The JAMB 2018 CAPS Admission status checker portal where candidates can login profiles to either accept or reject admission has been activated. This post will show you how to check your first and second choice admission status on JAMB CAPS Portal.
JAMB Set Oct.16 Deadline to Accept/Reject Admission
The Head, Media and Information of the JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin on October 8th made the announcement below;
“We have so far offered no fewer than 200,000 first choice admissions to candidates.
” To this effect therefore, we are urging candidates to go to our site and check their admission status and those who have been offered such admission should quickly indicate by accepting and printing such offer, as failure to do so will automatically mean the candidate is no longer interested.
“And therefore, the board may see all such offers as rejected and would have no option than to mop them up and give it to other interested candidates.
“Candidates are to accept or reject all offers not later than Oct.16 as that is when all offers of admissions of first choice will close.
“After that, we will commence admission exercise for the second choice of candidates,” Benjamin said.
About JAMB CAPS Portal
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is geared towards ensuring quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process.
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.’
The system is such that institutions can only admit those who meet their cut off points. If a candidate fails to meet the cut off mark, that student would certainly be denied admission irrespective of the candidate’s connection.
