Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) Registrar Professor Ishaq Oloyede Discloses the List of Candidates Exempted from Post-UTME Screening Exercise of Tertiary Institutions they Include: Prisoners, Deaf, Blind and Foreign Candidates.

This information was disclosed during the 2020 JAMB Policy meeting held virtually where the exemption of this category of candidates was approved.

Oloyede said the exemption of the aforementioned category of candidates would be treated by the institutions under affirmative and inclusive actions for their accommodation.

RECOMMENDED: List of Post-UTME Screening Forms On Sale & Deadline 2020/2021.

He said: 

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) hereby exempts Prisoners, Deaf, Blind and Foreign Candidates from post-utme screening exercise conducted by tertiary institutions and has put in place a mechanism that would prevent any candidate from taking undue advantage of this exemption. For instance, only candidates, who are either foreigners, or Nigerians, who are confirmed residents in foreign countries, and are products of foreign school system can enjoy this privilege in the interest of internationalisation of the nation’s tertiary institutions.

A Nigerian with less than six months stay in a foreign country is disallowed from taking his/her UTME in any foreign country.
