JAMB in its bulletin asked the general public and candidates to ignore the dates being circulated especially on Social media about the two examinations.
The exam body also stressed that all arrangements to conduct the mock exam and the 2019 UTME have been concluded and enjoined the candidates to wait for the new dates which will be announced soon.
The mock exam written few weeks before the main UTME was introduced in 2017 to avail candidates the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the conduct of the computerized test (CBT). More so, it was designed to help candidates who are coming in contact with computer know the basics of computer-based tests and prevent any phobia that might arise.
JAMB also advised all UTME candidates to guard jealously all their documents pertaining to the UTME and Direct Entry examination. This is very important to avoid stories that touch the heart.
