Explanation of some JAMB CAPS Admission Terms

  1. NOT ADMITTED” (or) “SORRY YOU HAVE NOT BEEN GIVEN ADMISSION“: This is the first ever thing to appear on your JAMB CAPS which you may have seen already. It just means that you haven’t been considered for Provisional Admission yet. So you need to continue checking regularly okay? Please note that you must not stop checking until admission for 2020/2021 is over.
  2. ADMISSION IN PROGRESS” or “ADMISSION IS BEING PROCESSED: It immediately changes to this when you have been considered for admission already. There is a 98% chance that if you see this, you should consider yourself admitted already because it will definitely change only in few unheard case have the otherwise happened.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE BEEN OFFERED PROVISIONAL ADMISSION” : It changes to this just few days or probably hours after it showed “ADMISSION IN PROGRESS”. This means that you have been considered for admission and you need to “ACCEPT/REJECT”.

This is one reason not to get too excited, calm down and accept your admission before celebration. Over excitement can lead you to rejecting the very admission you have been hoping for and that action is nearly irreversible.
