JAMB Announces New Date for 2023 UTME Mock Exam and Change in Exam Dates.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has announced a new date for the rescheduled 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) mock examination.
In a statement released by the Head, Public Affairs and Protocol of the board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, the mock examination will now hold on Tuesday, 18th April 2023.
This is to accommodate some candidates who were unable to sit the examination due to technical hitches during the previous mock examination held on Thursday, 30th March 2023.
Furthermore, JAMB has brought forward the conduct of its 2023 UTME, which was originally scheduled to hold from Saturday, 29th April 2023.
It will now hold from Tuesday, 25th April to Tuesday, 2nd May 2023.
The mock examination was designed to test the preparedness of the board and its partners for the UTME and to give prospective candidates the opportunity to have hands-on experience of the CBT test environment.
JAMB emphasized that it does not have the liberty of shifting forward its examination as other public examinations are billed to commence their exercises in the early part of May, 2023.
Additionally, the board needs to accommodate those institutions with a stable academic calendar to resume as scheduled.
JAMB pledged to continue partnering with relevant agencies of government to ensure that its candidates get the best and solicits the understanding of all as it delivers on its critical mandate.
