The embattled Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, candidate, Mmesoma Ejikeme, has admitted scoring 249.
Mmesoma was reacting to claims that the feedback from JAMB showed she scored 249.
The 19-year-old had claimed to have earned JAMB’s highest score after her UTME result slip showed 362.
But, JAMB had faulted the result, stressing that she forged it.
The claims and counter-claims between Mmesoma and JAMB caused a major controversy across Nigeria.
Amid the controversy, the board insisted she forged the result on a template it stopped using in 2021.
