JAMB Reschedules 2023 UTME Mock And Main Exam Date

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has made vital modifications to the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) schedule. In an official assertion by Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the Head of Public Affairs and Protocol of JAMB, the board has introduced the brand new dates for the rescheduled 2023 UTME mock examination and the main examination. These modifications have been made to accommodate other major and important nationwide assignments.

Rescheduled UTME Mock Examination:

The 2023 UTME mock examination, initially organized on Thursday, 30th March 2023, experienced technical complications in some centres, which intercepted some candidates from taking part. To make sure that these candidates have an equal chance to take the examination, JAMB has postponed the mock examination for Tuesday, 18th April 2023.

The aim of the mock examination is to test JAMB’s preparedness and that of its associates for the UTME and to offer potential candidates with hands-on experience in a computer-based test (CBT) setting.

Main UTME Examination Rescheduled:

Initially fixed for Saturday, 29th April 2023, JAMB has brought forward the 2023 UTME to now take place from Tuesday, 25th April to Tuesday, 2nd May 2023. The adjustment in the main UTME date is to accommodate other major and important nationwide assignments and make sure that no citizen is denied the chance to exercise their civic duties.

Constraints and Considerations:

JAMB recognize that it doesn’t have the freedom to push its examination ahead due to other public examinations fixed for early May 2023. One other issue influencing the choice is the necessity to accommodate institutions with stable academic calendars, enabling them to resume as planned.


JAMB is dedicated to collaborating with government companies to make sure that its candidates receive the absolute best examination experience. The board acknowledges the understanding of all stakeholders because it satisfies its essential mandate. Candidates who efficiently took the mock examination on 30th March 2023 can now access their results. With the rescheduled dates for the UTME mock examination and main examination, JAMB has taken a big step towards guaranteeing a good and easy examination process for all candidates.
