Latest JAMB reports show that only 157,000 candidates (out of over 1 million registered) sat for the UTME mock exam 2019. Also, some JAMB officials were nearly set ablaze at the mock exam center, JAMB bans 14 CBT centers.
Is this an indication that JAMB candidates don’t take the mock exam serious or they think it is not necessary?
For a free mock exam, the expectations are that many JAMBites will seize the opportunity to prepare for the main exam.
Recall that the score candidates get in the mock doesn’t count in their admission process.

And in the other news, JAMB has confirmed attack (by yet to be identified person) on two of her officials sent to Lagos State Polytechnic in Lagos State.
