By Adedayo Olanrewaju

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board,JAMB,has announced that it would begin the registration of 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME on January 14, 2023.

The board also said the registration of its Direct Entry,DE for 2023 session commences from Monday,  February 20, to Thursday, April 20, 2023.

The spokesman of the nation's tertiary institutions admission examinations body, Dr Fabian Benjamin,said in a statement, Tuesday,that the decisions were taken at the end of JAMB's management meeting held on Tuesday, 20th December, 2022.

"The  Board has approved the commencement of registration for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)  from Saturday, 14th January to Tuesday, 14th February, 2023. 

"This, however, does not include  registration for Direct Entry (DE) application documents as the DE registration would commence from Monday, 20th February to Thursday, 20th April, 2023,"he said.

The statement further read:"The Board also fixed Thursday, 16th March, 2023, for the conduct of its optional mock-UTME.

"Candidates are to note that they would be required to pay the sum of N1000 service charge for CBT centres for the conduct of mock examination at the point of registration so as to prevent a situation where candidates would indicate their interest to sit the mock-UTME leading the various centres to commit human and material resources only for them to stay away on the day of the examination. With the new arrangement, candidates indicate their interest by paying for the mock at the point of UTME registration, therefore, precluding the centres from incurring any loss whether candidates turn up or not.

"Also, the Board, after considering its other commitments,  fixed  Saturday, 29th April, 2023, for the conduct of the 2023 UTME, which is expected to end on Monday, 12th May, 2023.

"The Board advises all candidates, who desire to register for the 2023 UTME to immediately embark on the creation of their respective profiles ( creation of profile code) ahead of the formal commencement of the registration exercise to avoid being caught up in any ensuing bottleneck."
