JAMB postpones 2019 UTME exams

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Wednesday announced the postponement of the mock examination for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) billed to start on Saturday, February 23.

According to the board, the 2019 UTME mock exam was postponed due to the rescheduled Presidential and National Assembly elections. Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), JAMB’s Head of Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin said, “The elections have been shifted and we are also watching other government programmes. If for any reason they affect our timetable, we will not be averse to shifting. But as it is now, our date stands.

“If they do elections and there is a need to do a run-off and it enters another week, of course, it will affect our programmes, then we will adjust appropriately. “Our mock examination was supposed to start this weekend. Now that INEC has shifted the presidential elections to this weekend, certainly mock examination will not take place that day. “A new date for the mock examination will soon be announced to candidates. But for the examination, the date earlier scheduled stands. “No date has been picked for the mock. We are still looking at other things.”
