A search is performed on the 8 TeV LHC data for additional scalars and pseudoscalar with masses below the newly discovered higgs boson h(125). These searches are motivated within several BSM theories, most significantly extensions of the non mininal extensions of the MSSM like the NMSSM, where additional scalar and pseudoscalar states are expected. The mass range from 350 MeV to 110 GeV is explored with different final states. The current status of these searches will be reviewed and prospects will be given to extend these searches in the Run2 of the LHC.
