The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has rolled out some major dates for its activities in 2023.
The agency took the decision at the end of its management meeting held on Tuesday, December 20, 2022.
Consequently, the Board has approved the commencement of registration for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination from Saturday, January 14 to Tuesday, February 14 2023.
A statement by the board on Tuesday said this, however, does not include registration for Direct Entry application documents as the Direct Entry registration would commence from Monday, February 20 to Thursday, April 20 2022.
The Board also fixed Thursday, March 16 2023, for the conduct of its optional mock UTME.
“Candidates are to note that they would be required to pay the sum of N1000 service charge for CBT centres for the conduct of mock examination at the point of registration so as to prevent a situation where candidates would indicate their interest to sit the mock-UTME leading the various centres to commit human and material resources only for them to stay away on the day of the examination.
“With the new arrangement, candidates indicate their interest by paying for the mock at the point of UTME registration, therefore, precluding the centres from incurring any loss whether candidates turn up or not,” the statement noted.
Also, the Board has fixed Saturday, April 29, 2023, for the conduct of the 2023 UTME, which is expected to end on Monday, May 12, 2023.
The Board, therefore, advised all candidates, who desire to register for the 2023 UTME to immediately embark on the creation of their respective profiles ( creation of profile code) ahead of the formal commencement of the registration exercise to avoid being caught up in any ensuing bottleneck.
