The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced indefinite postponement of its mock examination hitherto scheduled to hold on Saturday.
JAMB said the rescheduled presidential and National Assembly elections was the main reason for the sudden shift in date, which was conceived to get candidates acquainted with the Computer Based Test (CBT) examination.
JAMB spokesman, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, confirmed the development, and swiftly dispelled rumours of changes in the date of other programmes that would culminate in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Exam (UTME)
He said: “I can confirm that we have shifted the date for the mock exam which was to hold this Saturday. The decision was necessitated by the election that was rescheduled to that date. We earlier chose Saturday, without the knowledge that election would be shifted to that day.
“However, the management will meet and have extensive discussion and arrive at a new date which will be communicated to candidates.”
He said JAMB regretted the inconveniences and urged candidates to watch out for new date for the mock examination.
