JAMB has disclosed that candidates with disabilities can register for the 2024 UTME free of charge. This was made known by the JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, while confirming the commencement of the registration exercise. Apart from the blind candidates, other groups to benefit from the free registration according to the examination body are people with Down syndrome, Autism, Dyslexia disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
While stating that measures have been put in place to ensure a smooth exercise for all candidates, Oloyede also revealed that audio books will now be provided for all blind candidates.
