The board also rolled out some other major dates for its 2024 activities.

Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s head of public affairs, confirmed this in a statement on Wednesday.

He said the board announced that registration for its 2024 UTME will be held between January 15 and February 26.

The board said the conduct of the UTME itself would commence on March 19 and end on April 29, 2024.

JAMB also fixed March 7 for the conduct of its optional mock UTME.

The exam body said all candidates are expected to print their examination slips as from April 10, 2024.

JAMB had previously said it would conduct a pilot test on its Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative ahead of next year’s examination.

The BYOD initiative will allow UTME candidates to write the exam on their personal phones and tablet computers at the testing centre.

Benjamin called on all prospective candidates to prepare for the initiative which he said would reshape the e-testing landscape.

“I urge all prospective candidates to start practising with the devices they intend to use in the coming UTME, prior to which a pilot test will be conducted to aid the smooth implementation of the project,” he added.
