JAMB Bans Use Of Wrist Watches And Pens In 2018 UTME
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has disclosed that it will ban the use of wrist watches and pens during the conduct of its 2018 test.
The board’s Registrar, Is’haq Oloyede disclosed this when speaking to newsmen at a one-day sensitisation workshop for Computer Based Test, CBT, centre owners on Wednesday in Lagos.
“What we are doing here today is to appraise the registration and conduct of our past examination and we have taken some lessons from our experience.
“To this end therefore we have introduced some measures that will further add to the integrity of the registration process as well as the conduct of the examination proper.
“For instance, we discovered during the conduct of the last examination that some electronic devices such as pens, wristwatches and other devices were used to perpetrate examination malpractice.
“So, for next year, we have banned the use of wristwatches and pens by candidates and other persons in the examination hall.
“We are also going to introduce some detection devices to ensure that those who plan to cheat in the examination hall are frustrated, as we will also jam (communication network) of the centres,” he said.
