UTME: 174 Deeper Life school students score 300 and above


UTME-candidatesNigerians on social media have expressed their admiration as Deeper Life High School announced that no fewer than 174 students across its campuses nationwide scored 300 and above in the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The school in a post via its official handle on Facebook, Deeper Life High School, posted the 174 students.

“Despite JAMB’s announcement that only around 0.5 per cent of candidates nationwide scored 300 and above in the 2024 UTME, an astounding 174 students of DLHS exceeded expectations with flying colours by scoring 300 and above,” the school said in the post.

According to the information obtained from the school’s Facebook page, the highest scorer this year, Ayeyemi Ibukunoluwa, scored a total of 362 points out of the 400 obtainable points.

The school had produced the highest scorer for the 2023 UTME, Umeh Kamsiyochukwu, who emerged as the highest scorer for the 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.

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,” hence, 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 as currently, the result is not in any paper format.

Meanwhile, Nigerians on Facebook have hailed the top-performing students.

A Facebook user, Thomas Ewa, wrote, “Congratulations all. It takes godliness, discipline, and commitment to achieve such great results.”

Another Facebook user, Olumu Peace, while congratulating the school’s top scorer said, “Congratulations Ayeyemi. Delta Campus is proud of you.”

Ajayi James who posted in the comment section of the post made by the school said, “This is quite incredible, congratulations to the DLHS family. Leadership with Distinction!”
