The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed April 11 for the commencement of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). The examination is expected to hold for about a week across the country.
The board also said the mock examination which was earlier scheduled to hold on March 23 will now hold April 1.
The mock examination is optional and is only meant to prepare interested candidates for the main examination. It does not in any way add to the grades for the main examination.
The main JAMB examination was expected to begin on March 16 and end on March 23 at JAMB’s computer-based test centres nationwide, but the postponement of the general elections affected the dates.
After the initial postponement of the main examination, no new date was announced until April l1 commencement date was announced on Wednesday.
However, the mock exam which was scheduled to hold on March 23 is now being postponed allegedly because of supplementary elections in some states scheduled for March 23.
