JAMB Postpones 2023 Mock Exam

As announced by JAMB’s head of media, Fabian Benjamin, through their official twitter handle, the 2023 JAMB mock which was initially scheduled to hold on Thursday, 16th March, 2023 has been postponed. The 2023 JAMB Mock-UTME will now hold exactly two weeks ahead of the earlier scheduled day which is on Thursday, 30th March, 2023.


“But why the change in schedule?” you might be asking. This change is mainly due to the fact that the General Elections which was supposed to hold March 11th was shifted to March 18th. The main exam will still hold from 29th April 2023 to 12th May 2023. Candidates who have registered and have chosen to sit the Mock and other critical stakeholders are to carefully take note of this change of date.


Some New Instructions For Main Exam (JAMB)

JAMB equally disclosed that there has been some modification regarding the main exam. For instance, if there is a delay of up to one hour before the commencement of a particular session of the exam, that session will be cancelled and would be rescheduled for the candidates affected.

Similarly, no examination can be started one hour after the scheduled commencement time. The session will be scheduled for the next VACANT or AVAILABLE slot. The Board has made it mandatory that candidates must be notified of their new scheduled session or centre, as the case may be, before they leave the centre. In addition, no candidate would be allowed to spend less than one hour before submission of the exam. Also, it would be impossible for candidates to login after one hour the examination has started. This means the every candidate must try and be in the exam centre early before the exam begins.

If for any reason, an examination session is cancelled or cannot hold, candidates are not to panic as they will simply be scheduled for the next available session, which could be that same day. What such candidates are expected to do is to quietly leave the hall and move to the Holding Area to await further instruction. Furthermore, they are not to leave the examination centre until they have been notified of the day and time of their rescheduled examination.

Candidates are to note that any rescheduled examination is strictly meant to accommodate only those whose examination session could not hold on account of one reason or another not for those who were marked LATE or ABSENT for their session.

In Conclusion:

  • Initial Date: Thursday, 16th March, 2023.
  • New Date: Thursday, 30th March, 2023.
