JAMB Giving Admission for 2021: Is it True?

JAMB logo
I started this post after I'd got a dozen questions because the news has it that JAMB was giving admissions to admission seekers for this year.

Have you heard the same? Obviously, that's why you're on this page.

This post will answer your questions and related ones if you can just read through to the last words.

JAMB Hasn't Released Admission Lists for 2021

As simple as it is, JAMB has not started offering admissions to any candidates at the time of this post. 

Whereas, a few weeks after each institution closes its post UTME or screening forms, others will be releasing admission lists to the JAMB portal as well. 

The news that most people read was actually not referring to the 2021 admission. It's was referring to 2020.

The confusion, of course, was due to the fact that candidates are already aware that JAMB has offered admissions for 2020, in the past. In fact, most admitted candidates are right on camoses. So, hearing the news of admission offers by now could easily be mistaken for 2021. After all, we're in 2021.

JAMB Truly Announced That Admission Lists Were Out

Even though it's already 2021, JAMB is aware that very many 2020 candidates had not checked their status. This was because the board had confirmed that a few candidates had checked their CAPS admission status.

The board, therefore, was curious before the 2021 admission will commence fully, to inform those who had not checked to do so, if they're having outstanding admission offers.

In case you don't know, some schools are still offering admissions for 2020 to date.

As a means to help further, JAMB has launched an SMS shortcode for candidates to know their status directly through their phones. They don't need to login into their JAMB profiles again before knowing their status.

According to JAMB, to check your admission status on phone through SMS:
  1. Send STATUS 2020 to 55019
  2. A confirmation message will enter your phone after being charged N50.
  3. This message should state if you're offered admission for the year or not. 
  4. And in case of any issues or errors, you're to contact JAMB through https://support.jamb.gov.ng


In the meantime, all admission seekers for the 2021 session should relax and wait until JAMB officially announces admission lists for 2021. In the meantime, activities such as change of institutions and courses, the printing of results, post UTME or screening registrations, and more continue as usual.

Any admission lists news should be addressing the last admission seekers. 2021 candidates shouldn't expect any admission offers until all post UTMEs and screenings are done for the year.
