The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, (JAMB) has announced the release of the result for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) mock exam which was conducted on June 3.
This disclosure was made by JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, through a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja yesterday.
The mock examination, which was earlier scheduled for May 20, is part of the preparatory exercise that is used to get the candidates ready for the 2021 main UTME examination, which was shifted from June 19, to July 3, 2021.
Benjamin, in the statement, said, “The result of the mock examination conducted on the June 3 is now on our website. Candidates can check their results by visiting www.jamb.gov.ng.
“A total of 160,718 candidates indicated interest to sit for the examination but only 62,780 turned out for the mock exercise, whose results are now released”.
Recall that the examination body rescheduled the UTME examination, which was initially planned to hold between June 5 and June 19, to June 19 to July 3 in order to accommodate candidates who, largely due to issues related to the newly introduced pre-requisite of National Identification Number (NIN), could not register for the exam.
The main examinations will hold between June 19 and July 3.
