The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Sunday announced that the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will now hold start on April 25, 2023. The examination was earlier scheduled to commence Saturday, April 29, 2023.
The board has also rescheduled its mock-UTME to April 18, 2023, after experiencing technical hitches during the previous mock exam on March 30, which denied some candidates the opportunity to sit for the examination. The mock exam was designed to test the board’s preparedness and give prospective candidates hands-on experience of the CBT test environment.
Candidates who were present and screened for the examination but could not sit for it have been rescheduled to retake the mock examination on April 18. The board has released the results of candidates who successfully took the mock examination on March 30.
The adjustment in the date of the UTME is to accommodate some other major and critical national assignments. The board hopes that no citizen will be denied the opportunity of exercising their civic responsibilities. However, the board does not have the liberty of shifting forward its examination as other public examinations are billed to commence their exercises in the early part of May 2023.
JAMB has promised to partner with relevant agencies of government to ensure that its candidates get the best. The board solicits the understanding of all as it delivers on its critical mandate.
