JAMB Latest News and Updates Today, March 7, 2024

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the body responsible for conducting the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), which is the entrance examination for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The UTME is a computer-based test (CBT) that assesses candidates’ knowledge and skills in four subjects: English Language, Mathematics, and any two other subjects of their choice. The UTME is usually held in April every year, and candidates are required to register online and choose their preferred examination town and centre.

In addition to the UTME, JAMB also conducts a Mock-UTME, which is a practice test for candidates who want to familiarize themselves with the CBT format and environment. The Mock-UTME is optional and free of charge, and it is held a few weeks before the main UTME. Candidates who register for the Mock-UTME are expected to come to the examination hall with only one HB pencil for numerical analysis if they so desire.

The article will also provide some tips and advice for candidates who are preparing for the examinations.


JAMB Mock Exam Takes Place Today, Thursday, March 7th, 2024

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) mock examination is being conducted today, Thursday, March 7th, 2024. This practice test, designed for candidates registered for the upcoming Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), serves as an opportunity to:

  • Assess their preparedness: The mock exam allows candidates to gauge their knowledge and identify areas needing improvement before the main UTME.
  • Familiarize themselves with the CBT environment: The mock exam uses the same computer-based testing (CBT) format as the UTME, helping candidates become comfortable with the testing platform and procedures.

While participation in the mock exam is optional, it is highly recommended for students seeking valuable insights into their readiness and gaining confidence for the actual UTME.

Candidates who registered for the mock exam should report to their designated examination centers at the scheduled times.

We wish all participating candidates the best of luck!

What to Bring to the JAMB Mock Exam Hall 2024

The JAMB Mock Exam is just around the corner, and it’s crucial to be well-prepared on both a mental and physical level. While the mock exam serves as a practice run for the actual UTME, ensuring you have the necessary items can significantly reduce pre-exam stress and allow you to focus on performing your best.

Here’s a concise checklist of what to bring to the JAMB Mock Exam Hall 2024:

  • JAMB Mock Exam Slip: This is your official registration document and serves as proof of your participation. Ensure you have a clear and well-printed copy.
  • Valid ID: Bring a government-issued ID, such as your National Identity Card or International Passport, for verification purposes.
  • HB Pencil (Optional): JAMB has recently permitted the use of HB pencils during the mock exam and the main UTME. This is particularly useful for subjects requiring calculations. However, only one pencil is allowed, and ensure it’s a standard HB type, not a mechanical pencil.

Important Reminders:

  • Electronic devices are strictly prohibited in the exam hall. This includes mobile phones, calculators, and any other electronic gadgets. Leave them at home or securely store them with an invigilator before entering the exam hall.
  • Writing materials are typically provided by the exam center. However, it’s always wise to bring your own HB pencil as a backup, just in case.
  • Dress comfortably and appropriately. Avoid wearing clothes with large pockets, jewelry, or any other items that could be used for malpractice.
  • Arrive at the exam hall early. This allows you to settle in, get familiar with the surroundings, and avoid last-minute stress.

By following these guidelines and ensuring you have the necessary items, you can approach the JAMB Mock Exam with confidence and focus on showcasing your academic capabilities. Remember, the mock exam is a valuable opportunity to practice your exam technique, identify areas for improvement, and gain valuable experience before the actual UTME.

JAMB Eases Pencil Ban for 2024 UTME: Candidates Now Allowed to Bring Ordinary HP Pencils

In a recent development, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has clarified the writing material requirements for candidates participating in the 2024 Mock-UTME, scheduled to take place on March 7. The Board announced that candidates are permitted to use ordinary HP pencils for numerical analysis during the examination.

This clarification was deemed necessary due to numerous inquiries from candidates and the general public regarding the acceptability of HP pencils in the examination hall. Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the Board’s Public Communication Advisor, addressed these concerns in a statement released on Wednesday in Abuja.


In the statement, Dr. Benjamin highlighted the Board’s previous prohibition of pencils and other banned materials due to their potential misuse for illicit activities. However, he revealed that for both the upcoming Mock-UTME and the main examination slated to commence on April 19, JAMB has now approved the use of ordinary HP pencils.

“Candidates are urged to note that they are to come with only one pencil to their respective examination centres as specified while ensuring that they are not in possession of any other prohibited items,” he emphasized.

This adjustment in the policy aims to provide candidates with a clearer understanding of the permissible writing materials inside the examination hall. The move is expected to alleviate concerns and ensure a smooth and transparent conduct of the examinations.

It is essential for candidates to adhere strictly to the specified guidelines, bringing only the approved writing material and avoiding any prohibited items. JAMB remains committed to creating a fair and conducive environment for all candidates during the 2024 UTME.

As the Mock-UTME unfolds on March 7, candidates can now approach the examination confidently, armed with the necessary information about the acceptable writing materials, particularly the ordinary HP pencil permitted for numerical analysis. The Board encourages candidates to stay updated on any further announcements to enhance their overall examination experience.

JAMB reassures candidates that these measures are in place to uphold the integrity and credibility of the examination process, providing a level playing field for all participants in the 2024 UTME.


The 2024 UTME and the Mock-UTME are important examinations for candidates who aspire to gain admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. JAMB has provided relevant information and guidelines for candidates who have registered for the examinations, such as the dates, venues, requirements, and results.

Candidates are advised to follow the instructions and rules of JAMB, and to prepare adequately for the examinations by studying hard, practicing with past questions and mock tests, and managing their time and emotions. By doing so, candidates can increase their chances of scoring high marks and achieving their academic goals.
