Tuesday , March 6 .
The board ’s Head of Media and Information Department, Dr Fabian Benjamin ,
said in Lagos on Sunday that arrangements had been concluded for the
successful conduct of the exam scheduled to hold from March 9 to March 17.
“We have successfully conducted the Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination ( UTME) on Monday , February 26 , and based on that , we can
confidently say , we are good to go.
“The mock UTME was to expose the candidates to the process as well as test
the level of preparedness of the various centres . “Candidates can now go
ahead and print their examination notification slips from Tuesday .
“These candidates must ensure that these slips are printed before Friday ,
March 9, in order to familiarise themselves with the examination schedules
as no form of excuse for missing the examination will be entertained .
“We want to warn that the board will not reschedule any examination for
anybody and so any candidate that fails to adhere strictly to the examination schedule as stated in their slips should have himself or herself to blame .”
