By Joseph Erunke
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has announced that its 2019 Universal Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, would begin on Thursday, April 11.
JAMB also announced that it has fixed Monday, April 1, 2019, for its 2019 mock examination earlier scheduled for Saturday, March 23, 2019.
JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said in a statement, yesterday, that the change was due to certain circumstances beyond the board’s control.
The statement read: “Candidates who had indicated interest in the mock examination at the point of registration and have since printed their mock examination notification slips need not print another one.
“All the details on the slips remain the same except the examination date which is now April 1, 2019.
“The board has also scheduled to conduct the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, from Thursday, April 11, 2019. Candidates are to begin the printing of the 2019 UTME notification slips from Tuesday, April 2, 2019.
“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 would be entertained.
“The public should note that the board would not reschedule examination for any candidate. Candidates can print their slips anywhere.”
