The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has emphasized that it will be organizing an optional mock examination before the 2017 UTME.
According to the information published onits Twitter handle @JAMBHQ, the date of the Mock examination will soon be announced. The purpose of the mock examination is toallow candidates FEEL what the main examination will look like.
However, the board stated that the mock examination is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL. That is to say, it is not really a pre-requiste for writing the actual UTME so you can choose to take the mock examination or choose not to. The board equally disclosed that Interswitch Payment on the e-Facility portal has been temporarily disabled. And also, it will announce the list of its accredited centres soon.
JAMB tweets read: “There will be MOCK Exam before the main exam as earlier stated.“We will be updating you soon on the exam date for the MOCK Exam. The MOCK exam is to allow candidates FEEL what themain examination will look like.
