The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has announced a new date for the commencement of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations.
The board in a statement signed by its Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, yesterday that the examination earlier scheduled to commence on April 29, would now start on April 25, 2023.
He also said the board would hold its rescheduled mock-UTME on April 18, 2023.
Benjamin said, “JAMB had earlier conducted its 2023 Mock-UTME on Thursday, March 30, in 725 centres across the country,” but the exercise ran into some technical hitches.
He said candidates who were present and screened for the examination but could not sit for it had been rescheduled to retake the mock examination on April 18
Benjamin, therefore, said the result of the candidates who successfully took the mock examination on March 30, had been released.
He also said the board had brought forward the conduct of its 2023 UTME which was earlier scheduled to hold from Saturday, April 29, to Tuesday, April 25.
He said the adjustment in the date of the UTME was to accommodate some other major and critical national assignments.
Yet another factor is the need to accommodate those institutions with stable academic calendar to resume as scheduled,” he added.
