pens, wrist watches in centers
.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB,
organisers of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination,
UTME, has banned the use of wrist watches and pens during
the conduct of its 2018 test.
.
The board’s Registrar, Is’haq Oloyede disclosed this to
journalists on the sideline of a one-day sensitisation workshop
for Computer Based Test, CBT, centre owners on Wednesday
in Lagos.
.
According to him, the essence of the workshop is to appraise
the registration and conduct of the 2017 examination.
.
“What we are doing here today is to appraise the registration
and conduct of our past examination and we have taken some
lessons from our experience.
.
“To this end therefore we have introduced some measures
that will further add to the integrity of the registration process
as well as the conduct of the examination proper.
.
“For instance, we discovered during the conduct of the last
examination that some electronic devices such as pens,
wristwatches and other devices were used to perpetrate
examination malpractice.
.
“So, for next year, we have banned the use of wristwatches
and pens by candidates and other persons in the examination
hall.
.
“We are also going to introduce some detection devices to
ensure that those who plan to cheat in the examination hall
are frustrated, as we will also jam (communication network) of
the centres,” he said.
.
Mr. Oloyede noted that the sale of the registration document
for the 2018 UTME would commence before the end of
November.
.
“We are planning to meet with all stakeholders on November
15 and the sale of the registration document will definitely
commence before the end of this month.
.
“But before that, we expect candidates to go and download
our app, go to our website and download the syllabus and
brochure, so that they can now study the process.
.
“This is in order to minimise the errors that usually occurs
during the registration process,”
