The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) says mock exam slips for its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) can now be printed in preparation for the exercise.
NAN reports that JAMB broke the news in the weekly bulletin for its registrar’s office on Monday.
The board said the slip contains details like registration number and the centre candidates are to sit for the exam.
The slip, JAMB further explained, also contains the expected time the candidates are to be at the centre. The board urged candidates to study the contents of the slip after printing it to avoid confusion on the scheduled dates.
“Candidates who had registered for the 2021 UTME and indicated interest to sit for the optional mock examination are to print their mock notification slips from Sunday, May 9,” the board stated.
“This is in preparation for the mock examination scheduled for Thursday, May 20.
“The optional mock notification slips can be printed from anywhere candidates find to be convenient, provided they have access to the internet.”
JAMB said 845,517 have so far registered for the 2021 UTME while a total of 38,886 candidates had registered for Direct Entry (DE) as of Sunday, May 9 — following the commencement of registration on April 8 which is expected to end on May 15.
Ahead of the scheduled commencement of the exam — to run from June 5 to 19 — the board cautioned the public against falling victims to scammers whom it said have continued to use its name to commit illicit acts.
It said its attention had been drawn to “the activities of criminal elements who claim to be recruiting invigilators on behalf of the board for the 2021 UTME/DE.”
“They do this while also requesting the payment of acceptance fee of N5,000 payable to the syndicates. The board wishes to state that it is not recruiting any invigilator or any official in that capacity for that matter,” it said.
“It should be noted that even the term ‘invigilator’ is alien to the Board’s operations and therefore, the public is advised to be wary of anybody purporting to be acting on its behalf.”
According to the board, it has a transparent process for recruiting ad-hoc staff and all officials needed for the exam.
