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.
The Head, Media and Information of the board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made the clarification in an interview with journalist in Lagos.
Reports stated that of about 1.9 million candidates who registered for the 2019 UTME, which is computer-based, a total of 157,631 indicated interest for the mock as at the close of UTME registration on Feb. 21.
We have concluded plans for the conduct of this Mock UTME scheduled to hold on April 1.
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,’’ he said.
Printing of notification slip of the main UTME will begin on April 2, while the examination will start from April 11.
