JAMB made this known in its weekly bulletin from the Office of the Registrar on Monday in Abuja.
The board said the change was due to the realisation that April 16, earlier scheduled, was an Easter Saturday, a holy Saturday celebrated by Christians to mark the end of the Lent period before Easter Sunday.
JAMB also said the date for the exercise had also been affected by the shift in date for the registration of the UTME and Direct Entry (DE), which was earlier scheduled for February 12 but later commenced on February 19.
It, however, urged all candidates who registered and would want to sit for the mock exercise to note the change of date and be prepared.
The 2023 UTME registration commenced on Saturday, February 19 and is expected to end on March 26.
The exam has, however, been scheduled by JAMB to be held from May 6 to May 16.
