2023 UTME: JAMB announces dates for registration, conduct of examination



The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Tuesday announced dates for commencement of registration and conduct of 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

According to the Board, registration for the 2023 UTME will be on from Jan. 24 to Feb. 14, 2023 while March 16, 2023 has been fixed for the conduct of its optional mock-UTME.

This is contained in a statement by the board’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in Abuja.

Benjamin, however, said registration for Direct Entry (DE) would commence from Feb. 20 to April 20, 2023.

Also, he said the board, after considering its other commitments, fixed April 29, 2023, for the conduct of the 2023 UTME, and is expected to end on May 12, 2023.

“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.

“This is 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 board advises 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,” he said.
