JAMB has said a total of 160,617 candidates will be taking part in its mock unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) which is scheduled to hold on June 3. The examination will be conducted at the approved 802 computer-based centres (CBT) located in 104 designated examination towns across the country.
This was made known by JAMB’s head of public affairs and protocol unit, Fabian Benjamin on Monday. He advised all candidates who had registered for the examination and indicated interest to sit the mock examination to reprint their notification slips.
Meanwhile, it was also revealed that one week after the extension of the deadline for registration, only additional 200,000 candidates comprising both the UTME and direct entry candidates have been registered.
According to JAMB, a total of 124,519 candidates, who have indicated interest to register for the examination and had procured profile codes, are yet to obtain the required registration pins.
Mr Fabian enjoined interested prospective candidates not to wait till the last minute to register for the examination, saying the body would no longer consider an adjustment to its calendar.
