UTME 2019: 15-Year-Old Scores Highest Mark

As the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB ) released the results of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME ) earlier today, a 15-year-old boy from Abia State has emerged the best-scoring candidate with 347 – considered the highest by the board.

NAIJAPARRY reports that 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.

However, the Registrar of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, who announced this at a media briefing, Saturday, says the best candidate may not be admitted into the University of Lagos (UNILAG), which he chose as his first choice due to his age.


He gave the name of the three best candidates as Ekene Franklin, Igban Emmanuel Chidiebube, and Oluwo Isaac Olamilekan.

But the JAMB boss did not disclose the intended courses of the best-performing candidates.
