….176,408 students to take part
On Thursday, March 23rd, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) directed that notification slips for candidates who chose the mock option would be ready for printing.
A total of 176,408 candidates had registered for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination optional mock-UTME scheduled for Thursday, March 30th, 2023.
“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 said in a statement made available to members of the press in Abuja by the board’s Director of Media and Publicity, Dr. Fabian Benjamin.
The board explained that the notification slip contains the candidate’s registration number, venue, date and time of the examination.
This, according to JAMB, would enable candidates to easily locate their centres before the examination.
The board said punctuality was key as candidates are also enjoined to be at their centres one hour before the examination for biometric verification.
The board firmly restated that the scheduled commencement time for the examination is 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.”
