How to Check 1st Choice Institution and Course on JAMB

JAMB logo
When a student asks, "how will I check or know the particular institution in my first choice?", you're likely to wonder why this question.


  1. After all, every candidate should know what he chose right while registering for JAMB UTME/DE
  2. At least, every candidate was given the registration slip which detailed the first, second, third, and fourth choice institutions.
  3. And if you ever change institutions, there should be a confirmation slip showing the new changes.


However, with all these available a few students are still confused. And this may not be their fault since:


  1. there have been updates that JAMB will not offer you admission to a school, not in the first position
  2. hardly will you have a school offering 2nd position candidates admission in the first place?


And if you hand over your registration, especially the change of institution, to someone you don't trust, you may not just believe what you see on your papers. You want to confirm, by yourself, the school that eventually stands in the first position.


This post will address this issue and set your mind at rest. Read on!

JAMB Registration Slip is Enough to Confirm this if You Don't Change Institution

If you're a candidate that never changes institutions, the registration slip given to you, at the CBT center that registered you for UTME/DE, is enough to tell you what institution is right at your first choice position.


The registration slip shows your institutions in order of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th choice. On your JAMB profile or in CAPS, it will not be any different.


If however, you've changed institutions lately, go to the next sections.

Change of Institutions/Courses Slip is Enough Confirmation to Know Your First Choice School

Just as the registration slip will detail the exact four choices you made during the UTME registration or two choices during the DE registration, the change of institution slip will detail your previous choices at the top section while the new choices at the lower section of the slip.


Once you have this given to you by the CBT centre or cafe that changed the institution or course for you, this should be enough evidence to confirm which school is in the first position.


However, for those who are not satisfied still, the next guide will never lie.

Check Your First Choice School on the JAMB CAPS

JAMB has given you access to log into your JAMB profile (be it on your phone or computer) to monitor activities on your JAMB CAPS. Here, you will be able to monitor activities such as:


  1. the first choice school in your JAMB
  2. the course that was chosen for the school
  3. the subject combination you wrote for the course
  4. transfer of admission (if any)
  5. marketplace admission (if any)
  6. and so on.


To check for the first choice institution:


  1. Log in to your JAMB profile
  2. On the dashboard, locate and click Check Admission Status
  3. On the resulting page, click Access My CAPS
  4. On the next page, click Admission Status
  5. Here, you will see a page like below.

Or on the CAPS, Click on the link "My Choices"

It shows your choices as follows:


This is where you'll find the school that finally reflects on your JAMB as the first choice. And all schools here are your choices.

    1. You don't need all those derails. Just go to CBT center or JAMB office with your JAMB profile code or JAMB registration number. They will handle the rest.
