Jamb Reschedule UTME Mock, to Hold March 30th
The 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) mock which was originally scheduled for this Thursday, has moved to March 30 by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
JAMB spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, in a statement, yesterday, explained: “The shift in date is partly owing to the change in the date for the gubernatorial and state Houses of Assembly elections earlier scheduled to be held on Saturday, March 11, 2023, but now moved to March 18.
He said candidates, who registered early and indicated willingness to take the test, would be notified as to when to print their notification slips containing centres and other details.
The mock is an optional examination introduced by JAMB to provide an opportunity for candidates to have hands-on experience and ascertain the Board’s readiness and that of its partners for the main UTME, held between April 29 and May 12.
Benjamin noted that this year’s examination would witness innovations geared at addressing infractions and centre failures. His words: “For instance, in the new regime, if there is a delay of up to one hour before the commencement of a particular session, that session stands cancelled and would be rescheduled along with candidates.
“Candidates are to note that any rescheduled examination is strictly meant to accommodate only those whose examination session could not be held due to one reason or the other, and not for those, who were marked late or absent for their session.”
