My caps was writing admission in progress after few days it started writing not admitted,ve cross-check everything and just recently noticed that jamb filled the date of birth in my Nin instead of using what I wrote in the form earlier. I noticed this recently,
Am working to visit the jamb office soon to correct the mistake are there chances I might get back admission in progress
If you used different dates of birth, then JAMB will take that of your NIN. Your NIN date of birth is not supposed to be different from what u filled in JAMB

My Caps has been changed to Admission in progress since last week Tuesday, did I still have hope or wait till next year
Have 90% hope.
Ok, my case is quite different. Perhaps you have come across such before. I did UNIBEN post UTME, and I had 70.125 as my total aggregate. I choose Dentistry before the post UTME, but a few days after seeing my post UTME result I changed my course to Physiotherapy. Note: I changed my course after post UTME. Everyone chastised me back then that I have violated the school’s policy by changing course after post UTME. And I gave up on the admission. Then a few days ago, I checked my caps only to see “AIP, check back later”. I was glad but now the AIP is stuck, for days though, do you know if I am safe?
Have long has it been on AIP?
Not up to a week now
Then leave it… You have 95% chances of being admitted
