System Glitch, 2 Other Things Eyewitness Says Happened at Mmesoma Ejikeme’s Exam Hall

Mmesoma Ejikeme, a pupil from Anambra State, Nigeria, has been in the spotlight for allegedly faking her 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results.

She claimed to have scored 362 in the 2023 UTME, making her the highest-scoring candidate in the country.

However, the body that conducts UTME, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), and the Anambra state government set up a panel to probe her claim and have debunked it and exposed Mmesoma for manipulating her results.

Here are three things he said:

01. Mmesoma’s system had a glitch

According to the eyewitness, who identified himself as Ilumina Light, Mmesoma’s system developed glitches and stopped working during the CBT.

He said it took the examiners some time to resolve the issue before she could continue with the test. According to him, the incident affected her performance and time management.

02. Mmesoma actually scored 249

Light said Mmesoma’s original score was 249, which is still a high score that can gain admission easily.

He added that she was well informed of her correct score by JAMB, but she sent a request to the board with a different registration number showing a UTME result of an aggregate score of 362.

He also said she manipulated the fake results herself, using her phone.

03. Mmesoma is passionate about studying

Nonetheless, Light praised Mmesoma for being confident and intelligent, despite her deception, saying she is passionate about not just studying but excelling.

Meanwhile, the investigative panel set up by the Anambra State government has indicted Mmesoma and recommended she undergo psychological counselling and therapy.

The saga has also led to Innoson withdrawing its scholarship offer to Mmesoma, who it had earlier honoured as the “indigent overall best UTME candidate.”

The official best candidate in the 2023 UTME is Umeh Kamsiyochukwu Nkechinyere, a student of Deeper Life High School, Mowe, Ogun State.

She scored a total of 360 out of 400 marks, according to JAMB.
