The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said candidates who are yet to receive notification for its Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) may not have indicated interest at the point of UTME registration.

Dr. Fabian Benjamin, Head, Media and Information of the examination board, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) over the weekend in Lagos.

According to NAN, out of 1.9 million candidates who registered for the UTME, which is computer-based, a total of 157,631 indicated interest for the mock as at the close of UTME registration on the 21st of February, 2019.

“We have concluded plans for the conduct of this Mock UTME scheduled to hold on the 1st of April.

“Some candidates have been saying they are yet to receive and print their notification slips for this mock examination. I think that has nothing to do with the board because all those who indicated interest to participate have all been notified.

“Again, some of them might have registered late. However, the examination is optional, and I do not think there is any cause to worry,” Benjamin stated.

The printing of notification slips of the main UTME will commence on the 2nd of April, 2019, while the examination will commence as from the 11th of April, 2019.
