Temitope Mustapha, Abuja
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced a new date for the commencement of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
In a statement issued on Sunday by the Head of Public Affairs and Protocol of JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said the UTME which was earlier scheduled to commence on 29th April will now start on 25th April, 2023.
The statement obtained by PlatinumPost in Abuja also said that JAMB would hold its rescheduled mock UTME on 18th April 2023.
According to the statement, “The Board has brought forward the conduct of its 2023 UTME which was earlier scheduled to hold from Saturday, 29th April 2023- Tuesday, 25th April, to Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023.
It would be recalled that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had earlier conducted its 2023 Mock-UTME on Thursday, 30th March 2023, in 725 centres across the country. However, the exercise ran into some technical hitches in some centres thereby denying some candidates the opportunity to sit the examination.”
