JAMB fixes new date for 2023 UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has announced a new date for the commencement of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).

A statement by JAMB Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, says the 2023 UTME which was earlier scheduled on 29th April will now commence on 25th April, 2023.

According to the statement, JAMB will hold its rescheduled mock-UTME on 18th April, 2023.

The Examination body had earlier conducted Mock UTME in 725 centres across the country, but experienced some technical hitches thereby denying some candidates the opportunity to sit for the examination.

‘’The Board has brought forward the conduct of its 2023 UTME which was earlier scheduled to hold from Saturday, 29th April, 2023, to Tuesday, 25th April, to Tuesday, 2nd May, 2023,’’ the statement notes.
