Not less than 176,408 candidates have sat the 2023 mock unified tertiary matriculation examination (Mock-UTME) conducted by the joint admissions and matriculation board nationwide.
Candidates on Thursday applauded the examining body for the effective conduct of the computer based test (CBT).
According to reports, some few hitches were recorded during biometric verification and actual examination at some of the examination centres.
Challenges some of the candidates battled included recognition of their biometrics while some others were logged out requiring the assistance of the technical staff of the CBT Centre to log in.
While speaking about the examination, the Spokesperson of JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, explained that Mock-UTME is an optional examination introduced by the Board to provide opportunity for candidates to have hands-on experience with the system.
He added that the examination will afford the board an opportunity to ascertain its readiness and that of its partners for the main exam, which is scheduled to hold between 29th April, to 12th May, 2023.
Benjamin also announced that this year’s UTME would witness some groundbreaking innovations aimed at addressing observed infractions and centre failures.
He noted for instance that in the new regime, if there is a delay of up to one hour before the commencement of a particular session, that session stands cancelled and would be rescheduled along with the candidates.
