2018/19 ADMISSION ON JAMB CAPS: A NEW DIMENSION

- 2018/19 ADMISSIONS TO BE GIVEN BY JAMB NOT SCHOOLS.

- DIRECT ENTRY APPLICANTS TO BE CONSIDERED BY JAMB THIS YEAR.

- SECOND CHOICE APPLICANTS SHOULD START CHECKING THEIR ADMISSION STATUS ON CAPS STARTING FROM MONDAY.



1. 2018/19 ADMISSIONS TO BE GIVEN BY JAMB NOT SCHOOLS.

- It's well known to all Nigerian Students who gained admission through JAMB since the inception of UTME/DE that JAMB do consider applicants after which schools too considered by releasing the school admission list.

2018/19 admission is kind of complicated and a nightmare to its applicants considering the new style that JAMB introduced.
Well, if am not mistaken, with all kind of observations and consultations, 2018 admission would be restricted to CAPS alone; schools are not going to release admission lists rather, they would consider who was given admission by JAMB.

For example, Federal University Lafia, ABU Zaria, FedpolyNas and the likes of FUTMinna and others instructed their candidates to check their admission Status on CAPS and if admitted, should accept/reject the offer and a stipulated date for registration/screening was announced by the schools' management.

This is to tell you that lots of schools are not going to release admission list this year nationwide rather, JAMB.

It is at this juncture, that I am advising all Nigerian Applicants who were not admitted yet to kindly be checking their admission status on CAPS as more names would be uploaded and if admitted, kindly know that you are to just wait for school directives for registration and necessary procedures.

Note: JAMB is trying to eliminate any kind of human interference in school admissions.

2. DIRECT ENTRY APPLICANTS TO BE CONSIDERED BY JAMB THIS YEAR.

- It is of the immense effort of JAMB to offer all its candidates both UTME/DE admission that they introduced Direct Entry admission on CAPS even though it’s schools that use to consider D.E applicants for admission before.

That's when D.E admission on CAPS came to existence. JAMB for the first time in history have started giving admission to D.E Applicants just because they are trying to restrict admissions to be given only by JAMB not schools.

D.E Applicants are hereby instructed to be checking their admission status on CAPS as more names would be uploaded on CAPS soon.


3. SECOND CHOICE APPLICANTS SHOULD START CHECKING THEIR ADMISSION STATUS ON CAPS STARTING FROM MONDAY.

- Another new development is that those who applied University, Polytechnic, Monotechnic and College of Education as their 2nd choice will now be considered by JAMB too. JAMB as of the previous years doesn’t use to consider applicants with second choice rather, 1st choice only.

It’s nice and amazing to hear that JAMB set to upload the names of those who applied the aforementioned institutions as their 2nd choice which is never done before.

Those who fall under this category should with immediate effect start checking their admission status on CAPS starting from Monday.
