Understanding JAMB’s Responses

  • Congratulations: If you receive a “CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE BEEN OFFERED PROVISIONAL ADMISSION” message, you can proceed to accept or reject the offer.
  • Admission in Progress: This means you have been recommended for admission and only undergoing processing. With admission in progress, consider yourself admitted. Just keep checking back and see the notification change to congratulations; you have been admitted.

Next Step for Candidates Admitted on the JAMB Portal

Successfully admitted candidates are advised to:

What to do if Your JAMB Admission Status shows ‘Not Yet Admitted’

Not Yet admitted? If yes, please take note of the following:

Login into JAMB CAPS to verify your O’level result upload.

It’s important to verify whether your O’level result has been uploaded on the JAMB portal or not, as failure to upload your O’level result can affect your JAMB admission status.

  1. Log in to your JAMB profile (
  2. Click on ‘Check Admission Status,
  3. Click on ‘Access my CAPS
  4. Click on ‘My O’level’ to confirm if your O’level is uploaded. If not, visit any nearby accredited JAMB CBT centre to upload your O’level result. Admission cannot be processed for candidates whose O’level status in CAPS indicates ‘Awaiting Result’.

Based on the JAMB CAPS implementation policy, institutions have the right to consider some candidates for transfer from the choice programme to another programme because of UTME and O’level combinations.

Candidates are expected to monitor their admission by following the instructions a-c above, then click the ‘Transfer Approval’ link to know if they are recommended for transfer to another program. You are required to either accept or reject this transfer consideration. If you accept, your first-choice institution will be able to admit you to the new program. If you reject, you will remain in your preferred Course / Program. Therefore, the program transfer will not be effected.

You applied for the JAMB UTME with awaiting results.

Candidates who used ‘awaiting result’ during their registration are to upload their O’Level result on the JAMB portal so that their institution of choice will process their admission. To avoid disqualification, direct-entry candidates, including JUPEB students, should also upload their A’level and O’level results. This is to enable the screening officers to determine their qualifications for admission. Recommended: How to Upload O’Level Result on JAMB Portal / Profile.


Navigating the JAMB Admission Status portal can be straightforward if you follow these steps. Remember, it’s essential to regularly check the portal for updates and take necessary actions based on your admission status. Good luck!
