There have been more than 236,000 people sign up for the 2022 UTME and Direct Entry (DE) programs in the first eight days of the registration period. The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said this.
As a result, the mock exam, originally scheduled for April 16, has been postponed until April 9 by the examination authority.
The record is a considerable improvement when compared to its experience in 2021, when just 102,221 candidates were successfully registered in the same period.
Furthermore, the accredited computer-based exam centers have been approved to register candidates for the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), part-time, sandwich, and remote learning programs, and that effective monitoring will be required to handle anticipated issues of malpractices. "
Mock examination has been rescheduled.
JAMB explained that the new date for the mock exam was chosen since Easter Saturday falls on April 16 this year.
The date for JAMB Mock 2022 has been changed because it falls on the day before Easter Sunday, which is a holy Saturday for Christians and marks the end of the Lenten season.
Only 286 people have received their PINs so far, according to JAMB, but 236,206 people have already registered.
