The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has approved the commencement of the registration for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) from Saturday, 14th January to Tuesday, 14th February 2023. 

This, however, does not include registration for Direct Entry (DE) application documents as the DE registration would commence from Monday, 20th February to Thursday, 20th April 2022, while, Thursday, 16th March 2023, would be for the conduct of its optional mock-UTME. 

Also, the Board, said after considering its other commitments, it fixed Saturday, 29th April 2023, for the conduct of the 2023 UTME, which is expected to end on Monday, 12th May 2023.

This was approved at the end of its management meeting held on Tuesday, 20th December 2022, where it rolled out some major dates for its activities in 2023.

A statement by the JAMB spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said candidates would be required to pay the sum of N1,000 service charge for CBT centres for the conduct of mock examination at the point of registration. 

 “With the new arrangement, candidates indicate their interest by paying for the mock at the point of UTME registration, therefore, precluding the centres from incurring any loss whether candidates turn up or not,” he said.

The Board, however, advises all candidates, who desire to register for the 2023 UTME to immediately embark on the creation of their respective profiles (creation of profile code) ahead of the formal commencement of the registration exercise to avoid being caught up in any ensuing bottleneck.
