2020 JAMB Mock Exam
JAMB mock exam is designed to prepare candidates for the main examination. It is a pre-test designed by the JAMB management to expose aspirants to what they will face during the main UTME examination. This practice has proven effective since its inception. All of us at Schoolmetro advise candidates to always apply for the mock exam in order to get a taste of how the main examination feels like. The JAMB Mock examination is optional; only those who indicated interest in the examination during their registration will be eligible to write the exam. The 2020 JAMB Mock Examination registration will commence on the 13th of January, 2020 and end on the 1st of February, 2020. Candidates who fail to meet up with this deadline can still register for the main UTME examination but will not participate during the mock exam.
