Those whose status shows admitted have been offered provisional admission by the school they choose in JAMB, while those showing Not admitted or Admission in progress are still currently waiting for admission.

There are 2 prominent ways to check your Admission status;

  • JAMB CAPS (recommended)
  • Through your School Student’s Portal

I only recommend using JAMB CAPS because accepting or Rejecting the admission offered to you have a time frame (deadline), so if you don’t accept the admission within this time, you risk loosing the admission.

But this do not mean, you should only check your Admission status through JAMB CAPS, my recommendation is, you check Admission status on JAMB CAPS first and then move on to your School’s Website to check again.

In summary, make sure you use the two methods I will be showing you here today.
