What you should do if your admission status reads ‘Not Admitted’

You may have checked your admission status on the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) portal after we told you that JAMB had opened the platform

CAPS is one of the innovations to admission processing introduced by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for the 2017/2018 admissions process.

Perhaps, you saw NOT ADMITTED as your admission status. It simply means that you have not been offered provisional admission at your institution of choice.

There are various possibilities to that. It may be that your institution had not yet submitted your names to JAMB. Probably, your chosen institution was yet to release its admission list. So, just be patient and check the portal again later. 

If neither of the above applies to you and you are still with the NOT ADMITTED status, that would definitely mean your institution had completed its admission process but didn’t find you qualified based on its parameters for admission. 

What you should do if your admission status reads ‘Not Admitted’

Do not click on the ACCEPT icon until your Admission status changes to ADMITTED. Note that by clicking on the ACCEPT it means you’ve accepted a non-existent Admission.

By the time your desired institution releases its admission list, you will see both “ACCEPT” and “DECLINE” icons.

You are also not allowed to click on the ACCEPT icon until you have received an admission notification from the institution of your choice.

To those who have already clicked on the ACCEPT icon, your action implies that you have agreed and accepted the Course, and Institution Choice, so you won’t be placed in the JAMB proposed CAPS MARKET PLACE.

Candidates should wait for their institution of choice to release its Admission list, which would change their CAPS ADMISSION STATUS from, NOT ADMITTED to ADMITTED, then the choice is yours whether to click on the ACCEPT icon or DECLINE if you don’t want.

But if by then it still shows NOT ADMITTED, you will surely be placed in the CAPS MARKET PLACE i.e waiting for schools that couldn’t meet up with their Admission Quota to admit you on request.

Lastly, for those who have already clicked on the ACCEPT icon, all you could do to help yourself is to keep praying and hoping to get another chance, for you have automatically disqualified yourself from being returned to the CAPS MARKET PLACE if you were not later admitted.
