Mock-UTME holds Thursday, JAMB okays use of HB pencils


The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has said the 2024 Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination will be held on Thursday, March 7, 2024.

The Board said all candidates sitting for the 2024 Mock-UTME would be allowed to enter the examination hall with an ordinary HB pencil for numerical analysis if desired.

The JAMB spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in a statement on Wednesday, said the clarification became necessary following the series of enquiries from candidates and the general public regarding whether HB pencils were permitted in the examination hall as a writing material.

The Board has, however, okayed the use of ordinary HB pencil during the upcoming Mock-UTME and the main scheduled to commence on Friday, 19th April 2024.”
