How To Check Admission Status: One of the most important things for JAMB candidates to do is to check their admission status after sitting the UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) and Post-UTME exams. 

How to Check Admission Status

It has come to our attention that many students are having trouble utilizing their registration numbers to check the status of their admission.

This post is necessary to address this issue because some people are unsure about how to access the admittance checker portal.

What’s More About Jamb Admission Status

Candidates who desire to apply for admission through Direct Entry or UTME for the academic year 2024 and earlier may now see the JAMB Admission Status. 

The best aspect is that applicants can check their admission status on the website for free thanks to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) management.

Sometimes tertiary institutions miss the deadline for posting their admission lists on the website or notice board. Applicants who apply for admission to such institutions must use the JAMB Admission Status Checking Portal to determine if they have been granted admission or not.


How to Check Admission Status

You can keep track of your Jamb admission status by following the steps mentioned below.

1. Go to the JAMB website.

2. Determine the year of your exam

3. To check your JAMB admission status, enter your JAMB registration number.

4. Click “Check Admission Status” to confirm your JAMB admission status.

5. Accept or decline the offer of admission.

The decision to accept or reject the admission offer is now yours. If you choose to accept the offer, you will have to go to the college to complete the admissions process.

6. Use JAMB CAPS to check your admissions status.

Verifying your UTME admission status on the JAMB Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) website is equally important.

This gateway will provide you with more detailed information on your admission status, depending on whether you have been recommended for admission, have been admitted, or if your admission is still pending.

How to Check JAMB CAPS

To check your JAMB CAPS, go to the JAMB website, click the “Admissions” tab, then click the “CAPS” option. Please make sure that your Chrome browser is set to desktop view before attempting to access CAPS. 

In fact, start using it in desktop mode if at all possible.  After selecting the right exam year and providing your JAMB registration number, click “Access my CAPS.” 

As a result, your JAMB CAPS dashboard will display. You can check your admissions standing, choose to accept or reject admission offers and view details about the college and program you have been accepted to attend here.


Jamb Admission Status Reading “Not Yet Admitted”

Still not allowed in? Please be aware of the following if this is the case:

  • To check the upload of your O’level results, sign in to JAMB CAPS.
  • It is imperative to confirm that your O’level results have been placed on the portal because failing to do so could have an impact on your admission status with JAMB.
  • Visit https://www.jamb.org.ng/efacility_ and log in using your JAMB profile information.
  • Choose “Check Admission Status” and “Access my CAPS.”
  • To check if your O’level has been submitted, click “My O’level”. If not, submit your O-level results at any authorized local JAMB CBT center. The status “Awaiting Result” for O’level candidates in CAPS disqualifies them from admission.
  • Verify to see if you have been given the go-ahead to transfer to another program.


Checking your UTME admission status is one of the most crucial processes in the admissions process. By using the procedures outlined above, you can immediately confirm this status and decide whether to accept or reject the admission offer

Keep an eye on the website and the JAMB CAPS portal continuously for updates as admission statuses can change at any time.
