Is JAMB Mock Exam Compulsory For All Candidates?

Is Jamb mock exam compulsory for all candidates? This is one question that some candidates for the 2021 UTME have been asking. In this post, I will share with you all you need to know concerning that. To start with, the JAMB mock exam is not compulsory. It is completely optional.

The JAMB mock exam is not a requirement for writing the main exam. If you decide not to take the JAMB mock exam, it won’t stop you from writing the main exam.

See: JAMB Mock Exam Date 2021 Out

You may have heard one or two persons say that those who refused to take the Jamb mock examination will not be allowed to participate in the main UTME. This is not true.

The truth is that even if you don’t take the Jamb mock exam, you will be 100% allowed to write the Jamb UTME 2021.

Another thing is that your score in the Jamb mock exam doesn’t add to your score in the main Jamb examination as some candidates believe.

However, despite the fact that the Jamb mock is not compulsory, candidates who may not be familiar with the use of computers or CBT are advised to take the mock exam if they can. This will help their confidence as well as help them get familiar with JAMB CBT settings before the main exam.

To participate in the JAMB mock exam, interested candidates are advised to indicate their interest in the mock examination during their JAMB registration.

So only candidates that indicated interested in the mock examination are qualified to take the exam. But like is said earlier whether or not you write the mock exam, it does not affect the main exam because Jamb mock is not compulsory.
