JAMB Fixes New Date For 2023 UTME As Rescheduled Mock-UTME Holds Tuesday



Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has announced a new date for the commencement of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME),

While also announcing that the rescheduled mock-UTME would now hold on 18th April 2023 for candidates who were unable to sit for the optional examination, the Board added that results of candidates who were able to sit for the mock examination on 30th March 2023 has been released.

A statement signed by JAMB’s Head, Public Affairs and Protocol ( AD/PAP), Dr. Fabian Benjamin on Sunday in Abuja, solicited for understanding in the delivery of its mandate, adding that the Board would continue to partner with relevant agencies of government to ensure its candidates get the best.

The statement reads: “It would be recalled that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had earlier conducted its 2023 Mock-UTME on Thursday, 30th March, 2023, 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 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 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, 18th April, 2023.

“Similarly, candidates who were present and screened for the examination but could not sit the examination have been rescheduled to retake the mock examination on Tuesday, 18th April, 2023.

“In the meantime, the result of the candidates who successfully took the mock examination on 30th March, 2023, has been released.

“Also, the Board has brought forward the conduct of its 2023 UTME which was earlier scheduled to hold from Saturday, 29th April, 2023, to Tuesday, 25th April, to Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023.

“The adjustment in the date of the UTME is to accommodate some other major and critical national assignments. By so doing, the Board hopes that no citizen would be denied the opportunity of exercising their civic responsibilities.

“It should be noted that 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. Yet another factor is the need to accommodate those institutions with stable academic calendar to resume as scheduled.”
