JAMB has finally fixed 11th April, 2019 as the new official date to commence with the UTME for this year. They have also postponed the Mock Exam to be held on Monday, 1st April. It is also important to note that the 2019 Registration Portal has now been re-opened till 15th March, 2019 (by midnight), for candidates, who have already created their profiles and purchased the UTME or DE ePINS.
Candidates are to begin reprinting their Official Exam Slips as from 2nd April to see their Exam details such as approved Venues and Time Schedule for their CBT Exam. Meanwhile, those who are qualified to write the Mock Exam on the new date of 1st April do not need to reprint the reprinted exam slips, as all the details on the slips remain the same except the (mock) examination date which is now April 1.
This is indeed the perfect time for all those who are yet to get their JAMB CBT Mobile App to practice for the main exam on their mobile phone. Candidates can equally get the JAMB CBT Software for Computer Systems, to simulate the actual CBT environment on the Main UTME, which now comes up on 11th April.
JAMB’s spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, said these changes are due to ”certain circumstances beyond the Board’s control” and that “All candidates who registered for the 2019 UTME are to ensure that they print their examination notification slips before the day of the examination as no excuses would be entertained. The public should note that the Board would not reschedule examination for any candidate,” he said.
