How To Check Candidates’ Admission Status on JAMB CAPS To Accept Or Reject It

JAMB Caps is the Central Admission Processing System provided by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board for candidates expecting admission to be able to access their admission status. This platform helps students to easily accept or reject admission given by the institution of their choice. The new development by JAMB was initiated because of the constant problem of publishing admission lists by some institutions.

The portal is also structured so that once students accept admission, the entrance search is done because the student will no longer be considered for admission by other institutions. But on the other hand, when a student declines the acceptance, it makes such a student’s admission status accessible for admission consideration at other institutions.

Reasons Why One Can Reject An Admission

It may sound strange that some students after going through the struggles of looking for admission end up rejecting the admission. There are certain reasons that will make a student reject an admission. Some of the reasons one can reject JAMB admission are outlined below:

1. Offer of Admission on the Wrong Course

Most time students are offered admission to a course of study that is outside their selected course of study. The student after considering the inability to study the course can decide to reject the course.

2. Financial Challenges

Some students seek admission on the grounds of a believed financial support from relatives. If there is an occurrence of disappointment, such a student will have to reject the admission.

3. Change of Course of Study

A student who decided to have a change of mind on a course can reject admission and wait for next year to apply for the course of his choice.

4. Location of The Institution

This is another factor that can make a student reject an admission through the JAMB Cap platform. This factor is mostly seen when an institution of the second choice offers admission to a student. But the location is a challenge for the student.
