1. What is JAMB Mock Exam?
JAMB mock exam is an examination organized by JAMB for her UTME candidates who desire to test their level of preparedness several weeks before the main exam.
So JAMB designs the mock exam in such a way that it mimics the main exam in every ramification. The aim is to expose the candidates, especially those attempting JAMB for the first time, to the CBT mode of examination.
But beyond exposing the candidates to the mode of examination, JAMB mock serves to expose the candidates to the nature of questions. Therefore, candidates who sit for JAMB mock learn the level of difficulty and technicality of JAMB questions.
Candidates who participate in JAMB mock exam will still write the main UTME examination like others. However, they should never expect to see the same questions they answered in the mock exam. The mock was simply part of preparation.
2. Importance of JAMB Mock Exam
What is the real importance of JAMB mock exam? Why is JAMB mock necessary for every serious candidate who is intentional about getting a very high score in UTME?
Here are some of the reasons:
i. CBT environments differ with exam bodies. Participating in JAMB mock will expose candidates to JAMB’s CBT interface. So by writing their four subjects, they get familiar with the navigation buttons and nature of timing.
ii. More so, by sitting for JAMB mock, candidates are exposed to the nature of questions set by JAMB examiners. Many fresh secondary school graduates will get to see how JAMB questions differ from those of WAEC and NECO.
iii. Most importantly, JAMB mock helps the candidates to gauge their level of preparation several weeks before the main exam. That way, they will know their areas of weakness and work harder to level up.

3. What’s the Nature of JAMB Mock Questions?
From our discussion on the importance of JAMB mock, you can already get an idea of the nature of the questions.
In order for the mock exam to serve its real objective, the mock questions are not different from those set in the main JAMB exam.
The nature of the two exams are the same – the same CBT environment, timing and level of difficulty. Actually, it is not an overstatement to say that JAMB sets both the mock and main exam from the same database.
But this does not mean you should expect to see your mock questions in your main exam, although it is not impossible.
4. Is JAMB Mock Compulsory for all Candidates?
No, JAMB mock exam is not compulsory. It is optional.
This means that JAMB mock is a matter of choice and not for every candidate. Those who choose not to write the mock exam do not risk losing anything or having any issues in the future.
So just feel free and follow the leading of your heart. But if this coming JAMB is your first attempt and you can afford the extra N1,000, I advise you to register and write the JAMB mock exam.
It’s going to help you in more ways than one.
5. Does JAMB Add The Mock Score To The UTME Score?
If JAMB mock exam is not compulsory, the implication is that JAMB does not add the score to candidates’ UTME score. Otherwise, they will cheat those who do not take part in the mock exam.
So bear this in mind if you are planning to participate in the forthcoming JAMB mock. Your score in the mock will not be used to improve your score in the main UTME exam.
Therefore, you don’t have to rest on your oars if you get a very high score in JAMB mock. Keep studying. Continue to to revise and cover the syllabuses of all your subjects. You never can tell the set of questions the JAMB database will present to you on the main exam day.
6. How Do I Register for JAMB Mock?
Registration for JAMB mock is an integral part of the normal JAMB registration. JAMB advises candidates who desire to participate in the mock examination to indicate interest during registration.
According to JAMB, candidates who indicate interest in writing the mock exam will be required to make an extra payment of N1,000. This is in addition to the normal JAMB registration fee for this year.
So the additional payment is the only basis on which you will be allowed to take part in the JAMB mock exam.
7. When is JAMB Mock 2023?
JAMB has already set in motion plans to conduct a smooth mock exam for interested candidates who are aspiring for admission into the nation’s universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.
The board has set March 16, 2023 as the date for the JAMB mock exam. While the main UTME exam will hold from Saturday, 29th April 2023 to Monday, 12th May 2023.
From all indications, these dates are already close by. I advise every candidate to start preparing earnestly for JAMB so that they won’t have reasons for regrets.
8. JAMB Mock Slip Reprint 2023
JAMB mock slip reprinting is strictly for candidates who indicated interest in participating in the mock exam during their JAMB registration.
They are to reprint their JAMB mock slip a day or two to the exam day. When they do, they will find information about their exam schedule. That is, mock exam date, time and CBT center.
