The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has listed out 19 items which candidates seeking admission into Nigerian higher institutions must not bring to the Computer-Based Test (CBT) Centres during their examinations.
This was revealed in the JAMBulletin, a weekly publication of the office of the Registrar of the Board.
The publication, stated that the prohibition of the 19 items, is to ensure that the Board’s examinations meet global practices.
The 19 items prohibited include: watches, pens or biros, mobile phones or similar electronic devices, spy reading glasses which should be scrutinized, calculators or similar electronic devices, Universal Serial Bus (USB), compact Disc (CD), hard disks and or similar storage devices.
Others include: books or any reading/writing material, cameras, recorders, microphones, earpieces, ink/pen readers, smart lenses, smart rings/jewelry, smart buttons, Bluetooth devices, key holders, automated teller machine (ATM) cards, and erasers.
“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 candidate from taking the examination”, it stated.
It would be recalled that the switch to CBT by JAMB commenced on March 4, 2015 across the country.
