The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the mock Computer-Based Test (CBT) exam for 2024 will take place on March 7th.

The mock exam is an invaluable preparatory tool for candidates, and it is highly recommended that they take advantage of it if they can.

Here are some essential things prospective candidates need to know about the 2024 JAMB CBT mock exam:

1. Registration

To participate in the JAMB CBT mock exam, candidates are required to indicate their interest during the JAMB registration process. The mock exam option is available on the JAMB registration portal.  To register, candidates must first obtain their National Identification Number (NIN) and create a profile by sending their even-digit NIN to 55019 or 66019.

2. Non-Refundable Fee

Candidates taking the mock exam must pay a non-refundable fee of ₦7,700. This fee covers the expenses of conducting the mock exam, and candidates are advised to confirm their intent before payment. 

Also, candidates have the options of paying through banks, mobile money operators or online payment on the JAMB portal through remita or interswitch, etc.

3. Flexibility in Participation

Sitting for the 2024 JAMB mock CBT exam is voluntary. While it’s not mandatory, it’s highly recommended as it familiarizes candidates with the exam environment and offers a chance to visit their eventual exam centers with less pressure.

5. Mock Exam Format

The JAMB CBT mock exam follows the same format as the actual JAMB exam. It consists of multiple-choice questions covering various subjects such as English language, mathematics, and the candidate’s chosen subjects.

The exam is computer-based and consists of four subjects: English Language, Mathematics, and two other subjects relevant to the candidate’s chosen course of study. The registration fee for both UTME and Direct Entry has been fixed at ₦6,200 while foreign students will pay $30 only.
