The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will begin on April 11.
Dr Fabian Benjamin, its Head of Media and Publicity, in a statement, also disclosed that the mock examination will hold on April 1, nationwide, contrary to its earlier announcement that the exercise will hold on March 23.
Benjamin said that the change was due to certain circumstances beyond the board’s control.
He, however, urged candidates who had indicated interest in the mock examination at the point of registration and had since printed the notification slips, not to bother printing another one.
“All the details on the slips remain the same except the examination date, which is now April 1, 2019.
“However, candidates are to begin the printing of the 2019 UTME notification slips from Tuesday, April 2.
“All candidates, who registered for the 2019 UTME are to ensure that they print their examination notification slips before the day of the examination as no excuses will be entertained.
“The public should note that the board will not reschedule examination for any candidate.” he said.
