Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board issues warning to candidates over lateness


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board says it will not condone lateness by candidates to its 2019 Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, scheduled for today, Monday, April 1.

The board’s Head, Media and Information, Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in an interview on Sunday in Lagos.

A total of 157,631 candidates have been scheduled to sit for the optional examination in some accredited Computer Based Centres across the country.

According to Benjamin, all is now set for the conduct of the examination by the board.

He added that the date for the conduct of the UTME proper would commence on April 11.

The mock test is being conducted mainly to test run facilities at the various accredited centres nationwide, as well as familiarise candidates with the process.

Over 1.8 million candidates had registered for the 2019 UTME.
