The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has rolled out things that 157,631 candidates scheduled to sit for the 2019 Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) across the country, tomorrow, Monday, April 1 are expected to observe.
The Head of the Media and Information in the Board, Fabian Benjamin, told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview today, Sunday that all the candidates are expected to adhere strictly to all the rules guiding the test.
“I want to say that we are fully set to conduct the mock examination, which is scheduled to hold tomorrow, Monday across some centres nationwide.
“We will also like to appeal to candidates to ensure that they get to their various centres early enough for the necessary accreditation.
“No excuse for lateness will be entertained from any candidate, as the board takes this examination as seriously as the main UTME.
“All candidates must also ensure that they do their biometrics as failure to do this will mean no examination for such candidates.
“They are also expected not to access the examination hall with all the barred items by the JAMB, such as wrist watches, handsets and others.”
He said that the date for the conduct of the UTME proper would commence on April 11.
Tthe mock test is being conducted mainly to test run facilities at the various accredited centres nationwide, as well as familiarise candidates with the process.
Over 1.8 million candidates had registered for the 2019 UTME.
