The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said hopefuls who are yet to get warning for its Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) might not have shown enthusiasm at the purpose of UTME enrollment.
The Head, Media and Information of the board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made the illumination in a meeting with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Lagos.
NAN reports that, of about 1.9 million competitors who enrolled for the 2019 UTME, which is PC based, a sum of 157,631 showed enthusiasm for the counterfeit as at the end of UTME enlistment on Feb. 21.
“We have closed designs for the lead of this Mock UTME planned to hang on April 1.
“A few applicants have been stating they are yet to get and print their warning slips for this fake examination. I believe that has nothing to do with the board since every one of the individuals who showed enthusiasm to take an interest have all been told.
“Once more, some of them may have enlisted late. Be that as it may, the examination is discretionary, and I don’t think there is any reason to stress,” he said.
Printing of notice slip of the fundamental UTME will start on April 2, while the examination will begin from April 11.
