Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has noted that there is a large number of 2019 candidates who have been offered PROVISIONAL ADMISSION BUT ARE YET TO ACCEPT the admission. The board wishes to inform candidates that failure to accept such offers of admission on the CAPS platform would result in the forfeiture of such admissions.
Candidates are also to note that acceptance of admission on any website other than CAPS is not a valid acceptance as any admission not processed and accepted through CAPS is not known to JAMB.
A list containing the names of the affected names is also on display on the Board’s website. Candidates can visit: https://www.jamb.gov.ng/, proceed to menu titled ‘STUDENTS+’, select the submenu “Yet To Accept 2019 Admission.” For ease of checking, we have provided the list of the affected candidates in the document below;
Such candidates are to immediately accept such offers by using the CAPS Mobile App downloaded from the Google Play Store. With the App successfully installed and accessed on their devices, candidates do not need to visit any CBT centre or cyber cafe as doing so would be a violation of the work-from-home/stay-at-home order in place in most parts of the country.
Alternatively, affected candidates who are not sure of their 2019 admission status can check for such from their phones by sending “STATUS 2019” to 55019. However, in the event of any challenges, candidates are to lodge their complaints immediately by using the online ticketing platform at support.jamb.gov.ng under “2019 Admission List Issue”.
Candidates are to note that only those who had accepted their offers of admissions on CAPS and whose names appear on the Provisional Matriculation List are recognised as bona fide students of the various institutions. By implication, if a candidate’s name is not on this published list which will be sent to all tertiary institutions, NYSC and other stakeholders, his/her application for mobilisation in the NYSC scheme, employment, among others, would be declined.
