This is a notice to all those who are still confused as to the difference between admission on JAMB CAPS and the one on school portal that we have provided the answer here in this post.

These are questions and concerns that has been raised by many persons who may have seen their admission on JAMB CAPS portal but not yet on the school portal or website, they are still seeing Not admitted, No admission is given yet or Admission still in progress.

Have you not checked your jamb admission status? See How To check JAMB Admission Status.

Difference Between JAMB Admission and School Admission

Is JAMB admission list same thing with school admission list? YES. if you are offered admission on JAMB CAPS portal, definitely you will be offered admission as well on the school portal. So, to answer it simply, there is no difference. Why? Let us consider how the admission processes are been handled.

Stage 1. People will register for Jamb during Jamb registration and all they details will be stored on Jamb website concerning the school and course they chose during registration .

Stage 2. When the time for Postume comes, JAMB will then compile the names of those that applied in each school and send them to each of the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education involved.

Stage 3. Each school will then use those names and conduct Post UTME or screening as the case may be.

Stage 4. Schools will now compile the names of those that perform well in they screening which they have considered for admission or have given admission and send it to JAMB for uploading on their portal..

Last Stage. JAMB will now upload the admission list sent to them by the school on their portal so that candidates can be able to print their admission letter.

Those are the steps involved in given admission which in essence means that if you are offered admission first either by your school or on JAMB CAPS portal; There are the same admission provided the one offered by your school was checked and seen on the school portal.

Is It JAMB that gives admission or the school? JAMB don’t give admission, but rather send names to school for admission.

Hope you are now clear on your doubts, do you still have more question?  Comment it below and I will try and respond as soon as I can.

  1. So when you said jamb send names of candidates to school for admission, why did some now say Jamb will confirm if a student meet up with the course requirement before admitting them

  2. Hello sir!
    If you’ve done your school putme and you later applied for jamb change your course, so would the school consider the new course changed or the old one?
    (eg: I applied for medicine via jamb and school putme, then I later changed to pharmacy). Please which of these courses would be considered?

      • Good day to you. Please, there is an issue at hand. Jamb offered my admission to my brother 10th April, 2020 to KWASU which he accepted immediately cause we’ve been checking and it’s saying admission is being processed. Then, going to the school portal we saw admission closed for 2020/2021 that they’ve done matric earlier before April. Any solution on this? Thanks!

    • Hello Johnson, that’s the one jamb puts it. But I think you were admitted in your first choice institution then you don’t need to do a change of institution. But if you were offered admission in your second choice, then you need to do a change of institution

      Reply
    • If your admission is showing instead of Unijos then that’s the one jamb captured, wait until Ansu offers you admission on they portal before you go and do change of institution

  23. So you mean the more you secure a jamb admission- you could then necessary get admission by candidate’s preferred school of choice…you know there re some people who failed to secure admission by the university they choose despite being admitted by jamb..???

    Reply
    • If school did not consider one for admission, Jamb will not upload the Person’s Admission. Though Sometimes i think there use to be a mistake in either of they part but its very rare.

  24. My questions here’s:-
    1- Is there any possibility of securing admission- for a candidate who got admitted in jamb portal but being denied by candidate’s preferred school of choice…
    2- Or consequentely being denied by jamb but possibly fortunate to be admitted by candidate’s preferred school of choice…??
    3- Or that admission by candidate’s preferred school of choice is all that will finally matters..??
