JAMB UTME Mock Exam Date

JAMB UTME Mock Exam Date Starts February 26: The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) 2019 mock UTME is scheduled for February 26th.

This is to inform all candidates who applied for 2019 JAMB UTME Mock Examination that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released a new date for the conduct of the test. According to the board, 2018 mock UTME will start on February 26th.

The board’s Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, disclosed that a total of 245,753 of the 1,652,795 candidates that registered for this year’s UTME are expected to write the test.

According to him: “We are happy to announce to the public that the board has concluded arrangement for the conduct of the mock UTME, slated for Monday, February 26.

“This is irrespective of the ongoing strike embarked upon by members of non-academic unions of federal universities nationwide.

“Candidates will soon be informed on when to print notifications for the examination and in addition, notifications will be sent through e-mails and text messages on the schedules of their examination,” He said.

Dr Fabian Benjamin said this in an interview, he further stated that the exam is expected to be hitch-free because the board had successfully reduced incidences of malfunctioning of computers by electronically integrating the systems to see their functionality and effectiveness through link tests.

“What this means is that, at the end of the exercise, whatever system that is not seen will not be used for the mock examination. The 2018 exercise sold a total of 1, 966,918 candidate generating profiles.”

“In previous examinations, this number of candidates would have paid for the forms but through our efficient and effective system of ensuring that candidates do not waste resources, we decided to introduce the profile generating regime.

“By this method, candidates will first have to generate personal profiles before proceeding to obtain pins, in between which they are open to deciding whether to go ahead to pay for the registration documents or otherwise,” Benjamin explained.

The main UTME is expected to hold nationwide from March 9 to March 17.
