The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board said candidates who are yet to receive notification for its mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination may not have indicated interest at the point of registration.
The Head, Media and Information of the board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made the clarification in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Lagos.
NAN reports that, of about 1.9 million candidates who registered for the 2019 UTME, which is computer-based, a total of 157,631 indicated interest for the mock as of the close of UTME registration on February 21.
“We have concluded plans for the conduct of this Mock UTME scheduled to hold on April 1.
“Some candidates have been saying they are yet to receive and print their notification slips for this mock examination. I think that has nothing to do with the board because all those who indicated interest to participate have all been notified.
“Again, some of them might have registered late. However, the examination is optional, and I do not think there is any cause to worry,’’ he said.
NAN reports that printing of notification slip of the main UTME will begin on April 2, while the examination will start from April 11.
