The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has adjourned the previously scheduled 2023 mock unified tertiary matriculation examination (Mock-UTME) from March 16 to March 18, 2023.
It was gathered that the board was forced to postpone the examination because of a slight change in the date for the governorship and state house elections, which were supposed to be held last week on Saturday, March 11, 2023, but were later shifted to March 18, 2023, due to BVAS issues.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB spokesman, revealed this in his statement on Monday in Abuja and said candidates who applied for the mock-UTME during the JAMB registration would be notified when the printing of the mock-UTME notification slip will commence.
He further elucidated that the mock UTME exam is never mandatory for all the candidates who applied for JAMB but was introduced by the board to check the candidates’ and board’s readiness for the upcoming main UTME exams, which are scheduled to be held between April 29 and May 12, 2023.
However, Benjamin also announced some new innovations for this year’s main UTME exam.
“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. The Board has made it mandatory that candidates must be notified of their new scheduled session or center, as the case may be, before they leave their center. In addition, no candidate would be allowed to spend less than one hour before the submission of responses during the UTME.
“If for any reason, an examination session is cancelled or cannot hold, candidates are not to panic as they will simply be scheduled for the next available session, which could be that same day. What such candidates are expected to do is to quietly leave the hall and move to the Holding Area to await further instruction,” he stated.
“Candidates are to note that any rescheduled examination is strictly meant to accommodate only those whose examination session could not hold on account of one reason or another, not for those who were marked LATE or ABSENT for their session,” he said
