Which novel is JAMB using for 2024?
The JAMB recommended novel for the 2024 English language exam is The Life Changer by Khadija Abubakar Jalli. The novel is about a girl called Salma and her life at the university. It is pretty exciting and educative.
The Life Changer is a novel by Khadija Abubakar Jalli that tells the story of Ummi Ahmed, a woman who pursues a university education despite her challenges.
The novel begins with Ummi reflecting on her university days, which she describes as the best time of her life. She recounts her experiences as a student, including the carefree lifestyle, the dress codes, and the distinctions between teachers and students. She also shares stories of her friends and classmates, including Salma, who embarrassed herself by disparaging a university official, and Talle, imprisoned for kidnapping a boy for ransom.
Ummi then returns to the present day, where she is a teacher and the mother of four children. She is determined to pursue a university education but faces several obstacles, including the disapproval of her husband’s family and the financial burden of tuition fees. However, with her husband’s and friends’ support, Ummi can eventually enrol in the university.
Her university experience is challenging, but it is also rewarding. She makes new friends, learns new things, and grows. She also faces some ethical dilemmas, such as when she is approached by a lecturer who offers to give her good grades in exchange for sexual favours. Ummi ultimately stands up for herself and her principles, even though it jeopardises her grades.
Ultimately, Ummi graduates from university and achieves her dream of becoming a teacher. She can now provide a better life for her family and inspire her children to pursue their dreams.
The Life Changer is a story about hope, resilience, and the power of education to transform lives. This novel will resonate with readers of all ages and backgrounds.

Is English compulsory in JAMB?
Yes, the English language is a compulsory subject in JAMB CBT. This doesn’t stop at JAMB; it is compulsory in Nigeria in WAEC, NECO, GCE, and other official exams.
The subject is not going to be tough if you have a good background or basic knowledge of the English language. Since English is our official language, it is very important in your academic and career life.
Is the JAMB novel for 2024 out?
The board has not officially announced it, but it’s common logic.
- In 2017 & 2018, Independence was the recommended book.
- In 2019 & 2020, Sweet Sixteen was used by the candidates.
- In 2022 & 2023, The Life Changer was the novel to be read for the English exam.
So, what’s the bottom point? The Life Changer will also be used in 2024.
