The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, is giving albinos partaking in the 2012 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on March 24 two extra hours as a result of their sight problem.

 JAMB Registrar, Prof. ‘Dibu Ojerinde, in Abuja, yesterday said that the albinos will henceforth enjoy additional time of two hours in its future examinations.

Ojerinde described the albinos as virtually impaired persons, hence cannot finish their exams at the same pace with other candidates.

Speaking at a  briefing on the 2012 UTME Ojerinde explained that the concession to the albinos was informed by the peculiar sight problem associated with albinism.

He said that the consideration has become imperative for JAMB and all other examination bodies to do whatever they can to help these vulnerable persons.
