JAMB bans pens and wrist watches in its examinations

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB has banned the use of pens and wrist watches in its examinations. It also forbids from using eye glasses during exams.
Prof. Is’haq Oloyede, head of the body said in Lagos:

“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,”
