JAMB Trains 2000 Invigilators, Warns UTME Candidates Against Bringing Prohibited Items to Exam Venue


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that it had trained no fewer than 2,000 invigilators ahead of the 2023 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examinations (UTME) The training was part of the Board’s efforts to equip all officials on the rudiments of computer appreciation and measures to address any technical issues that might arise during the conduct of the examination.

The training, which was held virtually on Saturday, 4th March 2023, also addressed the need for all examination officials to comport themselves professionally at all times, particularly when addressing cases of malpractice without necessarily causing a commotion in the hall.

Examination officials were also advised not to engage in any act of extortion of candidates and, at the same time, ensure that candidates are protected from any form of extortion as well. In addition, they are enjoined to arrive promptly at their centres.

In a related development, JAMB has warned candidates that the ban on phones, calculator etc in the exam hall is very much intact.

Oloyede said other items prohibited during the exam include smart buttons, wallets/purses, necklaces, rings, bangles, keyholders, Bluetooth devices, cameras, microphones, recorders, contact lenses, books, spyglasses, smartwatches, pens/biros, and earpieces and flash drives.
