The registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, has said that blind candidates for UTME will write this year’s examination by interactive mode.
The registrar said that because of the insufficient number of the Braille Note Apex machine normally used by blind, the board has resolved to conduct the examination for them through interaction.
“This year, we are going to interact with you. We will not be using the Braille Note Apex.
“Once you fill the forms, we are going to group all of you nationwide into three zones, Lagos, Kano and Abuja and during the examination, experts will interact with you on the various subject.
“As a result of this development you will not be taking Mathematics in this year’s examination.
The registrar added that it would be unfair for the impaired candidates to be subjected to use the machines even when they had not been adequately trained on how to use them.
