MOCK UTME: Candidates to Pay N700.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Monday directed candidates to pay N700 to the Computer Based Test, CBT, centres before taking their mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
In a statement made on its tweeter handle, JAMB explained that the N700 is different from the N3,500 paid by the candidates for UTME forms (e-PINS), N500 for the reading text.
The statement reads: “All candidates sitting the 2021 Mock examination scheduled for Thursday, 3rd June 2021 are advised to go to their assigned centres with N700. The amount would be paid to the Centre owner as of the mock examination fee,” JAMB tweeted.
“Candidates who had registered for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and indicated interest to sit the optional mock examination are to print their mock notification slips from Sunday, 9th May 2021 in preparation for the mock examination scheduled for Thursday, 20th May 2021.”
In a related development, JAMB had directed candidates sitting for its mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination to reprint the examination slip.
The examination body also clarified that there will be no general extension of registration for the 2021 UTME and the Direct Entry (DE), explaining that only those with genuine proof will be granted an extension.
It would be recalled that JAMB yesterday further extended the registration of candidates for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Examination (UTME), explaining that only those with genuine proof will be granted an extension.
JAMB had shifted the closing date from May 15 to May 29 but received complaints of candidates’ inability to register due to different factors that militate against the registration processes.
The exam body has now given candidates the opportunity to complete their registration between May 31 to June 15, 2021.
