JAMB Mock exam for 2019 earlier scheduled to hold February 23rd, 2019 has been officially postpone due to the rescheduled Presidential and National Assembly elections which will now hold on that date.
JAMB’ s head of media Dr Fabian in an interview on Wednesday said the a new date for the mock examination has not been fixed yet.
Dr Fabian equally disclosed that the board will also postpone the date of the main exam if the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections scheduled for March 9th, 2019 are not concluded on that day as it may likely affect the 2019 UTME scheduled to commence March 16th.
The board also said, on Wednesday, that it may reschedule the 2019 UTME if the country’s elections drag until the earlier fixed dates of Saturday, March 16, to Saturday, March 23.
Benjamin added that a new date for the mock examination would be announced by the management shortly.
He said, “The elections have been shifted and we are also watching other government programmes. If for any reason they affect our timetable, we will not be averse to shifting. But as it is now, our date stands.
“If they do elections and there is a need to do a run-off and it enters another week, of course, it will affect our programmes, then we will adjust appropriately.
“Our mock examination was supposed to start this weekend. Now that INEC has shifted the presidential elections to this weekend, certainly mock examination will not take place that day.
“A new date for the mock examination will soon be announced to candidates. But for the examination, the date earlier scheduled stands. No date has been picked for the mock. We are still looking at other things.”
