There’s special arrangement for persons living with disabilities – JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has made provision for candidates living with disabilities writing the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The Ibadan Zonal Director of JAMB, Mrs Olajumoke Adeleke made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday.

She said: “I believe that there is provision for them in the Federal College of Education (Special), Oyo Town.

“The number of hours for sitting for UTME is two hours, but for the physically challenged, we always give them time to write their examination. There is extra time for them.”

Adeleke added that technical glitches being experienced in centres had been resolved almost immediately and no candidate would be left unattended to.

NAN reports that during UTME registration, special centres were created for people living with disabilities in Oyo, Ekiti and Lagos for the South-West Zone.
