JAMB CAPS: WHAT DOES ADMISSION IN PROGRESS MEAN?

Students have been worried about their Caps showing Admission in progress for some days now, what does it mean? Why is my Caps even showing Admission in progress and not admitted? My friend Caps is showing admitted but mine is showing AIP and I score more than my friend, why?.

Let's play with this questions briefly.

WHAT DOES ADMISSION IN PROGRESS MEAN?


If you have been checking or just recently checked JAMB CAP and you see admission in progress, do not fidget. There thousands of other students probably having the same issue with you right now. I promise not to bore you with long stories. Right here on this page, I will tell you the meaning of Admission in Progress on JAMB CAP and what you should do about it.

I can tell, you are very nervous about this and mind you, there are thousands of people who instead of seeing Admission in Progress, they saw Not Admitted. Perhaps you are here to know if Admission in Progress will change to Offered Admission or Not Admitted.


WHAT DOES ADMISSION IN PROGRESS MEAN?

According to JAMB, Admission in progress means admission is ongoing and if it is discovered that a candidate does not have the requirements for admission, the notification will disappear. Let me break it down. Admission in progress is simply a way JAMB notifies you that you are currently being screened by the institutions you have chosen.

Of course, I believe you will have an idea of how you are being screened. JAMB score, Post UTME score, JAMB correct subject combinations and O’level subjects combination and grades.

Now you know the meaning of Admission in Progress, you may be wondering how long it will take for Admission in Progress to change to Offered Admission or Not admitted in rare cases.


HOW LONG WILL MY CAPS SHOW ADMISSION IN PROGRESS?

Remember admission into any university in Nigeria, comes out batch by batch. While it may take just a few days to finish up the inhouse screening process, some may even take longer. So it all depends on the school you have chosen. Some candidates waiting for merit list may have to wait longer before the good news. Candidates in the subsequent lists may not wait too long since the school has already kick-started releasing lists.


CAN ADMISSION IN PROGRESS CHANGE TO NOT ADMITTED?

Whenever you see NOT ADMITTED as your admission status. It simply means that you have not been offered provisional admission at the institution you choose and unfortunately, Yes. Admission in progress can be changed to Not Admitted. But why should you even think negatively? Optimism is a talent that works speedily.


I've heard and read from a few candidates who reported that their admission in progress status on CAPS later changed to NOT ADMITTED after waiting a few weeks.


As said earlier, I had not seen this myself but it happens.


The reason for this may include the fact that the school or JAMB has found out that the applicants had not probably 


1. Upload his or her O'level results on the JAMB portal

2. The subjects combination in JAMB was wrong and a series of other anomalies that crop in the admission processes. In fact, a few students never know they're not qualified for the course they're proposing.


WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY CAPS IS SHOWING NOT ADMITTED

Don’t do anything! Do not click on the ACCEPT icon unless your Admission status had changed to ADMITTED. Note that by clicking on the ACCEPT when your status is NOT ADMITTED, it means you’ve accepted a non-existent Admission


But there is still hope. JAMB CAPS is expected to make provision for a ‘market place’ in the JAMB portal where institutions can go and ‘request for students in Nigeria who score their cut off points. So, if for example, UNN denies you admission, EKSU may request for you through JAMB CAP market place.


It is really great that you took your time to read this. Share this post and make comments. If you don't make comments, you're offending me by saying my efforts of getting this details here is meaningless. And I am sure you can't be that blunt.
