The Joint admission and matriculation board, JAMB has emphasized that there will be a mock examination before the 2017 UTME.
According to the information given, the date of the Mock examination will soon be announced.
The purpose of the mock examination is to allow candidates FEEL what the main examination will look like.
However, the board stated that the mock examination is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL.
That is to say, it is not really a pre-requiste for writing the actual UTME so you can choose to take the mock examination or choose not to.
The board equally disclosed that it will announce the list of accredited centres very soon.
