Head boy in school shares exam failure

Phillyf_ alleged that the UTME written that year was very horrible in general and the aggregate he scored was not his rightful mark.

He disclosed that he was the head boy of his school and the best art student from SS1-3, which meant that he was too intelligent for the low aggregate he got.

He wrote:

“2016 JAMB was so horrible. They gave me 163. A whole Head Boy & Best Student in Art class SS1-3.”

The comments section was flooded with the reactions of netizens who also wrote UTME in 2016.
