The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the postponement of its 2023 mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The examination body, in a statement, revealed that the shift in the schedule of the mock UTME was due to the rescheduling of the 2023 gubernatorial polls by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The statement according to Vanguard reads:

“Candidates, who registered early and indicated their willingness to take the Mock-UTME, would be notified as to when to print their Mock-UTME notification slip, which would contain their centres and other details”.

In the statement issued by the JAMB spokesman Fabian Benjamin, the mock UTME is an optional examination introduced by the board to help give candidates a grasp of what they are to expect at the actual test.

The mock-UTME also helps them properly navigate the computer-based skill in answering questions.

Benjamin said:

“The Board also wants to use this opportunity to announce that this year’s UTME would witness some groundbreaking innovations aimed at addressing observed infractions and centre failures.

“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 the candidates.

“By the same token, no examination can be started one hour after the scheduled commencement time. The session will be scheduled for any vacant or available slot.”
