JAMB's list of prohibited items in the exam hall and instructions on biometric verification

As we gear up for the 2024 JAMB CBT exams, candidates are to note that there are items that are not allowed into the exam hall. The only items allowed for the 2024 UTME are an HB pencil and an extra copy of your JAMB exam slip. According to JAMB, this is to ensure that the Board's examinations meet the best global practice. Candidates who bring any of the items highlighted below to the hall will be disallowed from taking the UTME.

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.
