My JAMB CAPS Portal Is Showing Welcome Page

I can’t find “Admission Status” on my JAMB CAPS portal, what do I do?

If your JAMB CAPS portal is showing Welcome and there is nothing like Admission status, there is no need to worry.

It means that your browser is showing the mobile version of JAMB CAPS portal 2021 page. All you need to do it to switch to desktop site.

If you are using Chrome browser, click on the menu(3 dots) at the top right corner. From the menu list, you will find “Request desktop site” unmarked. Click on it to tick the box.

Once you do this, the “Admission status” will be visible at the left side of your browser. That is the caps.jamb.gov.ng/app_candidates admission status page.

4. Finally, reload the new link by pressing the Okay buttons on your phone. The page will change to the admission status page.

5. Click on the search beside the box containing your registration number

6. The admission status will be revealed to you.


1. Once you accept the admission, your admission for that year is closed as you will no longer be available for other schools’ admission consideration. On the other hand, if you reject the admission, you become available to other schools who have free admission slots for admission consideration.

2. DO NOT click on ACCEPT until your page shows “Congratulations, you have been offered admission…

3. If you meet the cut off mark for your school but it is still saying NOT ADMITTED, all you have to do is to close your browser and check back latter.

4. If your portal read “admission in progress, check back later“, it means your school  has released the admission list to JAMB CAPS but and will soon change to ADMITTED

I Mistakenly Clicked On Accept When My Portal Says NOT ADMITTED

The Joint Admissions And Matriculation Board (JAMB) has advised candidates to not ACCEPT their admission offer until in changes to admitted on caps.jamb.gov.ng/accept admission.

So far, we haven’t found this to be an issue. The real issue is when you mistakenly accept an admission offer for a school you don’t like. As I stated earlier, your admission for that year is closed.
