JAMB, which stands for Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, is a Nigerian entrance examination board that conducts exams for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The JAMB Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is an online platform used for the admission process into Nigerian tertiary institutions. Candidates can check their admission status and accept or reject admission offers on the CAPS platform.

Sometimes, candidates may receive an admission offer from JAMB, but the institution they applied to may not offer them admission. In this article, we will explore what happens when JAMB gives a candidate admission, but the institution they applied to does not offer them admission.
