The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board is to conduct its optional mock examination in January, preparatory to actual examination later in the year.
The board made this disclosure in a statement signed by its Head of Media, Mr. Fabian Benjamin, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Abuja.
The board also reiterated the need for candidates to register on time and ensure that they follow due process in order to prevent certain challenges.
“As we prepare for the 2018 examinations, beginning with the optional mock, we urge candidates to register on time, make clear their choices of institutions, disciplines and examination centres in the process.
“Candidates must note that their first choice can be a College of Education, a university, an Innovation Enterprise Institution, a polytechnic or a monotechnic.
“Others include, the Nigerian Defence Academy or the Police Academy.
“We will conduct a better examination, ensure more transparent admission and make more remittances to the government,” according to the statement.
