Why is my JAMB CAPS showing Only “Welcome” but Blank?
Many JAMB candidates have been complaining about what they see on their JAMB CAPS portal when trying to check their 2020 JAMB Admission status.
Some say they only see “Welcome” when logged in to their JAMB CAPS Portal and couldn’t see anything else, not even their JAMB Admission status.
If you are one of the candidates facing this kind of challenge, then you should know that your device is the cause of the problem.

In case that doesn’t solve it, you are advised to do the following;
- Change your device
- Use a computer instead of a phone
- If you are using a phone, then browsers like Chrome or Firefox only.
Why is JAMB CAPS Showing “No Admission Given Yet”?
If your JAMB CAPS is showing “No Admission Given Yet”, then it simply means that you have not been given admission yet.
At that point, it is not certain if you will be admitted or not. But all you should know about this message is that your institution has not offered you any admission yet.
Why is My JAMB CAPS Showing Not Admitted?
Many other candidates have been complaining that they only see “Not Admitted” when they checked their Admission status on the JAMB CAPS Portal.
When this happens, the space that your institution and course are supposed to be shown on your JAMB Admission status will be blank.
Seeing “not admitted” on your JAMB status simply mean that the institution you applied for has not given you admission. At this point, your chances of gaining admission into that very institution is very narrow.
Why is my JAMB CAPS Showing Admission in Progress?
Other candidates have been complaining that they only see “Admission In progress” when they checked their 2020 JAMB Admission status on the JAMB CAPS Portal.
If your JAMB CAPS is showing “Admission In progress”, then that is a simple notification to tell you that JAMB has received your name as one of the candidates that have been selected for admission.
But the reason for the delay is because JAMB will have to confirm if your school followed the JAMB Admission rules/principle in giving you the admission.
At that point, there’s a high assurance that you will be admitted. So just wait for JAMB to complete their checking and make sure you keep on checking your status.
Why is my JAMB CAPS not Showing institution and Course?
When your JAMB CAPS institution and course is blank, then it simply means that you have not been offered admission.
At that point, it is better to check your status message to know the exact point that your admission progress is.
Why is my JAMB CAPS Showing Recommended?
Some candidates complained of seeing “Recommended” when they check the 2020 JAMB Admission status on the JAMB CAPS Portal.
If you are one of the candidates whose JAMB admission status is showing “Recommended” on their JAMB CAPS, then you should know that the message is almost the same as “Admission in Progress”.
“Recommended” on JAMB CAPS simply means that JAMB has received your name as one of the candidates selected for admission.
But the reason for the delay is because JAMB wants to confirm if your school followed the laid down rules/principle in giving you the admission.
What Does it Mean When JAMB CAPS shows “Congratulations, you’ve been offered Admission”?
