Prof. Oloyede

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that the student with the highest score in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME), a 15-year-old boy with 347 score, may not be considered for admission into the university.

The JAMB registrar, Prof. Isiaq Oloyede, made the statement on Saturday at the press briefing that the 15-year-old from Abia State, may not be admitted into the University of Lagos (UNILAG), which he chose as his first choice due to his age.

The minimum age requirement for admission into university is 16 years as stipulated by the board, though it has not legal backing but rather a norm.

Similarly, another boy from Abia State, 16,  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.

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