Authorities of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board have released this its candidates in the forthcoming UTME.
It said candidates are expected to pay N700 to the Computer Based Test centres before taking their mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
This information is coming barely three days before the commencement of the mock examination.
JAMB Twitter handle says: “All candidates sitting the 2021 Mock examination scheduled for Thursday, 3rd June 2021 are advised to go to their assigned centres with N700. The amount would be paid to the Centre owner as the mock examination fee,” the examination body said.
The above additional payment is different from the N3,500 paid by the candidates for UTME forms (ePINs), and N500 for the reading text.
It is also different from the N700 expected to be paid to the CBT centres for the examination.
JAMB had earlier said: “Candidates, who had registered for the 2021 UTME and indicated interest to sit for the optional mock examination, are to reprint their mock notification slips.
“This is consequent on the change of date for the mock- UTME earlier scheduled for Thursday, May 20 and now to hold on Thursday, June 3.
“It is imperative to reprint as the new slip will have a new date.
“As disclosed earlier, the optional mock notification slip can be printed from anywhere that candidates find convenient, provided they have internet access.”
