This is to bring to your notice that the JAMB CAPS 2021/2022 login portal has been opened for students who participated in the unified tertiary and matriculation examination. We are going to educate you on what to do about it.
There was a day I came up with a question in a Whatsapp group. I asked a candidate if he has checked his admission status on caps.
To my greatest surprise, he returned the question to me saying he didn’t know what it means. If you don’t know anything about it you are at the right place.
What is JAMB CAPS All About?
The abbreviation stands for (Central Admission Processing System), the usage of this portal is to regulate and also narrow the rate of admission fraud.
We have some set of fraudsters who pretend to work at the jamb office and they use that to fool candidates.
Don’t be deceived by anyone who tells you he will help you get your admission approval.
If you’re a victim of this kindly stay away from such people because all they need is your money.
What can you do on the JAMB CAPS portal?
1. Accepting and Rejecting Admission Offers
Here you are given the privilege to decide whether to proceed with your registration or terminate it due to one reason or the other.
There is a possibility of being offered admission to a course you didn’t pick during registration or a course you are not willing to study probably because of your Post Utme score or O’level subject combination. As a result of this, you might be willing to decline the offer.
If you’ve been successfully offered admission it is highly advisable to claim it. Follow the steps below.

“it is important to upload your O’level result before admission list is being released.”

Unlike before when your result will only be sent to the institution you elect. Now Jamb has enabled students to get admitted into schools they didn’t pick during enrollment.
At the market area, you might be considered, and don’t forget to edit change after.
Here are some questions students keep asking concerning the above topic. If you have any questions bothering you feel free to ask by dropping them In the comment box.
Does JAMB CAPS admission means have been admitted to my institution?
Accepting the offer does not mean you have been admitted, it simply implies that you have accepted to be considered for admission by the institution.
Is it compulsory to accept my admission through caps?
Yes, it is. If you don’t, then that admission is not legitimate.
What happens if I reject the offer?
Your school will be notified, and your admittance will be terminated.
How To Check JAMB 2021 CAPS
Access the efacility portal at caps.jamb.gov.ng/app_candidates admission status and login with your details.
If it is telling you incorrect or wrong password, kindly reset your password via email.
After logging in, click on CHECK ADMISSION STATUS.
Then access the CAPS portal from there by entering your JAMB registration number (make sure you selected the correct year on your dashboard).
Why is JAMB CAPS showing admission in progress?
The answer to this is quite simple, the system is currently processing your admission and when it has been fully processed and verified you will see the offer on your dashboard.
There’s no need to panic as this is a sign of hope that you are getting admitted very soon.
What Does not admitted mean in JAMB CAPS?
It means that JAMB has not received any admission offered to you, you may have been offered one by an institution but it will take some time before it reflects on your admission status.
Is JAMB CAPS still giving Admission?
Let it be known unto you that JAMB is not the one that offers or gives admission. It is the institution that you applied for that can give you admission.
Some weeks or months after you have been given admission by an educational institution in Nigeria, JAMB will start working on it.
There is no exact deadline for this but you should regularly check your CAPS profile.
How do I know if JAMB gave me Admission?
Not everyone is going to get an email saying that they have been offered admission to study this course or another in a particular University, polytechnic, or college of education.
Just as I have said before, you should often check your UTME/DE CAPS profile.
What is Transfer Approval in JAMB CAPS?
This section is meant for those that their course was changed. They were offered admission to study a course different from the one they chose in JAMB.
This happened to me in 2019 and you can see a screenshot of my dashboard below.
You will need to either approve or reject the transfer which is very easy to do. If you approved it, you will need to do a change of course (visit any Cafe for this) before you can be able to print out your 2021 JAMB admission letter.
If your school has offered you a provisional admission, I hereby advise you to claim it to make you qualify for the printing of your JAMB admission letter and proceed with any other registration.
It will take you less than a minute to share this article with your friends, may God bless you as you do so.
