Abstract: In this paper we give a classification of admissible nilpotent orbits of the noncompact simple exceptional real Lie groups of inner type. We use a lemma of Takuya Ohta and some information from the work of Dragomir Djoković to construct a simple algorithm which allows us to decide the admissiblity of a given orbit.
