In most cases, the space for institutions and courses will be empty or blank.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO: This message doesn’t mean you won’t be given admission. It only shows no admission is yet to be given by any school. So Wait for your proposed schools to conduct post UTME or admission screening (if they’ve not). If they’ve already done that, they usually continually send lists to JAMB to upload to students’ pages.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO: Pls Don’t joke with this stage. JAMB may eventually withdraw your admission if you don’t accept the offer. In fact, you won’t be able to print the JAMB admission letter unless you accept the offer. So, accept the offer if you’re ok with that or reject it to give another student space.
