As a result, we have decided to keep you updated with all the happenings as they unfold. In this article, you’ll find out JAMB mock and UTME examination date for 2020.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) is responsible for conducting entrance examinations for prospective undergraduates into Nigerian universities.
Basically, JAMB offers 2 exam types, which are UTME and DE. UTME stands for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination while DE stands for Direct Entry.
O’level holders are to register as UTME candidates, while ND holders (or equivalent qualifications) are to register as DE candidates.
In general, UTME candidates enrol into the universities and begin from year 1. DE candidates, on the other hand, can start from either 200 level or 300 level, depending on their qualifications.
