The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board
has said that 245,753 candidates out of the
registered 1,652,795 candidates will sit for the mock Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination scheduled for Monday, February
JAMB’s spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, in a
statement released on Sunday, said that a total of 1,966,918 candidate profiles were generated for the main UTME, which would hold nationwide between March 9 and 17.
Benjamin said the mock examination would
commence as planned, despite the ongoing
strike by members of the Non – Academic Staff Union of universities.
He said, “The board has concluded arrangements for the conduct of the mock
UTME, slated for Monday, February 26. This is irrespective of the ongoing strike embarked upon by members of non-academic unions of federal universities nationwide.
“We are still hopeful that an amicable resolution of the crisis would be reached before the date of the examination. The unions are our critical stakeholders and their absence would be felt if the issues were not resolved before the exams day.
“Candidates will soon be informed on when to
print notifications for the mock examination and in addition, notifications will be sent through electronic mails and text messages
