Determined to give equal opportunity to candidates desirous of tertiary education, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has set Saturday, 6th May, 2023 for its Mop-Up UTME.

It should be noted that, as is the custom with the Board after every Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), the various reports from its officials in the field and video footage of the examination are reviewed by its team of experts, with a view to detecting activities subversive of the examination process. It is after all the reports have been collated and considered that the Management would take critical decisions as to the necessity or otherwise of a mop-up examination for which category of candidates.

The examination body also noted that three categories of candidates who missed their examinations had been rescheduled for mop-up examinations. Candidates under these categories are principally those who were verified at their centres but could not sit the examination; those who could not be biometrically verified, and those with mismatched data.

As part of the decisions reached at the end of an emergency management meeting held on Sunday, 31st April 2023, the Board has fixed Saturday, 6th May 2023, for all categories of candidates who have not sat their examination, as mentioned above, to take their examination.
