UTME 2024: 260,000 sat for mock exam, says JAMB registrar Oloyede

Over 260,000 Candidates Partake in Successful Mock UTME, Reports JAMB Registrar Oloyede

In a milestone event, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) conducted the Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Mock UTME) on Thursday, March 7, with an impressive turnout of over 260,000 candidates across 793 Computer-Based Test (CBT) centers nationwide. The Registrar and Chief Executive of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, announced these figures after personally overseeing the mock exam in various centers in Abuja.

Professor Oloyede expressed his satisfaction with the smooth and efficient conduct of the exercise, emphasizing that the Mock UTME served as a critical test of JAMB’s preparedness for the main UTME, scheduled to commence on Friday, April 19, 2024.

Highlighting the scope of JAMB’s recent activities, Oloyede disclosed that the examination body successfully conducted recruitment examinations for the Nigeria Police on Wednesday. Despite a few incidents recorded during the Mock UTME in approximately four centers, the Registrar assured the public that these issues would be promptly addressed.

“So far, so good. We are doing mock after mock. Just yesterday, we conducted recruitment for the Police Service Commission throughout the country, that was a mock before today’s mock, and today we are conducting our own mock in 793 centers across the country,” Oloyede stated. “Even those three (centers with issues), we will have a way of accommodating them even if they go down completely. But everything is going on well, and the reports we have are that we are very okay.”

Providing further insight, Prof Oloyede revealed that 1.98 million candidates have registered for the main 2024 UTME, with over 260,000 participating in the mock exam. He clarified that the limited number of mock exam registrations (260,000) was a deliberate decision to prevent it from becoming an additional examination and rather serve its intended purpose of testing the system.

“We are adequately ready for the exam. Today is a very special day for us. We know we are doing some internal revolution this year which we were apprehensive of the workability. We can now say we have arrived at what we said to ourselves about six, seven years ago; we have been able to achieve it today,” Oloyede affirmed.

To maintain transparency and efficiency, the JAMB Registrar noted that the results of the Mock UTME would be released either on Thursday evening or Friday.

Damilola Bamiro, the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) consultant at JAMB, added that the examination body was in constant communication with all participating centers through JAMB’s Situation Room. The Situation Room facilitates real-time interaction between the centers and JAMB, enabling the swift resolution of any issues that may arise during the examination.

As the anticipation for the main UTME builds, JAMB assures candidates and stakeholders that they are fully prepared to ensure a seamless and successful examination process, with new mechanisms in place to fortify the integrity of the system.
