JAMB UTME 2018: List Of Banned Items In Exam Hall

JAMB UTME 2018: List Of Banned Items In Exam Hall
A list of banned items by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board ahead of the 2018 Mock exam as well as the main exam has been released.

The prohibited items are: wrist watches, pen/biro, mobile phones or similar electronic devices, spy reading glasses which should be scrutinized, calculators or similar electronic devices, USB, CD, hard disks and/or similar storage devices, books or any reading/writing material, cameras, recorders, microphones, ear pieces, ink/pen readers, smart lenses, smart rings/jewellery, smart buttons and Bluetooth devices.

In case of medicated eye glasses, the examination officials are allowed to scrutinise it and where convinced that such item may compromise the sanctity of the examination, the examination official would have to confiscate it.

Whereby an examination official (board staff or adhoc staff) or any authorized person is found with any of these prohibited items in the examination hall, such compromising action would be treated as a deliberate act of examination sabotage and necessary sanction will be applied.

These are part of the steps being taken by the JAMB Monitoring Goup, a Civil Society Groups inaugurated by the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, in checkmating examination malpractice.

Last year, the groups were reputed to have assisted in giving information from the field and transmitted several challenges, as applicable, to JAMB officials which helped in curbing the high rate of examination malpractices in 2017.
