Dahiru said the state government would also pay registration fees for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination for those who excel in the mock examination.

“The mock examination is to enable the state government to understand their readiness towards the conduct of the examination.

“We use the results to pay for their external examinations because it is the government that sponsors their examinations.

“Those that pass this mock examination, as a privilege and as a result of their efforts, their JAMB would be paid for free by the state government,” she said.
