JAMB has released an official document to list all acts that would be termed
as Exam Malpractice, as could further lead to the seizure of a candidate’s
result. This simply means that all UTME candidates must avoid any of the
listed Malpractice Codes below.
S/N CODES INTERPRETATION OF MALPRACTICE CODES / TYPES / PROHIBITED ITEMS
1 A No e-Registration Slip
2 B Possession of Unauthorized Calculator or similar electronic devices
3 C Possession/Spying/Copying unauthorized books or any reading material
4 D Impersonation
5 E Swapping of Examination Details/ Documents
6 F Possession of USB, CD, Hard Disk or similar storage devices, bluetooth device
7 G Violent/Unruly behaviour to Examiners
8 H Lateness to Examination Hall
9 I Possession of Mobile Phone or Similar Electronic Devices, Cameras, Recorders, Microphones
10 J Possession of Smart Devices e.g. Watches, Buttons, Rings/Jewelry, Lenses, etc
11 K Colluding with other Candidates/Examiners/ External Agents
12 L Leaving the Examination Hall without Permission
OTHER ITEMS SUCH AS FACE CAP, WRIST BAND, ETC ARE ALSO PROHIBITED.
All candidates are to be very careful not to be tagged with any of the above malpractice codes.
So we believe there is a space on your on-screen paper, which candidates can’t see, that your examiner can tag any of the above codes where necessary. If a candidate is guilty of any of the above offences, all your examiner needs to do is enter any of the above codes on your paper, and that’s it. Your result will be withheld.
If contested, JAMB may now request, and attach the CCTV footage to close the case.
