Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB has released the list of strictly restricted/prohibited items in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination hall.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) still maintained its directive that no candidate would be allowed to come into the exam hall with electronic devices in the forthcoming mock examinations and 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
JAMB’s Weekly Bulletin released in Abuja on Sunday, February 17, 2019, contains the list of prohibited Items that won’t be allowed into any of its centres during this year’s examination. The items are:
- Electronic devices such as:
- mobile phones

- ear piece
- bluetooth devices
- hard disk and other similar storage devices
- smart lenses
- books or any reading/writing material
- ink/pen readers
- key holders
- ATM cards

The bulletin partly states: “to ensure that the board’s examinations meet best global practice, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has prohibited the use of the following items during examinations.
“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 candidates from taking the examination.”
JAMB’s spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin disclosed that some candidates who breached the directive and brought some of the devices to the hall last year were caught and handed over to security agencies.
