Mock: JAMB issues fresh directives

By Sahed Ibrahim


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has issued new directives to candidates for the rescheduled 2023 optional Mock-UTME holding tomorrow, April 18, 2023 about the exam.

Recall that the Thursday, 30th March mock exam was marred with technical glitches.

Through its Head of Public Affairs and Protocol of the Board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the Board said candidates whose results for the earlier Mock-UTME on March 30 have been released are not eligible for the rescheduled mock examination.

Benjamin directed candidates to visit https://www.jamb.gov.ng to print a slip for the mock examination.

 “The rescheduled (supplementary) Mock-UTME Notification Slip would contain the candidates’ Registration Number, Venue, Date, and Time of the Examination to enable them to easily locate their centres before the examination. Candidates are also enjoined to be at their centres one hour before the examination for biometric verification.

“The Board enjoins candidates to note that the commencement time for the rescheduled examination, as contained in their Notification Slips, is sacrosanct. In addition, the Board also restates its zero tolerance for examination malpractice and urges candidates to refrain from any ignoble act or conduct during the rescheduled examination.

“In the same vein, candidates are advised against going into the examination halls with prohibited items such as wristwatches, calculators, flash drives, and phones, among others.

“They are also warned to desist from the application of “laale” (henna) to do fancied drawings and paintings on their hands to avoid unnecessary interference with the whorls of their fingers, which could impede biometric verification.
