The 2023 Mock-UTME, which was originally set for Thursday, March 16, 2023, has been moved to Thursday, March 30, 2023, by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
Candidates who enrolled early and expressed their intent to take the Mock-UTME will be advised when to print their Mock-UTME notification slip, which would contain their centers and other details, according to JAMB spokesman Fabian Benjamin in a statement.
The Mock-UTME is an optional test that the Board created to give candidates a chance to practice using the system and to give the Board a chance to assess its own readiness and that of its partners for the Main UTME, which is scheduled to take place between April 29 and May 12, 2023.
The statement reads, “The Board also wants to use this opportunity to announce that some ground-breaking innovations will be implemented for this year’s UTME to address identified infractions and center failures.
For instance, under the new system, a session would be canceled and rescheduled with the applicants if there was a delay of up to an hour before it was supposed to begin.
Likewise, no examination may begin more than an hour beyond its planned start time. The meeting will take place in any AVAILABLE or VACANT time window. Before leaving their center, applicants are required by the Board to be informed of their new scheduled session or location, as applicable. Additionally, during the UTME, no candidate would be permitted to wait less than one hour before submitting their responses. Similar to this, the new system would prevent candidates from logging in after one hour.
“Candidates should not panic if an exam session is postponed or cancelled for whatever reason; they will simply be scheduled for the following session, which may be on the same day. Such applicants are required to silently exit the room and proceed to the holding area where they will wait for further instructions.
Candidates should be aware that any rescheduled exams are solely intended to serve individuals whose original exam session was canceled for one reason or another, not those who received a LATE or ABSENT mark for that session.
