The 2022 UTME mock will hold on Saturday, April 9th, 2022. The UTME mock is a pre-examination test organized by JAMB every year for candidates who will be taking the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Candidates were asked to indicate their interest to take part in the mock exam during the 2022 UTME registration.
For the records, the mock exam is not compulsory. The score is not added to the main exam and it is not a requirement to participate in the main exam.
The main purpose of the mock examination is to enable candidates to assess their level of preparation and acquaint themselves with the computer-based test environment. The mock examination was introduced in 2017 to give all candidates an opportunity to have a hands-on experience with the system, especially for those not conversant with the use of computers.
The mock exam is also an avenue for JAMB to test all systems in all centres to ensure they are working efficiently for the main exam. It also prepares the CBT centres and gives them an insight into how they should handle candidates in the main exam.
