Understanding Some JAMB CAPS Admission Terms

  1. “NOT ADMITTED” or “SORRY, YOU HAVE NOT BEEN GIVEN ADMISSION”: This is the first message you’ll see on your JAMB CAPS, and you might have seen it already. It just means you haven’t been accepted for admission yet. Keep checking regularly, and remember not to stop until the admission process for the session is finished.
  2. “ADMISSION IN PROGRESS” or “ADMISSION IS BEING PROCESSED”: This status appears when your admission is under review. If you see this, there’s a high chance you’re admitted—around 98%. In very rare cases, it might change, but for the most part, it means you’re likely accepted.
  3. “CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE BEEN OFFERED PROVISIONAL ADMISSION”: This message appears shortly after seeing “ADMISSION IN PROGRESS,” typically within a few days or even hours. It signifies that you’ve been considered for admission, and you’ll need to decide whether to “ACCEPT/REJECT” it.

It’s a crucial step, so it’s wise to stay calm and accept the admission before celebrating. Being overly excited might lead you to accidentally reject the admission, and reversing that decision is nearly impossible.
