Legit.ng gathered that JAMB stated that candidates, who had indicated interest to sit for the mock-UTME and had earlier printed the examination slips, were advised to reprint, following the shift in examination date.

“It is imperative to reprint as the new slip will have a new date. As disclosed earlier, the optional mock notification slip can be printed from anywhere that candidates find convenient, provided they have internet access. To print the slip, candidates are to visit https://www.jamb.gov.ng then click on the facility and print their slips."

The Guardian also reports that the board explained that each slip contained candidates’ details such as registration number and most importantly, the centre they were to sit for the examination within their chosen examination town.

The statement added that the slip also contained the expected time to be at the centre.

JAMB further advised that candidates were expected to print and study the contents in the slip to avoid mix up in the location of their centres and name of the examination centres.

It stated that unlike the West African Examination Council (WAEC) or National Examination Council (NECO), the UTME and Direct Entry (DE) registration and examination were not school-based.

JAMB also said it had so far, registered 1,223,962 UTME candidates and 63,586 DE candidates.
