Candidates have been warned against carrying some prohibited items into JAMB 2018 exam venue, as the exercise begins in 602 centres across the country on Friday.
JAMB registrar Ishaq Oloyede noted this in a statement where he also noted that the ban on bringing the items into JAMB 2018 exam venue was meant to secure the sanctity and integrity of the board’s examination.
“Kindly note that the examination officials are allowed to scrutinise eye glass or similar devices and when convinced that such item may compromise the sanctity of the examination, the examination official should confiscate it,” the registrar added.
“Where examination official (Board staff or Adhoc staff) or any authorised 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.”
More than 1.6 million candidates are expected to write the JAMB 2018 exam in 602 centres in the country.
So, here are the prohibited items from JAMB 2018 exam venue(s):
3) Mobile phones or similar electronic devices
