A list of Prohibited Items has been published by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that’s not allowed into any examination center this year. The items are:

In the bulletin, it states: “to ensure that the board’s examinations meet best global practices, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board prohibits the use of the following items during exams.

“In their own interests, candidates are advised not to bring these items close to the examination venue. Candidates who violate this directive will not be permitted to take the examination.”

According to Dr. Fabian Benjamin, Jamb’s spokesperson, candidates who breached the directive and brought these devices to the hall last year were caught and turned over to law enforcement.

Instructions on Biometric Verification

  1. The only mode of admission to the examination center will be biometric verification. Every candidate must adhere strictly to the guide on compulsory biometric verification.
  2. If a candidate cannot be verified, he/she should not be kept waiting. Such a candidate should be captured before departing the center. Only genuine cases will be handled subsequently.
  3. There is no other Attendance Register besides biometric verification. It will also function as an Attendance Register during examinations.
  4. The Photo Albums will only contain pictures without marking points for Present or Absent status.
  5. The Examination Officials, including the security agents, are responsible for ensuring that all guidelines, rules, and regulations are followed.
