Candidates preparing for the rescheduled mock examination can now print their notification slips immediately, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has said.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Head, Public Affairs Fabian Benjamin, on Friday night.
The PUNCH reports that the rescheduled exam is due to technical and network issues faced during the Mock-Unified Tertiary Matriculation exams conducted in 725 centres on March 30.
He said the printout is needed to inform candidates of the time and venue of their examinations.
He however noted that candidates, who took the earlier Mock-UTME on Thursday, 30th March, 2023, and whose results have been released, are not eligible for the rescheduled mock examination.
Part of the statement read, “All candidates for the rescheduled Mock-UTME are to visit https:// www.jamb .gov.ng and click on “SUPPLEMENTARY MOCK UTME SLIP PRINTING” on the menu bar to know the time and venue of their examination.
“The rescheduled (supplementary) Mock-UTME Notification Slip would contain the Candidates’ Registration Number, Venue, Date, and Time of the Examination to enable them to easily locate their centres before the examination.
“Candidates are also enjoined to be at their centres one hour before the examination for biometric verification.
“The Board enjoins candidates to note that the commencement time for the rescheduled examination as contained in their Notification Slips, is sacrosanct.”
The board also reminded the public that the 2023 UTME will hold between Tuesday, April 25 and Wednesday, May 3, 2023.
In addition, he restated its zero tolerance for examination malpractice and urges candidates to refrain from any ignoble act or conduct during the rescheduled examination.
“Candidates are advised against going into the examination halls with prohibited items such as wristwatches, calculators, flash drives, phones, among others. They are also warned to desist from the application of “laale” (henna) to do fancied drawings and paintings on their hands to avoid unnecessary interference with the whorls of their fingers which could impede biometric verification, the statement added.
