Before now, checking your JAMB admission status – what you saw was blank spaces for both the institution and course.
This had caused confusion and a series of misconceptions. Some candidates thought all was over as they might be out of luck for this year. That’s why I explained the meaning of this situation in the post, “JAMB CAPS Shows “Not Admitted”: All Hope Lost?”.
And for those who are necessarily concerned about the empty spaces for their schools and courses, I cleared your doubt in the post, “Institution and Course Not Showing (Blank) in CAPS? Reasons and Solutions”.
Things had changed lately. JAMB has restored your institution and course of choice at the Admission Status page.

That seems to have given some reliefs and left some candidates confused.
Some interpreted this as they’ve been offered admission or will be any time sooner.
Well, they may be right but there is more to know.
Institution and Course Showing Doesn’t Mean Admitted – Not Yet.
JAMB has just upgraded her portal, the same she does from time to time.
That’s why candidates are now seeing institutions and courses.
One of the confused admission seekers had asked the body whether that means he was already admitted.
Below was their interaction.
Please, my institution and course suddenly appeared on caps but status unchanged (Not Admitted).. does it means I’ve been offered admission?
Displaying a candidate’s preferred institution/course of study does not mean that a candidate has been admitted. It’s part of the Board’s site upgrade as the platform will henceforth display such information.

What Next After This?
Though JAMB had announced the closing date for this year’s admission, we should be on the lookout for an extension as more and more schools are just dropping their first and second batches. In fact, a few are still selling forms.
Hence, be hopeful that you may be lucky in the admission lists of your proposed institution.
Candidates should also be aware that some institutions are now transferring their candidates from their desired courses to other related courses with vacancies. You can check that to be sure that you’d not been transferred. If you’d been transferred but never accepted it, your status will remain NOT ADMITTED.
