The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Sunday, fixed a new date for the start of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).
A statement signed by its Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in Abuja, said the UTME which was earlier scheduled to commence on April 29, would now start on April 25, 2023.
He also said the board would hold its rescheduled mock-UTME on April 18, 2023.
”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 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.
