My first time writing JAMB I was confused and curious about the exam not knowing how to go about it coupled with me not having access to the internet to answer my curiosity i went with a free mind hoping to expect the best.

On getting to my center we lined up for inspection, against contrabands(listed above) not only but  harmful objects as well. Then we proceeded for biometrics to check for impersonation, Then marched to our assigned sit number while we waited for the exam to proceed which lasted for about one hour. It is most likely the same procedures so expect it.

In addition, examination malpractice is NOT allowed, anyone found guilty will seriously penalized.

LASTLY, I wish you success in your exam, if you found this article useful kindly come for more updates and share to your friends.
