  • The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) still maintained its directive that no candidate would be allowed to come into the exam hall with electronic devices in the forthcoming mock examinations and 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

    JAMB’s Weekly Bulletin released in Abuja on Sunday, February 17, 2019, contains the list of prohibited Items that won’t be allowed into any of its centres during this year’s examination. The items are:

    Electronic devices such as:
    mobile phones
    spy reading glasses
    ear piece
    bluetooth devices
    hard disk and other similar storage devices
    smart lenses
    books or any reading/writing material
    ink/pen readers
    key holders
    ATM cards
    smart rings/jewelries

    The bulletin partly states: “to ensure that the board’s examinations meet best global practice, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has prohibited the use of the following items during examinations.

    “Candidates are hereby advised in their best interest not to bring these items close to the examination venue. Any breach of this directive would bar the candidates from taking the examination.”

    JAMB’s spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin disclosed that some candidates who breached the directive and brought some of the devices to the hall last year were caught and handed over to security agencies.
