The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it will examine 176,408 candidates in its 2023 mock examination scheduled to hold on March 30.
JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, announced this in a statement yesterday in Abuja.
Benjamin said the board had also directed candidates who registered for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) optional Mock-UTME that their notification slips would be ready for printing as from Thursday.
Benjamin said the board had also reiterated that the scheduled commencement time for the examination remained sacrosanct as there would be zero tolerance for malpractice.
The JAMB spokesman advised candidates against going into the examination halls with prohibited items, such as wristwatches, calculators, flash drives, phones, among others.
