You now have the choice of accepting or rejecting the admission offer. You will need to travel to the college to finish the admissions procedure if you decide to accept the offer.

In that case, you will get a notification that reads, “Sorry, no admission is given yet.” As a result, you have not yet received an admissions offer. You should continue to visit the website for changes.

Step 6: Check admission status with JAMB CAPS

Verifying the JAMB Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) webpage is as vital to verifying your UTME admission status. If you have been recommended for admission, have been admitted, or if your admission is still pending, this portal will give you more specific information on your admission status.

Visit the JAMB website, select the “Admissions” tab, then select the “CAPS” option to check your JAMB CAPS. Before attempting to access CAPS, please verify that your Chrome browser is set to desktop view. Start using it in desktop mode.

Here, you may see your admissions status, decide whether to accept or reject admission offers, and see information about the school and program you have been accepted to pursue.


JAMB Admission Status that Reads “Not Yet Admitted”: What to Do

Still not admitted? If so, kindly be aware of the following:

1. Login into JAMB CAPS to Verify Your O’level Result Upload.

Checking whether your O’level results have been posted on the portal is crucial because failing to do so could affect your admission status with JAMB.

Go to and enter the login details for your JAMB profile.

You should click on “Check Admission Status” and “Access my CAPS.”

Click “My O’level” to see if your O’level has been submitted. If not, post your O-level results at any local JAMB CBT center that is allowed. Candidates whose O’level status in CAPS is “Awaiting Result” are not eligible for admission.

2. Check if You Have Been Recommended for Transfer to Another Program.

UTME and O’level combinations have the right to be taken into account by institutions when deciding which candidates to consider for transfer to another program, according to the JAMB CAPS implementation policy.

Candidates must check their admission by following steps a through c above, then click the ‘Transfer Approval’ link to find out if a transfer to another program is advised.

You must decide whether to approve or reject this transfer consideration. Your top-choice college will be able to accept you into the new program if you accept.

If you decline, you will continue in the course or program of your choice. Consequently, there won’t be any impact on the program transfer.

3. While Awaiting Results, You Applied for the JAMB UTME.

For the institution of their choice to process their admission, candidates who selected “awaiting result” during registration must upload their O-Level results to the JAMB portal. 

Direct-entry candidates, including JUPEB students, must upload their A- and O-level results to be considered for admission. This will let the screening personnel assess their eligibility for admission. It is advised that you read How to Upload O’Level Results on the JAMB Portal / Profile.

One of the most important steps in the admissions process is to check your UTME admission status.

You can quickly verify this status and take the appropriate actions to accept or reject the admission offer by following the above-described processes. 

As admission statuses can change at any time, constantly monitor the website and JAMB CAPS portal for updates.
