“Taking the mock examination has proved to be one of the most effective tests of readiness for the main examination,” Mr Oloyede said.
He emphasized that the mock examination was set up to investigate the institution’s facilities and determine its preparedness for the real UTME.
Mr Oloyede went on to say that the centers must perform better in the main examination in May and advised all applicants who registered and shown an interest in participating in the mock examination to save the date, April 9, and be prepared.
Meanwhile, JAMB has set the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on May 6-16, with 1.8 million applicants registered for this year’s primary UTME.
