Ahead of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination(UTME) slated to hold between 6th and 14th May, 2022, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has reminded prospective candidates of the need to adhere strictly to examination etiquette, warning that stiff penalty awaits anyone who runs foul of the laid-down rules and regulations governing the examination.
The Board reiterated its zero tolerance for examination infractions and other unwholesome practices that could undermine the sanctity of its examination.
According to the statement, the Board maintained that, as a responsible organisation, it is as usual, committed to providing a level playing field for all candidates in its upcoming 2022 UTME.

He added that the UTME , as a standardised test, is guided by rules and regulations that must be strictly followed by both the examiners and examinees to arrive at a valid and specific objective.
He stated further, “Examination etiquette is encapsulated in the candidates’ code of conduct comprising rules and regulations that must be followed by all candidates before, during and after the examination.”
He advised the candidates to strictly adhere to the examination schedule as stated in their notification slips which would be made available in due course and would feature the venue, scheduled date, session and time of the examination.
Dr. Benjamin urged all candidates to be at their examination venues at least an hour before the scheduled time so as to afford them the opportunity of going through biometric verification prior to their admittance into the examination hall. He said, any candidate who is 30 minutes late into the examination venue would not be allowed into the examination hall. Continuing, he said, “all candidates are required to be seated only in the allotted seats assigned to them and should follow the instructions as issued out to them by the examination officials and should not attempt to leave the examination hall until one hour after the commencement of the examination.”
The Board’s spokesman reminded the candidates that electronic gadgets and other unauthorised materials like eyeglasses unless recommended; USB, fez caps, calculators, tape recorder, camera, wristwatch, bangles, cell phones, among others, are banned within the examination hall.
