2. Do not be in a haste to click “Accept” in your CAPS Profile. It is advised you wait until you have received an admission notification from the institution of your choice and your admission status changes to “ADMITTED”. It is believed that if you click accept without being offered admission, you have accepted a non-existent Admission.
