The Registrar of the Board, Is-haq Oloyede, who disclosed this in a statement on Saturday, also apologised to candidates for the sudden changes.
He said: “We could not go on with the Mock Examination and hereby announce extension of registration exercise of the 2017 UTME.
“Instead of the earlier announced April 19, the deadline for the sale of forms and registration will now extend to Friday, May 5, 2017. Consequently, the 2017 UTME has also been postponed to start on Saturday, May 13 – 20, 2017.
“The Mock Examination earlier slated for Saturday, April 8, 2017 has been put on hold.
“This is because the appropriate rehearsal and test-running of the new system has been substantially achieved.
“The plan was to trial-test the readiness of our facilities and address the challenges that may likely confront the main examination.
“At this moment, we have realized that the plan to hold this Mock Examination was good for us. We are now in a better position to achieve better than we would have done without this trial testing. This is why the exercise is at no cost to the candidates.
“It is our strong conviction that this exercise is an experience for us. Our systems analysis has revealed interesting findings that will engender a seamless and successful 2017 UTME exercise.”
We wish all candidates taking part in the examination success and all the very best!!!
