At least 174 students of the Deeper Life High School have scored 300 and above in the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination(UTME).

This is made available by the school via its official handle on Facebook @Deeper Life High School.

“Despite JAMB’s announcement that only around 0.5% of candidates nationwide scored 300 and above in the 2024 UTME, an astounding one hundred and seventy-four (174) students of DLHS exceeded expectations with flying colours by scoring 300 and above,” the school said in the post.

According to the school, the highest scorer this year is Ayeyemi Godsgift, who scored a total of 362 points out of the total 400 obtainable points.

It would be recalled that the school produced the highest scorer for the 2023 UTME.

Umeh Kamsiyochukwu had emerged as the highest scorer for 2023 UTME with a total of 360 points.

According to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, 1,402,490 candidates out of 1,842,464 failed to score 200 out of 400 marks in this year’s UTME.

The examination body, through its registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, had stated that, among other reasons, the board considers the UTME as “only a ranking examination.”

Oloyede said that this informed its decision not to disclose the names of the highest-scoring candidates in the just-concluded UTME.

Also, the board urged Nigerians to be wary of any candidate parading printed result slips, stressing that, currently, the result was not yet in any paper format for anyone to print out.
