Don’t want your UTME result seized by JAMB, then you must
take note of these. 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. In other
words, all UTME candidates must avoid any of the listed Malpractice Codes below.

All candidates are to be very careful not to be tagged with any
of the above malpractice codes.
There is probably 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 any 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 all. Your result will be seized by JAMB.
If you contest the withdrawal, JAMB may choose to request,
and attach the CCTV footage to end the case.
Please be careful!
