Many students are confused on how to check their admission status on caps.

What is Jamb Caps?

The Jamb (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board) Caps is short for Central Admission Processing System. 

Jamb Caps streamlines the Admissions Process, addresses the challenges associated with the manual approach, restores the autonomy of the tertiary institutions with respect to admissions, makes candidates the focus and empowers them with information on available choices of institutions and programmes, expands admission opportunities, eliminates multiple admissions, and provides easily retrievable data for decision making and research on the Education Sector in the country.

It also helps JAMB to refocus on its founding ideals as the Clearing House for admissions into the tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

Brief history of the Jamb caps?

It was adopted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board,Jamb in 2017.

It was used a system to curb admission runs etc. I wont really say if it was successful but these is Nigeria and we still use it till today.

What does Jamb admission in progress mean on jamb caps? 

Admission in progress also known as “AIP”, means two things:

 Your admission is already sure Jamb had finally approved you and it remains approval from your school.

 But we’ve seen cases of people who had AIP and it changed to not admitted.

I remember back then in 2018 when my jamb caps changed to admission in progress… I knew I was admitted already.. You need to see how I was shouting and screaming “Their Fada!! 😂” Don’t worry you will be admitted pal.

Why is my institution and course not showing on Jamb caps? 

Don’t panic, your institution and course is not showing on Jamb caps because there is an error fromJAMB and it isn’t your fault.

They are most likely still working on it. … It doesn’t mean you have been admitted.

It just means you should go to JAMB CAPS Portal, check admission status and accept admission if you have been admitted to your school/course of choice.

I have been admitted on school website but not on caps? 

You saw admission on your school’s website but caps is saying not admitted.

This is most likely because you haven’t uploaded your results.

So quickly go to upload your result and check again after a week.
