Every year, the same question on the lips of parents, and especially JAMBites is: “Highest JAMB score”, and this year is no different. Here, I’ll be answering the question “What is the highest JAMB score for 2023”.
This year’s (2023) Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is filled with numerous updates and news. However, the biggest so far was the confirmation of who scored the highest in JAMB, and even the JAMB’s Head was involved in the issue.
Usually, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announces the top 10 highest JAMB scores a few days after they’ve released the results of candidates who participated in the examination. Although nothing is stopping the board from announcing the top 20, or 50 candidates with the Highest JAMB score, the board has decided to ONLY mention the top 10 candidates yearly.
This year 2023, the highest JAMB score was attained by a female candidate, Nkechinyere Umeh, an indigene of Anambra state, Nigeria.
Miss Nkechineyere Umeh has been named the best candidate in the just concluded 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) with a cumulative mark of 360. According to the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede who disclosed this in FCT Abuja in the policy meeting for tertiary institutions, where they will determine this year’s cut off marks for admission into Universities, Polytechnics, and Colleges of Education (COE).
While Stephen Aguele, a young boy who hails from Edo state, scored 358 came second best; Oluwafemi Ositade from Osun state also scored 358 and came third on the list.
