The Joint admission and matriculation board, JAMB 2017 mock examination will still hold. The JAMB mock examination has been scheduled to hold on Saturday April 29th, 2017.
The reason for the mock examination is to give candidates the opportunity to have an idea of what JAMB CBT is all about and have a feel of what the actual UTME will look like.
The board however, stated categorically that the mock examination is not compulsory for every body and it is not a criteria for 2017 UTME registration or the actual JAMB examination. This means that candidates who choose not to participate in the mock examination can still register and write the 2017 UTME.

So candidates can choose to participate in the examination and equally can decide not to. It is definitely by choice.
Candidates are to indicate if they are interested to sit for the mock examination during their registration for 2017 UTME.
This mock examination is entirely free. No CBT centre is allowed to collect money from candidates for the JAMB mock examination. DO NOT pay any body money for mock examination.
So if this is going to be your first time of sitting for JAMB UTME or you have little or no knowledge on how to use a computer system, we advise you take the mock examination. But hey, this is just an advise. The choice is still Yours!
