Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s Head of Public Relations told newsmen on Monday in Bwari that the date was fixed following an agreement that was reached on the harmonization of the examination timetable at a meeting with other exam bodies on January 24.

JAMB recently emphasized it would organize an optional mock examination before the 2017/2018 UTME.

Based on information published on its Twitter handle, the date of the Mock examination will soon be announced.

According to the board, the purpose of the mock examination is to allow candidates “FEEL’’ what the main examination will be like.

The board, however, said the mock examination would be “completely optional’’ as it would not be a pre-requirement for writing the actual UTME.

It added that candidates can choose to either take the mock examination or not.

The board also disclosed that Interswitch Payment on the e-Facility portal has been temporarily disabled and that the list of its accredited centres soon be announced.

The board stated that the UTME 2017 fee is 5,500 Naira.

Sales of Form ends on Wednesday 19th April 2017 while the Registration portal closes on Saturday 22nd April 2017.

JAMB said, for Direct Entry candidates, the application form will be on sale from Sunday 23rd April, 2017.
