The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has recently announced a remarkable initiative to promote inclusivity and accessibility in education. According to the JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, Persons Living With Disability (PLWD) who wish to sit for the 2024/2025 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) can register without incurring any costs. This is a significant move towards breaking the barriers and challenges that PLWD face in pursuing higher education in Nigeria.

JAMB approved free registration for people with disabilities

Oloyede explained that this initiative was part of the efforts to support individuals facing various disabilities and to ensure a fair and efficient examination process for all candidates. He noted that JAMB was committed to inclusivity and diversity in education, and that the board would issue free application documents to all categories of PLWD in the advertisement for the 2024 UTME/DE.

He also revealed that JAMB had introduced audio books in popular formats for blind candidates, as a digital adaptation of the traditional reading book. He said that the audio books would come in formats such as MP3, WMV, and WMA, which would be compatible with all devices that can stream audio records. He added that the suggestion for the provision of audio books was made at the first National Conference on Equal Opportunity of Access to Higher Education in Nigeria.

Furthermore, Oloyede stated that the support extended beyond blindness, covering various disabilities such as Down syndrome, Autism, Dyslexia disorder, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). He said that the following categories of candidates would now be listed under the disability group: Down syndrome, Autism, Dyslexia disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

How JAMB’s initiative will benefit people with disabilities

JAMB’s initiative will have a positive impact on the lives of many people with disabilities who aspire to pursue higher education in Nigeria. Some of the benefits are:

  • It will reduce the financial burden and stress that PLWD face in paying for the UTME registration fee, which is currently N3,500.
  • It will increase the accessibility and availability of learning materials and resources for PLWD, especially for blind candidates who can now use audio books to prepare for the examination.
  • It will enhance the inclusivity and diversity of the educational system in Nigeria, by creating more opportunities and awareness for PLWD to participate in the UTME and gain admission into tertiary institutions.
  • It will empower and motivate PLWD to pursue their academic goals and dreams, by showing them that they are valued and supported by JAMB and the society at large.
