The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it will not condone lateness by candidates to its 2019 Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), scheduled for Monday, April 1.
The board’s head, media and information, Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday, March 31 in Lagos.

Legit.ng gathers that a total of 157,631 candidates have been scheduled to sit for the optional examination in some accredited Computer Based Centres (CBT) across the country.
According to Benjamin, all is now set for the conduct of the examination by the board.
“Just like the main UTME, candidates are expected to adhere strictly to all the rules guiding the test.
“I want to say that we are fully set to conduct the mock examination, which is scheduled to hold tomorrow, Monday across some centres nationwide.
“We will also like to appeal to candidates to ensure that they get to their various centres early enough for the necessary accreditation.
“No excuse for lateness will be entertained from any candidate, as the board takes this examination as seriously as the main UTME.
“All candidates must also ensure that they do their biometrics as failure to do this will mean no examination for such candidates.
“They are also expected not to access the examination hall with all the barred items by the JAMB, such as wrist watches, handsets and others,” he said.
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 have registered for the 2019 UTME.
Recall that Legit.ng previously reported that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday, February 11, said that it was fully prepared for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
The board made this known in its weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar and made available in Abuja.
According to the report, the board concluded preparations, following its consideration of all items on the checklist in preparation for the 2019 UTME, among others.
