The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the commencement of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). According to JAMB, over 1.6 million candidates have registered for the examination, which is set to take place over a period of two weeks.
The registration process for the 2023 UTME began in December 2022 and ended in March 2023. JAMB has stated that the number of registered candidates is a significant increase from the previous year, indicating a growing interest in tertiary education among Nigerian youths.
The examination will take place in designated centers across the country and will consist of four subjects: English Language, Mathematics, and two other subjects relevant to the candidate’s chosen course of study. Candidates will also be required to take a Computer-Based Test (CBT) in order to assess their knowledge and competence in computer usage.
JAMB has assured candidates and stakeholders of its commitment to ensuring a smooth and transparent examination process. The board has put in place measures to prevent examination malpractice and has warned candidates against engaging in any form of misconduct.
Candidates are advised to arrive at their designated examination centers at least one hour before the scheduled time of their examination. They are also reminded to bring their e-slip, which contains their examination details, and a valid form of identification.
The 2023 UTME presents an opportunity for Nigerian youths to gain admission into tertiary institutions and pursue their academic dreams. JAMB has urged candidates to take the examination seriously and prepare adequately to increase their chances of success.
Note: The examination, which started on Tuesday, will continue until Wednesday, 3rd May 2023 at selected Computer Based Centres across Nigeria.
