The Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Mock-UTME) for 2023 has been rescheduled by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
Originally planned for March 16, 2023, the Mock-UTME will now take place on March 30, 2023, due to the change in the date of the gubernatorial and state house of assembly elections.
JAMB spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin, stated that candidates who registered early and indicated their willingness to take the Mock-UTME would be notified of when to print their notification slip, which will contain their centres and other relevant information.
According to Dr Fabian Benjamin, spokesperson for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the Mock-UTME is an optional examination that provides candidates with hands-on experience with the system and allows the Board to assess its readiness for the main UTME. The Mock-UTME, originally scheduled for March 16, 2023, has been rescheduled to March 30, 2023, due to the change in date for the gubernatorial and state house of assembly elections.
The main UTME is scheduled to hold between April 29, 2023, and May 12, 2023, and will feature some groundbreaking innovations aimed at addressing observed infractions and center failures. For instance, if there is a delay of up to one hour before the commencement of a particular session, that session will be canceled and rescheduled along with the candidates. Additionally, no examination can be started one hour after the scheduled commencement time, and candidates must be notified of their new scheduled session or center before they leave their center.
The new regime also makes it mandatory for candidates to spend at least one hour before the submission of responses during the UTME. Finally, candidates will be unable to log in after one hour of activation of the examination.
