16 year old Johnson Emmanuel has set a new Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) record for the school. The feat was achieved after the Benue-born chap amassed a total of 322 points out of the possible 400 in the 2018 UTME exam conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.
A score of 92% in Mathematics, 85% in Physics, 76% Chemistry and 69% in the Use of English was enough for him to set the new record. His achievement hasn’t come as a surprise to many as he is widely known for his unrivalled commitment to his academic work.
In a similar vein, Michael Seth Ubani got 300 out of the possible 400. Seth scored 91% in Mathematics, 75% in Physics, 63% Chemistry and 71% in Use of English.
Kassim Stephen, Ezema Prisca and Ige Seyi also gave good account of themselves with a score of, 298, 291 and 289 respectively.
The principal of the school, Mr. Frederick Opata, has expressed his delight at the new development. He said the continuous excellent performance of students in external examinations over the years is a pointer to the many things the school has been doing right. “Our stance against examination malpractice and various quality assurance measures have been yielding fruits and this is one of them”, Frederick Said.
