No fewer than 176,408 candidates will sit for the optional mock UTME on March 30, 2023, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said.
The Board directed the candidates who registered for the optional mock-UTME to proceed to print the notification slips for the examination.
The board explained that the notification slip contained the candidate’s registration number, venue, date and time of the examination.
According to JAMB, this would enable candidates to easily locate their centres before the examination.
In a statement by the Head, Public Affairs and Protocol of JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, the Board said: “All candidates for the Mock-UTME are to visit https://www.jamb.gov.ng., CLICK on 2023 Mock-UTME on the MENU button to print their slips after inputting their Registration Number.
“This directive is only applicable to those candidates, who had indicated interest to take the mock examination.”
The board also reiterated that the scheduled commencement time for the examination was sacrosanct while restating its zero tolerance for examination malpractice.
“In the same vein, candidates are advised against going into the examination halls with prohibited items such as wristwatches, calculators, flash drives, phones, among others.
“They are also warned to desist from the application of “laale” to do fancied drawings and paintings on their hands to avoid unnecessary interference with the whorls of their fingers which could impede biometric verification,” the statement added.
