission into the new course or department, and your admission status will change to “Admitted” under the new course or department.
Accepting your admission on JAMB CAPS is a crucial step in the admission process. We hope that this guide has provided you with all the information you need to successfully accept your admission offer on JAMB CAPS.
