How to Check Your JAMB Admission Status
for the 2022/2023 Year

Check Your JAMB Admission Status

You've finished your exams. You've submitted your college applications. The only thing left to do is wait, but what are you waiting for, exactly? Where should you be checking your admissions status? How will you know if you've gotten into your dream school?

Let's talk about JAMB.

What is JAMB?

JAMB is the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board of Nigeria. You might recognize it as the organization behind your college entrance exam, but it's recently developed a system that's even more relevant to prospective undergrads: the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS).

CAPS was created to bring order to the admissions process. It basically takes all of your admissions data, stores it, organizes it, and presents it back to you. It also receives updates on your admissions status from the colleges that you've applied to, so when you're waiting for good news, this is the platform that will deliver it.

Understanding How JAMB Works

JAMB and its systems have completely overhauled the way that college admissions are processed in Nigeria. Despite this, or maybe because of it, there are some misconceptions about how it works.

The most important thing to know is that JAMB doesn't accept or reject applications on behalf of colleges. If you've ever heard someone say "JAMB didn't give me admission," they're operating on a misunderstanding. JAMB is not a university, so there's no way to get "in" to it. It also has no control over colleges and which students that they accept.

What does JAMB actually do? You can think of it as a conduit. Using its CAPS system, it connects students who want to hear from colleges and colleges that want to get in touch with students. It's a digital link that keeps everyone informed about what everyone else is doing.

How to Check Your JAMB Admissions Status

JAMB has updated its admissions results for the 2020/2023 academic year. If you've applied, you can log in and see if you've been accepted by your chosen schools

Here's the basic process for checking on JAMB admissions:

  • Go to
  • Click the E-facility page, and scroll down the various links until you reach "Check Admission Status."
  • If you haven't already, you'll need to create an account. This requires an email address, a phone number, and a security question. It doesn't require any other personal information. After you've created an account, you'll be sent a confirmation code to verify your email address.
  • Once you have an account, go back to "Check Admissions Status" and log in. You'll be prompted to choose your exam year and to enter your JAMB registration number.
  • Click the confirmation button and find out your admission results.

That's it! If you made it into your chosen university, congratulations!

Sharing Your JAMB Admissions Results

If you need to confirm your college admission with your workplace or any other institution, you can print your results. The options are on the E-facility page. They include "Print Result Slip" for your JAMB admissions status and "Admission Letter Printing" for your actual acceptance letter from the school. Be aware that both services have a fee of ₦1,000.

Troubleshooting With JAMB

While JAMB is largely seen as an efficient system, there can and have been issues with students accessing their admission data or status. Here are just a few common problems with JAMB and how to resolve them.

You've forgotten your JAMB registration number. If this happens, there's an option on the E-facility page called "Retrieval of Registration Number." You'll need to enter your name, birthday, state of origin, and personal PIN or serial number. It costs ₦1,000.

Your personal information is wrong on your acceptance letter or admission status notification. Maybe you accidentally entered it incorrectly, or maybe there have been changes in your life since you first applied to school. Either way, you'll need to click "Correction of Data" on the E-facility page. It'll cost ₦2,500, and it'll allow you to update your name, birthday, gender, or state or local government.

You haven't received your admission status even though JAMB has officially released them all. It's rare, but JAMB can make clerical errors. Contact them by phone or email to ask what's happened to your application. In the meanwhile, check and see if your chosen schools have released their own admission lists. If you see your name there, your JAMB acceptance will come soon; positive results on one mean positive results on the other. You will never be accepted by JAMB but rejected by the school or vice versa.

JAMB Admission Status in 2022

College hopefuls around the country have been waiting with bated breath for their JAMB admission status. The results have finally been released, so it's just a matter of checking the portal, figuring out your status, and seeing where the future will take you.

Good luck!
