Due to technical issues, JAMB has changed the date for the mock exam of the 2023 UTME to 18th April 2023. Furthermore, the main examination will now take place between 25th April and 2nd May 2023. These adjustments have been made to accommodate other national assignments and public examinations, ensuring a seamless process for all candidates.

Rescheduled UTME Mock Exam:
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) had scheduled the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) mock examination to take place on Thursday, 30th March 2023. However, technical glitches in some centres disrupted the smooth conduct of the examination, depriving some candidates of the opportunity to participate. In light of this, JAMB has made the decision to reschedule the mock examination to Tuesday, 18th April 2023, in order to provide a level playing field for all candidates.

The purpose of the mock examination is to assess JAMB’s preparedness for the UTME and to provide prospective candidates with a practical experience of taking the examination in a computer-based test (CBT) environment. The mock examination is an important part of the preparation process for candidates, as it helps them to familiarize themselves with the CBT mode of examination, which is the format used for the actual UTME. Through the mock examination, candidates can become accustomed to the CBT process, which can reduce anxiety and improve performance on the actual UTME.
JAMB recognizes the importance of conducting a successful and seamless UTME, which is why the board has taken proactive measures to ensure that the mock examination is rescheduled for candidates who were unable to participate due to the technical difficulties encountered in some centres. The board remains committed to ensuring that all candidates have an equal opportunity to showcase their knowledge and skills in the UTME, and is working tirelessly to provide a conducive environment for the examination.

In a bid to ensure that no citizen is denied the opportunity to carry out their civic duties, the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has made a significant change to the date for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME). The UTME was initially scheduled to take place on Saturday, 29th April 2023, but has now been rescheduled to hold from Tuesday, 25th April to Tuesday, 2nd May 2023.
The decision to bring forward the main UTME date was made to accommodate other major and critical national assignments that are also scheduled to take place around that time. By changing the date for the UTME, JAMB is demonstrating its commitment to ensuring that no citizen is hindered from carrying out their civic responsibilities due to the clash in schedule.
