The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, says it will commence registration for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME from January 14 to February 14, 2023.
A statement by the head of Media and Information, Mr Fabian Benjamin, says the examination body rolled out some major dates for its activities in 2023 at the end of its management meeting held in Abuja.
He also states that Direct Entry registration would commence from Monday, 20th February to Thursday, 20th April 2023.
According to the statement, the board also fix Thursday, 16th March 2023, for the conduct of its optional Mock UTME.
The statement notes that candidates would be required to pay the sum of N1000 service fee for the Computer-Based Test CBT centres, for the conduct of Mock Examination at the point of registration.
This is to prevent a situation where candidates would indicate their interest to sit for the mock-UTME leading the various centres to commit human and material resources only for them to stay away on the day of the examination.
The statement adds that JAMB has fixed Saturday, 29th April 2023, for the conduct of the 2023 UTME which is expected to end on Monday, 12th May 2023.
