News Africa: JAMB fixes March 23 for mock exams



JAMB fixes March 23 for mock exams

 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) yesterday said the 2019 mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) would hold on Saturday, 23 March.

Head, Public Affairs, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said in a statement that candidates were expected to print their mock examination ‘Notification Slips’ from tomorrow.

He said the mock examination was introduced in 2017 to give candidates the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the conduct of Computer Based Test, particularly, candidates who were not conversant with the use of computers.

He said “the board would not want any candidate to be at a disadvantage position, hence the introduction of mock examination and other processes that would help the candidates during the examination. The board equally introduced the nine keys without a mouse for candidates to use the computer with ease.”

Also, the board used the mock exercise to ascertain the readiness of its system and to appraise the candidates’ preparedness for the main examination, he said. Culled: Daily Trust
