The Board said all candidates sitting for the 2024 Mock-UTME would be allowed to enter the examination hall with an ordinary HP pencil for numerical analysis if they so desired.

The JAMB spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in a statement on Wednesday said they clarification became necessary following the series of enquiries from candidates and the general public regarding whether HP pencils were permitted in the examination hall as a writing material.

He said: “It should be noted that the Board had hitherto prohibited the use of pencils and other banned materials in view of the nefarious ends that these materials are put.”
