JAMB List Of Prohibited Items In The Exam Hall And Instructions On Biometric Verification

Candidates should be aware that certain objects are prohibited from being brought into the exam hall as we prepare for the 2023 JAMB CBT mock and main exams. This, according to JAMB, is done to guarantee that the Board’s exams adhere to the finest practices around the world. Applicants would not be permitted to take the UTME if they brought any of these items into the testing center.

To prevent issues during the UTME exercise, candidates are now required to carefully review the list and take note of the prohibited items.

Instructions on Biometric Verification

  1. Biometric Verification will be the only mode for the admittance of candidates into the examination centre. Strict adherence to the guide on compulsory biometric verification of every candidate is required.

  2. No Candidate should be kept waiting if he/she cannot be verified. Such a candidate should be recaptured at the centre before leaving. ONLY genuine cases will subsequently be treated.

  3. There is no other Attendance Register apart from the biometric verification. Biometric verification will also serve as Attendance Register during examinations.

  4. Photo Albums will only carry pictures with no marking points for either Present or Absent status.

  5. All Examination Officials, including the security agents, are to ensure compliance with all guidelines, rules and regulations on the examination.
