The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the official entrance examination board for students in Nigeria seeking admission to colleges and universities in the country. Under JAMB, the first entrance exam is called the University Matriculation Examination (UME) for Nigerian students seeking admission to a university in the country. The second exam is the Monotechnics, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education Matriculation Examination (MPCEME) for students seeking admission to Monotechnics, Polytechnics or Colleges of Education in Nigeria. Currently, JAMB has combined these examinations into one exam known as the ‘Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)’.
JAMB conducted its 2023 Mock-UTME on 30 March in 725 centres across Nigeria. However, some students were unable to sit in the examination due to some technical hitches. JAMB said those students can sit for the examination again on 18 April.
Fabian Benjamin, the spokesperson, reportedly said, “Candidates who were present and screened for the examination but could not sit the examination have been rescheduled to retake the mock examination on Tuesday, 18th April 2023.”
