As 2024 UTME continues, a list of all the best students from 2013 to 2022 in the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) tertiary institution exam has emerged online.

Nigerian journalist Deborah Tolu-Kolawole shared the list online to counter a netizen, @_Eddieee321, who bragged about scoring 379 in her UTME when she sat for it.
