JAMB CAPS Shows “Not Admitted”: All Hope Lost? (2019/2020)

JAMB CAPS interface showing a candidate's NOT ADMITTED.
Now that admission seekers are continually checking their admission status on JAMB CAPS, there have been a series of complaints. I have addressed the issue of when CAPS doesn’t display your details. I also briefly touched some CAPS messages and their interpretations too. But I want to go into details about “Not Admitted” Messages in this post.

I must do this because many candidates have called to ask if all hope was lost for them this year. They wanted me to put more light on this.

So, you’re in the right page if you’re here to find meanings to:
  1. Not Admitted
  2. sorry, no admission is given yet!!!
  3. admission in progress
  4. admission in progress, check back later

Let’s get into it.

Nothing can be as scary as when a candidate checks his or her CAPS and see “NOT ADMITTED”. But this doesn’t mean all hope is lost. So what happens if you see this message?

1. The school admission list has not been sent to JAMB

It may imply that your school hasn’t started uploading the admission list to JAMB CAPS. Normally, your school will collate the names of applicants they want to consider for admission and send that to JAMB for processing. If your school has not done that, your status will remain “NOT ADMITTED” for the time being.

In this case, you will have to wait for your school to take action first. The only way to know when the school admission process begins is to be revisiting your JAMB CAPS. As soon as your status message changes to something like “Admission is in progress”, you must be on the lookout for good news sooner.

2. You’re not in the first batch admission list

Yes, I know. Some schools have started admission and in fact, some candidates are already given admissions. That’s cool and it doesn’t mean you should run.

Don’t forget that there will be more list(s). The first list is usually merit list or those who have met up with JAMB requirements (I will talk about this shortly). It could just mean that your school is compiling another list for JAMB to upload.

With the hope for the second list, keep checking your CAPS for any positive change for the time being.

3. You’ve not uploaded your awaiting O’level results.

This was one of the reasons your JAMB CAPS can still be showing “NOT ADMITTED”. If during UTME registration, you used awaiting results (i.e you didn't fill, scan and upload your WAEC, NECO, NABTEB or NBAIS results), your admission status will remain “NOT ADMITTED” until you go back to CBT center and upload the result.

Note that, there is no need to re-upload the results if you’ve done that before. Awaiting results candidates will not be offered admission unless they return to the CBT center and re-upload their results. It's one of the JAMB directives and conditions to offer admission through CAPS.

If you want to confirm if a CBT centre uploaded your results or not, use the guidelines I detailed here.

See: Is Re-uploading of O’level Results to JAMB Portal for Everyone?

4. You’re Unlucky to be admitted for the year

This is the bitter truth. Not every admission seeker will be admitted for the year. I pray you’re not one of the unlucky ones.

Your admission status on CAPS may remain “NOT ADMITTED” after your school has uploaded all their lists (i.e 1st, 2nd, 3rd or supplementary). If this is the case, it means you’re not successful this time.

Be sure that your school has announced the closure of admission for this year before you give in to this. This was the date announced by JAMB for admission closure this year. And note that, there can always be an extension.

If in the end, you’re not admitted you can consider any other schools whose admission forms are still on sales. Most institutions will sell supplementary admission form or 2nd round forms. You can take advantage of them.

See: Universities and Others Whose Post UTMEs are Still on Sales (UPDATED)

"No Admission Given Yet" and "Admission in Progress"

If you get this message in CAPS, then you have more hope than “NOT ADMITTED”

As soon as your status shows “admission in progress” with or without “check back later”, it means your school has forwarded a new list to JAMB and they’re also working on uploading it.

All you need is to keep revisiting and monitor the progress from here.

"Sorry, no admission is given yet" is not sad news too. It only means you may eventually be given admission or otherwise.

Conclusion

Understanding this may put your mind at rest and will let you know what to do next. Make sure you take advantage of this guide and share it with others on Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter. It may mean a lot to someone else.

    1. Do JAMB change of institution to the school that offered you admission. CAPS will soon or later offer you admission too.

    1. It will take a few days, weeks or months. It depends on how fast your school and JAMB are on completing the processes. Be patient.

  6. Thanks a bunch Tolani for this educating page. My JAMB portal has been showing me NOT ADMITTED. But recently, after the admission suspension by JAMB to my school, i have started seeing NO ADMISSION YET, I did not know what that meant. But with your explanation, i understand better now. Thanks for not letting live in obscurity.

    1. If the school that offered you admission was the same school on your JAMB portal, you have to wait for JAMB to offer you the same. You can lodge complaint with your school about it. But if it's not the same school, you may need to do change of admission with JAMB.

  8. I have been given admission since 2017 by the school that I choose as first choice but till now,it was saying not admitted yet pls what can I do

    1. First be sure that the school offer you the same course as chosen in JAMB. If not, you have to do change of course to match things up. Two, be sure that the admission given to was a full time admission because part-time (DPP or DPT) can't reflect on JAMB for that year. If all are right, kindly visit your school admission office for hlep.

    1. This is not a problem. Report to your school on this. If they can't handle it, speak to JAMB to know what's going on. See below link for how to contact JAMB.
