Fabian Benjamin, the board’s spokesman, broke the news in a terse message to TheCable Lifestyle on Monday.

According to him, the UTME/DE registration will end on March 19 while the mock exam is scheduled to hold on April 20.

“Yes, the registration (UTME/DE) will start on February 12 and end on March 19,” he said.

He also disclosed that the UTME will take place between April 20 and 30.

This year’s exam is coming against the backdrop of several new initiatives introduced by the board.

JAMB had earlier changed its literature texts for four language-related subjects.

The board also announced that it has taken over the collection of the N700 registration fee from CBT centres.

Earlier, the board had warned prospective applicants to disregard fraudsters claiming the UTME/DE forms are already out.

“For the avoidance of doubt, any information in circulation purporting to have emanated from the Board to the effect that the sale of the 2022 UTME and DE forms has commenced is not only fraudulent but is a calculated attempt by mischief makers to create unnecessary panic among prospective candidates for their own selfish ends,” it had said.
