Admission Given on JAMB CAPS but Not on School Portal. Here is Why and What to do

This is a twin post to my recent one, “Admission is Given on School Portal But Not on JAMB CAPS. Here is Why and what to do.”

I’d written that to put candidates’ minds at rest if they find themselves in such situations.

As for this, let’s see what actually happened if JAMB CAPS has given you admission (and you’d already accepted that) but the school portal has not reflected such.

First, you need to know how school and JAMB work to give you admission. Below is the summary.
  1. Your school prepares the list of candidates they want to offer admission
  2. They should send that to JAMB
  3. JAMB then verifies the list to see if those candidates merit the admission
  4. Then, they upload that to CAPS for applicants to accept.
  5. Candidates can now print JAMB admission letter

JAMB is Quicker than School to Upload List

Yes. Most schools will wait for JAMB to upload to CAPS and allow enough time for candidates to accept admissions before they will upload the same to their portals.

This approach is mostly used.

Hence, if you find yourselves in this situation, don’t worry. Wait till your school is set to allow you to check admission status on their postal.

In the meantime, you may love to read this guide, “What Candidates Should Do After JAMB Gives Admission on CAPS

Special Situation: If this Case Does not Happen to Other Candidates 

Sometimes, after a school has uploaded the list to the portal, you may still not find your name there. This is a different case.

In other words, JAMB has given you admission and the school has also uploaded admission list for candidates to check on the portal. Others have seen theirs both at JAMB and school but you can’t see yours on the school’s portal.

To resolve this issue, you will need to be patient awhile for ICT to complete uploading to the school portal (if they’ve not already).

If after rechecking for some days, the problem persists, kindly visit the school ICT or admission office to report this. They will find a solution to it.
