The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has announced the new date for the rescheduled 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) mock examination. The mock exam will now take place on Tuesday, 18th April, 2023.
Additionally, JAMB has brought forward the conduct of its 2023 UTME. The UTME was initially scheduled to hold from Saturday, 29th April, 2023, but will now take place from Tuesday, 25th April, to Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023.
|Rescheduled Mock UTME||Tuesday, 18th April, 2023|
|UTME||Tuesday, 25th April, to Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023|
According to a statement from Dr Fabian Benjamin, the Head, Public Affairs and Protocol of the board, the adjustment in the UTME date is to accommodate some other major and critical national assignments.
It is important to note that JAMB had conducted its 2023 Mock-UTME on Thursday, 30th March, 2023, in 725 centres across the country. However, the exercise ran into some technical hitches in some centres, which denied some candidates the opportunity to sit the examination.
The Board’s mock examination was designed for the purpose of testing its preparedness and that of its partners for the UTME. It also gave prospective candidates the opportunity to have hands-on experience of the CBT test environment.
In the statement, Dr Fabian Benjamin said, “It is, therefore, in order to give those candidates who were unable to sit the examination owing to no fault of theirs, the opportunity to take the examination that the mock examination had been rescheduled to hold on Tuesday, 18th April, 2023.
“In the meantime, the result of the candidates who successfully took the mock examination on 30th March, 2023, has been released.
“The adjustment in the date of the UTME is to accommodate some other major and critical national assignments. By doing so, the Board hopes that no citizen would be denied the opportunity of exercising their civic responsibilities.
“The Board will continue to partner with relevant agencies of government to ensure that its candidates get the best. It, therefore, solicits the understanding of all as it delivers on its critical mandate.”
It is important for candidates to stay up to date with information from JAMB and make necessary preparations for the exams. Best of luck to all candidates.
