The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), is to conduct its optional mock examination in January, preparatory to a better 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 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 avoid avoidable 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.
