The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed dates of registration and tests for the 2023 edition of the annual Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) taken by admission seekers into Nigerian tertiary institutions.

The examination body also approved the dates for the commencement of Direct Entry (DE) registration and modifications to the mock UTME.

JAMB’s head of public affairs and protocol, Fabian Benjamin, said in a statement that the management of the board made the approvals at a meeting on Tuesday.

Mr Benjamin said the 2023 UTME registration begins Saturday, 14 January 2023, and ends Tuesday, 14th February 2023.

He said the computer-based UTME test will be conducted between Saturday, 29th April 2023, and Monday, 12th May 2023.

The agency also fixed Thursday, 16th March 2023, for the conduct of its optional mock UTME.

Meanwhile, Mr Benjamin said registration for the Direct Entry (DE) candidates is scheduled for Monday, 20th February to Thursday, 20th April 2023.

The board, however, made changes to the modus operandi of the mock UTME usually conducted before the main tests.
