The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) at the end of its management meeting which was held on Tuesday, December 20th, 2022, rolled out some dates for its major activities in 2023.
Following that, the Board has approved the commencement of registration for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) from Saturday, January 14th to Tuesday, February 14th, 2023.
This date, however, does not include registration for Direct Entry (DE) application documents as the DE registration would be commencing from Monday, February 20th to Thursday, April 20th, 2023.
The Board also fixed Thursday, March 16th, 2023, for the conduct of its optional mock UTME for participants of the examination.
Candidates who wish to take part in the lock examination are to note that they would be required to pay the sum of N1000 as service charge for CBT centres for the conduct of the mock examination at the point of registration so as to prevent a situation where candidates would indicate their interest to sit the mock-UTME leading the various centres to commit human and material resources only for them to stay away on the day of the examination.
The new arrangement ensures that candidates indicate their interest by paying for the mock at the point of UTME registration, therefore, precluding the centres from incurring any loss whether candidates turn up or not.
Also, the Board, after considering its other commitments, fixed Saturday, April 29th, 2023, for the conduct of the 2023 UTME, which is expected to end on Monday, May 12th, 2023.
The Board advises all candidates, who desire to register for the 2023 UTME to immediately embark on the creation of their respective profiles (creation of profile code) ahead of the formal commencement of the registration exercise to avoid being caught up in any ensuing bottleneck that may unfold.
