JAMB CAPS 2021/2022: How to ACCEPT or REJECT Admission Offer

What UTME and Direct Entry means? A quick refresher:

UTME stands for Undergraduate Tertiary Matriculation Examination, which evaluates a person’s knowledge in Mathematics, English language and relevant subjects for admission. These are the same three tests administered by JAMB during their Secondary School Certificate Examinations (SSCE).

Direct Entry is where you’re admitted straight into a particular course of study without undergoing National Youth Service Corps or any form of the screening exam. Some courses may not have this option so it pays off to do your research beforehand! Regardless if you go to post-secondary education through CAPS or via direct entry process, remember there are always pathways to success!

For 2020/2021, JAMB is implementing a new CAPS system that requires all admissions to be made online. All candidates should visit the JAMB website or download an app for their mobile device and log in with your School ID number to check whether you have been admitted into any university of college so far.

This new system will make it easier for you to search and apply to your desired college or university. Now, instead of waiting hours in line at a particular institution’s booth, prospective students can be matched with their top choice universities through the JAMB CAPS Admissions Process online portal. Moreover, this process is able to empower individuals by enabling them with information about available choices within different tertiary institutions as well as which programs they are eligible for based on qualifications such as age or state residency status!

Combine all these great benefits with easily retrievable data from which one can make decisions or research what is happening in education now- there’s no turning back!

When JAMB is ready with your results, you will be notified by email which contains the link to access your result in a secure mode. You can either accept or reject the admission offer from institutions of choice after checking and verifying if your JAMB CAPS 2020/2021 result is accurate.


– You are not obliged to accept admission offers from more than one institution, but you can only reject an offer if it’s longer than a week ‍after you’ve gotten your JAMB CAPS 2020/2021 result.

– You are not obliged to accept an admission offer that is lower than the course you applied for ‍OR a higher fee structure, even if it’s from your dream school.
