The board’s head, media and information, Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in an interview with newsmen in Lagos.
According to Benjamin, all was set for the conduct of the examination by the board.
“Candidates are expected to adhere strictly to all the rules guiding the test.
“I want to say that we are fully set to conduct the examination across centres nationwide. We will also like to appeal to candidates to ensure that they get to their various centres early enough for the necessary accreditation.
“No excuse for lateness will be entertained from any candidate as the board takes the examination seriously.
“All candidates must also ensure that they do their biometrics as failure to do this will mean no examination for such candidates.
“They are also expected not to access the examination hall with all the barred items by the JAMB, such as wrist watches, handsets and others,” he said.
Orient Campus Gist reports that a total of 157,631 candidates have sat for the optional Mock University Tertiary Matriculation Examination in some accredited Computer Based Centres (CBT) across the country, last Monday.
The mock test was conducted mainly to test run facilities at the various accredited centres nationwide, as well as familiarise candidates with the process.
