The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced a new date for the commencement of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, JAMB, disclosed this in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday.
Benjamin said the UTME which was earlier scheduled to commence on April 29, would now start on April 25, 2023. Additionally, he noted that the board would hold its rescheduled mock UTME on April 18, 2023.
“It would be recalled that JAMB had earlier conducted its 2023 Mock-UTME on Thursday, March 30 in 725 centres across the country.
“However, the exercise ran into some technical hitches in some centres, thereby denying some candidates the opportunity to sit for the examination.
“The board’s mock examination was designed for the purpose of testing its preparedness and that of its partners for the UTME as well as give prospective candidates the opportunity to have hands-on experience of the CBT test environment.
“It is, therefore, in order to give those candidates, who were unable to sit for 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, April 18,” he said.
He said that candidates who were present and screened for the examination but could not sit for it had been rescheduled to retake the mock examination on April 18.
Benjamin, therefore, said the result of the candidates who successfully took the mock examination on March 30, had been released.
