The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has postponed the mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 8.

The examination, which was scheduled to hold in some selected accredited centres across the country, was shifted at the last minute, thus infuriating the candidates.

The mock examination, which is not compulsory, was designed to acquaint prospective candidates on the demands of the examination and its processes, using the Computer Based Testing (CBT) mode.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), who went out to monitor the examination in parts of Lagos, reports that candidates reported to their respective centres as early as 5.00 a.m.

At one of the centres in Ikeja, candidates waited patiently till about 2.00 p.m. for the examination to start.

NAN reports that when an official of JAMB at the centre was approached, to know why the examination was delayed, he said they were experiencing network problems.

“Not long after that, the official, who pleaded anonymity, told NAN that information reaching him said that the examination had been postponed nationwide,’’ the officer said.

He added that the postponement was due to “some unforeseen circumstances’’ and that a new date would be communicated to the prospective candidates.
