This is to guide candidates concerning the meaning of some terms like “NOT ADMITTED”, “ADMISSION IN PROGRESS” etc they see on their JAMB CAPS ADMISSION portal.

Not according to JAMB, but we can explain the meaning of these terms from what was said during the JAMB CAPS admission sensitization programme which was held in Lagos this year.



NOTE: If your Admission Status on the JAMB CAPS ADMISSION Portal reads “NOT ADMITTED”, it is assumed that your school of choice is yet to send the proposed 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.

Moreover, for those that their Admission Status reads “RECOMMENDED”, the possible meaning to that is through 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.

However, 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.

Nevertheless, 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.

So if you are yet to be admitted, the best you can do is keep checking back on the JAMB portal and hope your admission status changes.

For those who have been admitted, congratulations! Please go ahead to accept your admission on the JAMB CAPS portal unless you no longer want the admission; in that case, you can reject it.
