JAMB said only 0.5% of candidates scored 300 and above in the exam.

Boy who repeated class smashes UTME

In another JAMB exam story, a boy who was not doing well in school had scored very high in the UTME.

The boy worried his people because he was not performing well in school and had a learning disorder.

@HUNeeyB explained that her relative’s situation was so severe that he always came in the last three positions in class each term and repeated JSS2. This made @HUNeeyB’s aunt pray to God about the boy’s situation, and things changed.

Village boy clears UTME

Meanwhile, Fox Nigeria previously reported that a village boy who abandoned school had scored high in the UTME.

While sharing the result on X, an excited Alex gave an interesting background about the boy named Aneke Kosisochukwu Kasiemobi.

According to Alex, Kosisochukwu dropped out of school two years ago and did not want to take the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exam because he lacked the money. Alex added that the boy went into plumbing and totally abandoned formal education.
