Jamb has admitted some of the hitches experienced by candidates during the 2023 Mock UTME Examination in 725 centers across the nation.

The Board has apologized to the affected candidates, stating that the exercise witnessed some hitches in a few centers with some candidates unable to sit for the examination

In a statement, the Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, JAMB, Fabian Benjamin said that the candidates will be rescheduled to sit for the examination at a date to be announced later at no cost to them.

He further stated that the Board would look at all issues thrown up by the mock exercise and act accordingly for a better and enhanced exercise.

The introduction of the Mock-UTME by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board is aimed at providing the Board with the opportunity to assess innovations that would be used for the main examination as well as allow candidates to have hands-on experiences on the CBT environment.

The exercise, which was introduced over six years ago, has availed the Board a unique opportunity to test innovations that have significantly improved on the Board’s ability to deliver world-class assessment exercise.

It would be recalled that before the conduct of the 2023 exercise, the Board revealed that it would be introducing some new measures that had never been used before and would want to use the opportunity of the mock exercise to assess their functionality.
