Over 260,000 Candidates Sit for 2024 Mock-UTME:

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) oversaw the Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) with over 260,000 candidates participating across 793 Computer-Based Test centres. Professor Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar of JAMB, expressed satisfaction with the seamless execution of the exercise, emphasizing its role in gauging readiness for the main UTME slated to commence on April 19, 2024.


The Mock UTME, conducted as a precursor to the main examination, served as a litmus test for candidates’ readiness and the efficiency of the exam system. Despite minor incidents in a few centres, Oloyede assured the public of swift resolutions, affirming the overall success of the mock examination.


Addressing concerns about the volume of participants, Oloyede disclosed that 1.98 million candidates had registered for the main 2024 UTME, with a deliberate restriction on mock exam registrations to prevent it from becoming an additional examination. This strategic approach ensured that the mock served its intended purpose without compromising the integrity of the main exam.
