JAMB 2019: 15-Year-Old Boy from Abia State Emerges Best Candidate

A 15-year-old boy from Abia State has emerged best candidate by scoring 347 marks in the just released 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME.

Similarly, a 16-year-old boy from Abia State came second by scoring 346 marks just as a 17 year old from Osun State trailed behind with 345, considered by the board as the third best result in the 2019 UTME.


But the Registrar of JAMB, Prof Ishaq Oloyode, who announced this at a media briefing, Saturday, however, said the best candidate may not be admitted in the University of Lagos, which he chose as his first choice because of age.

He gave the names of the three best candidates as Ekene Franklin: Igban Emmanuel Chidiebube and Oluwo Isaac Olamilekan Oloyode did not disclose the intended courses of the best performing students.
