He was scheduled to sit for the JAMB exam on Friday, April 19 and was given Comprehensive High School, Aiyetoro, Ogun, as his venue.

However, the lad went to Comprehensive Academy and when he realised his mistake, it was already late.

He got to the correct location and was not allowed in.

Boy in tears after taking UTME

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a boy was videoed crying after leaving the JAMB UTME centre.

@joy_ce32 shared the video of the boy crying on TikTok with the caption, "Result never come out you dey cry like this."

@joy_ce32 laughed at the lad over his emotional breakdown. While it is unclear what caused the boy to break down that way, assuming it may not be unconnected to his experience during the exam is not out of place.
